making a horse hair stampede string

My next door neighbors 35 year old gelding Red died the day before yesterday. He'd had him a long time, and got him when he was 18 months old so needless to say he was quite attached to him.

He couldn't bear to watch him buried so I took care of it.

To make a long story short, I got some hair from his tail and I'd like to have something made for him from it and was thinking about a stampede string, maybe something else?

Is this something I can do or where should I send it?

Suggestions?

How sad...
That was nice of you to help take care of the burial and think of gifting a keepsake :)

I have seen some websites, can't remember the name, that did tassels and hatbands, they might be able to do a stampede string.
And I know of a gal in ID that makes mecates and get downs from yacht rope and puts a horse hair tassel on the end with a hand braided leather knot.

Gunslinger, don't know if you're on Facebook, she might have a site as well. I believe it's called Horse Hair bracelets by Candace. She does keychains, strings, necklaces anything you really ask for she will do. They look great and are a reasonable price!
