The Story of Horse Hair Designs
I have a passion and love for horses. I believe that we create a special bond and relationship with the horses that are in our lives. Sadly, when they leave us, it is devastating.
In my years around horses, I have had to say goodbye to a lot of equine friends. Three of those were mine. R.C., died at 6 of cancer, Izzy died at 14 of COPD, and Chief died at 31 after paralyzing his hind quarters as a result of a fall.
After R.C. died, I cut off pieces of his mane and tail as a keepsake. Not knowing what to do with it, I put it into a bag, then into a drawer. I later met a friend who introduced me to making talismans and tail wisps. Since then I have been making talismans, fly wisps, necklaces, braclets, key chains, and dream catchers for others from their horse’s hair.
These are truly memorable keepsakes. I would enjoy creating something special for you.
