This listing is for an adjustable horsehair bracelet braided in two different shades of sorrel. The hair was collected by me from a mare named "Lucy" and a gelding named "Buddy. Lucy was seized from her former owner due to severe neglect. She was extremely emaciated and being actively ridden. When she arrived at the shelter she had lice, and after being treated for lice she developed a horrible case of rain rot. Buddy was surrendered by his owner in lieu of pressing charges. He was living in a fenced in front yard with no access to hay or good grass, and had a badly embedded halter. We thought Buddy might die, but his will to live was strong. He healed without a scar and both he and Lucy were adopted into loving forever homes. This bracelet is adjustable to any size and would be appropriate for any lover of horses, male or female.
All of my horsehair items are handmade by me using horsehair gathered from animals encountered through my work in the animal welfare field. Only a small amount is taken from each horse during the normal grooming process. Each animal is an individual who's memory lives on in the items made from their hair, even after the animal has passed through my life. All my horsehair is cruelty-free, is not a by-product of the equine slaughter industry and is vegetarian/vegan friendly.
Any proceeds from this item go to help feed and house my current foster mare, Firefly.
