If your horse is still with us, simply brush out their tail (please do not use detangler) and take a few snippets of tail hair from the bottom of the tail bone. The longest hairs hide in here! If your horse has multi colored tail, feel free to take snippets from all over, but please make sure each snippet is at least 15" long.
If your horse has passed, I am so sorry. Please send me what you have - or, if your able to, separate the hair you need.
There is no need to wash the hair first unless it has bodily fluids on it.
Band the hair where you cut and coil it loosely into a ziplock baggie. Please make sure to send your contact information along with your package.
