    Default what to do with my horse's tail

    Recently I had to put down my horse, but thankfully I was able to keep his tail. The only problem is I have no idea what to do with it. Its all brushed and clean but it is just sitting in my room. Is it possible to make it into a fake tail so I can hang it up in my room and not loose all of the hair? Or is there another way I can bind it so that I don't loose all of the strands of hair? My horse had a long tail and it was fairly thick and I would like to try to keep as much of it as I can. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    I'm very sorry for your loss. I don't know how to preserve the tail as a whole, but many people take a small section and have it woven into jewelry.

    I had a necklace made from my (still living) mare's tail from Hairloom Treasures. www.hairloomtreasures.com

    I wonder if you found out who manufactures the fake tails for the Saddlebreds and such, if they could take your tail and make a fake tail out of it that way.....just a thought.

    Thanks you. And I was thinking about making a bracelet out of some of it too but I'm not sure yet.
