I was at a Tack shop buying fly off for our dogs and I happened to notice an item there that reminded me of the Black and White ROTJ Wookie Braid.
This one was not black and white, it was sorrel and white. It looked just like it though.
It is called Stampede Strings, used to hold your cowbot hat on. So since the girth belt was also a horse or tack item, you think that the notorious Black and White braid may be just this?
I found one on Ebay here: http://cgi.ebay.com/HORSEHAIR-AUTHEN...QQcmdZViewItem
Then I googled up these:http://www.horsehairart.com/art_work...de_strings.htm
I don't know but I think this may be a nail on the head, correct me if I'm wrong.
But for $17 and its long too!
