Regarding timing... on its own A1 is technically longer then 16 for the average dancer......however the timing in B2 seldom takes 16.  When the 2 are in action together 9 sets out of 10 have no problem.  Rip & Snort will still get close to 8 counts to accomplish.  This is an easy dance that brings out laughter.  It is also good to set up the caller to use R&S later in the evening in a square without having to teach the move during the Sq Dance walk thru.  Enjoy.  Also a big thanks to Tom Hinds who was my sounding board when working on this one

I think you're correct about it taking between 4 and 8 beats (more like 6).

If you want someone to ask, I'm pretty sure Jane Ewing of Alabama wrote a dance 
with this move in it.

I don't think that we need to be rigid about the names we use today, but I 
suspect that historically cowboy loop was for four people and rip and snort was 
for 8.  There are callers who have been calling longer than I have and can 
correct me if I'm wrong.
