Recently sold my horse, but I never want to forget him... Ideas?

I recently rehomed my Morgan/Arab gelding. I love him dearly. A bit of my heart will always belong to him. But I decided he would be better off in a home with people who had the time to finish his training and make him the horse I know he can be. I am very privilaged to live within a very short distance of his new home and will be going to see him off and on to see his training progress. However, I want to always have a little bit of him with me. I have had one of my favorite photos of him printed and matted and have ordered a small brass stall plate-type thing with his name on it. I want to make a display of him. I was thinking I could get a bit of his tail hair and do something with that in the display as well.

Does anyone have any ideas for what I could do with the hair? Or any other suggestions? Thanks in advance!

You can make almost anything with horse hair. Bracelets, necklaces, keychains, ornaments, belts. Google it and you could probably come up with more...:)

Good people get cheated, just as good horses get ridden

^^ it's true
I usually make little keychains..I clean, condition, brush, and straighten (if necessary) the hair, fold it in half around a keychain loop thing and band it close to the top, leaving a little loop, then cut it so that it's all straight and even. It's usually about 3-4" from top to bottom.
Sometimes I make a little decorative band for it by beads on a string and tying it around where the rubber band is. It comes out pretty nice =)
I've done it with both mane and tail hair.

With tailhair you could make a pretty nice bracelet..I'd like to try to make one sometime.
