Cutting and Cleaning Instructions:

      Grasp the longest hairs at the bottom of your horse’s tail.

      Lifts the longest hair over to the side with one hand, and with the other hand pull the shorter hairs away. Separate away as many short hairs as possible so you are cutting the longest hairs.

      Cut as close to the tailbone as possible.

      Cut 2-4 bunches from different places on the tail so you do not cut too big a chunk from one place.

      The final bundle should be about the diameter of a pencil. For a standard sized bracelet the length needs to be about 15 inches in length, and for a necklace it needs to be about 20 inches in length.

      Tie a rubber band around the top of the bundle.

      Wash and condition the hair (your hair care products will work)

      After you wash the hair let it dry completely.

      Coil the hair nicely and place it in a zip-lock bag with your name and the horse’s name.
