Same with those tail extensions used in some events.
Are you sure that those tails come from slaughter horses? I knew of quite a few farms in Los Angeles that purchased non-registered or registered horses that they used as broodmares, or lesson horses, or even pasture pals, but they would keep pristine care of the tail, then cut most of it and sell it to companies who would further clean it and sell it as tail "wigs".
The condition of the hair, and the length of the hair on slaughter horses tails is very poor from the malnutrition. It is brittle and difficult to work with, and also chewed off, or sparse.
That has been my experience though ^^
Wow barnrat.. shoes made from a dog? That's sick. I want to know why people feel the need to slaughter cats, dogs, and horses when we already have VERY good meat sources in Cattle, Swine, and Poultry. We don't need to expand our palette.. what we eat now works fine anyways o_o; (im not a vegetarian, i hope that doesnt offend, lol)
Ugh.. anything for "fashion" though... >____>;; what ever happened to wearing clothes because they like.. hid your naked-ness and kept you warm? Why do we need to skin animals.. mind you, very useful animals, when we have perfectly fine cotton.. *grumps*
