Cowboy’s waxed cotton ropes. When you are branding a large herd of cattle it takes every hand you can get, right down to the smallest buckaroo. For most ranch families, working cows means many long days of hard work.
Cowboy’s – Waxed cotton rope
When they brand calves they recruit the whole family. This is no different for the Hatch Family. Cordell works on the TA Ranch and on the side he and Siara own and runs a business called Hatch Tack.
Here they build custom saddles, taps, chaps, cinches, and other custom made items. They also sell ropes by the dozens. One of the favorite ropes among the ranch hands is the Waxed Cotton rope. This rope can be found at Hatch Tack on Facebook or their website www.hatchtack.com.
I caught up with a few cowboys that use the Waxed Cotton Rope, just to find out what they think of this rope and why it has become one of their favorites.
Daron Little said this about the Waxed Cotton Rope. “These ropes last a long time. They break in fast out of the sticky feel and have a lot of life and weight. They also throw well in the wind.”
Caleb Munns couldn’t praise the rope enough. “The Waxed Cotton Rope cuts through the wind. It breaks in fast. This rope is consistent with how it feels. The waxed cotton feels like a poly in the summer, but still has a lot of life in it. It feels like a nylon rope in the winter. It holds up good in the water and the mud. The Waxed Cotton rope lasts!”
Colton Nielsen also likes to use the Waxed Cotton Rope. He says, “I like to use waxed cotton when roping off my colts because the coils are easy to manage and they have a lot of life and action”
