How did you collect all the hair, and how much did it take to spin into a rope?

I tried a mecate set on a snaffle bit and I hated the feel of it. It made the bit feel unbalanced to me, so the only mecate rein I ever really used was on my bosal (which I unfortunately lost in the barn fire). Now the rein is just an extra long lead rope that I use when I'm working with young horses LOL.

When we were cleaning out the saddle barn we found a box of hair. The guy that worked there before us roached a bunch of horses before he quit/got fired. They thought he took the hair with him when he left, but he must of hid it in the barn and forgot about it. It was a big box but some that hair has in bad shape and not useable. I had some that I had been saving as well, so I am not sure how much of it had to be tossed.

For anyone that is interested I have a braided Alpaca rope that came from Peru. I am not a fan of it, so I will sell it if anyone is interested.

Smrobs, your reins look very similar in color to mine! (:

Yep, LOL, I'm a sucker for anything blue .

Me too! Blue is Joker's color. The only thing I'm having trouble on deciding is what color his SMB's are going to be! Royal blue to match his barrel reins, or turquoise(?) to match the mecate's. You think royal blue would look ok with lighter blue reins like what he has?

I think it would look fine.

Yeah, I think different colors of blue look pretty good together. Thanks (:
