Australian Stock Whips
Australian Stock Whips.
Australian stockwhip is said to have originated from the English
hunting whip, but has evolved into an entirely new type of whip.
It was designed to move mobs of cattle, by making it crack, which would encourage the mob to keep moving.
Australia stockmen and drovers have used the stockwhip since the early
19th century and it is still the preferred whip used by Australian
cattlemen and women today.
Whip Shed Stock Whips are made to the designs developed by Brian Nemeth over 40 years of whip making.
Red Hide Stock Whips
