A tail of love




One more reason to love Etsy. 
Kathy Welsh at Tails of Love made this bracelet from Hank's tail and mane hair.
Could it be more beautiful? I don't think so.

    Beautiful, beautiful!!

    Who the heck is making all that noise in the background, by the way?!
    Are those the new chicks on the block, or the old hens?!? Ha ha!!

  13. How wonderful...and beautiful. I sensed the herd knew exactly what it was. While nothing can really ease the pain, I'm sure having this bracelet is a comfort.

  18. Oh My. Love it. I'll be checking out that site next. I have a lock of mane from my mare when she passed in 2008. I'm sure it's not enough for a bracelet but maybe there are other options.

  42. I wish I had done that with my last horse. I was crying so hard I couldn't think at all.

  49. Lovely keepsake - I wonder if they could still smell Hank, it looked as though Lucy was taking a moment to remember him too.

  50. Very, very beautiful, this tail of love, and such a wonderful idea.
    (Wish I could do something similar with the silky-smooth undercoat of my love-of-my-life dog; he died 15 years ago, but I still have a little bag full of his lovely fur.)

  52. The bracelet is beautifully done. I loved how Alan, George and Lucy lingered over it, probably recognizing Hank's smell. Sweet, expressive Alan has his nostrils flared to take it in. Of course, the bracelet brings back memories of your hatband made from Lyle's mane and tail. I had to go back and see it once more. I was hoping you would use your Go Pro soon, even if you don't feel like taking photos. Thanks for sharing. The new header is beautiful.

  56. I love the new banner although I will miss saying hello to the faces each time in check in.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Oh Carson, that broke my heart. And it's beautiful. And the burros... they knew.

  58. Is that Alan in the new banner? I'm pretty sure it's not Lucy. But I'm not certain which of the boys it might be.

  59. It is a beautiful. I hope you aren't gone too long, I am still waiting for a update from Danni on her Llama since April 1st of last year...I love your animal stories and hope you are all doing well. Miss you.

  60. Oh, Carson, my dear ... this is probably the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. So meaningful, and so personal. I know a few people who will certainly want to have one made for themselves. Thank you VERY much for sharing it with us.

  61. Beautiful header on the blog today.

    ReplyDelete
  62. That is a beautiful bracelet. I love that it has Hank's name on it, too. I had one made from my mare's tail hair some years ago, but no name on mine. Not that we need reminders...but they do bring back sweet memories. It's nice to see the herd again. Sending good thoughts your way.
