I was just in TSC (farm store) and was passing by the display of lunge whips, riding crops, etc. Among them, there was a show hog stick. At least that's what they called it.
It cost a whopping $9.99 and was bright pink with a grippy handle, about 4' long, and had a nice weight to it. It reminded me - a lot
- of the various majikal sticks, wands, and other Miracle Devices I see being sold in NH trainers' booths at the big horse expos.
Just a lot less expensive.
