i got the horse hair for $6.99 each at the tandy leather store and braided them myself .this stuff is thick and it was only about 18 inches long . so i halfed it , then braided it and then rubber banded them together at the ends to make them about 38 inches long . i have also seen horse hair for sale in the classifieds under farm stuff . tomorrow i will go to wal-mart and get some hair color remover and see if that will make the thick blond one a little yellower .you can see in a close up pic that the hair has differenrt colors in it . it looks more natural then some hair braids bought at sally's or something .

The web site said $12.99 a bundle.
When I spoke to the woman at the store I called she seemed a
bit surprised and kept saying "if that is what the web site says...that's what i will charge you." I didnt know what to make of that. All I know is that I don't like what I have now and want them upgraded b4 5/19.

Anyone have pics of the horsehais braids in the first post? i don't see any.

Thanks all.

Never mind... I posted two sites that USED to be online that sold Native American stuff INCLUDING horse hair. My bad!

Sorry, to resurrect such an old thread, but where do you guys get horsehair these days. I didn't see them on tandy's website anymore.
