The blacksnake was commonly used when working with teams of horses. The whip could be slung over the hame of a horse or carried around the neck in working a team of mules. With the heavy load it can be thrown directly from the neck. The blacksnake is heavily shot loaded well down the thong. The blacksnake moves slowly at first but the unloaded end snaps out quickly.
