After thousands of hours working on a ranch, doing dozens of jobs all cowboys and ranchers know about, the lariat just loses its life and is tossed aside. What does a rope do then? Like many things, it is given a chance for a new life. Rod Judy has used two lariats to design this tall rope basket. It is 11" high, 8" across the bottom, with a 5" opening. A slice of deer horn is fastened with a leather string to complete the look.
