Default Learning to throw a rope

Wow! That's a thing of beauty, Matt! Great Job! I'm sure he'll love it! GWIZ has a point, Maybe a couple of balls welded to the ends of the horns?

You brought back a memory from perhaps 60 years ago. I had seen films of cowboys roping cattle so I got a length of my mama's clothesline and fashioned a slipknot in one end - and tried for maybe a week straight to throw that rope over ANYTHING! The rope was so soft and floppy it wouldn't form an open loop but what does a nine-year-old know? Many years later I was at my first rodeo and saw how stiff the rope was .......

You need to make a video for us 'dudes' of you throwing the rope with either hand.
