Tail frames for deceased horse

Hello all and thanks for your help in advance.

Unfortunatley my wife had to have her horse of 20 years put down this morning as he was lame. Treatment we have given him for the past 6 months had not helped him and it was nicer than finding him tripped with a broken leg etc as he was a fiesty old fella with the mind of a pony.

Once he had passed, my wife cut off his tail as a reminder and I would like to get it mounted with some photos in a frame of some kind.

I have looked high and low for something like this but have been unable to find anything.

I was hoping someone on here knows of someone or somewhere I could get this done or knows where sells frames like this?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jason

What we did when we put down my dad's horse, was took the braided tail, and a cute little stuffed animal horse that looked exactly like my dad's horse, and along with a couple other things, put them in a shadow box that we got at Michaels. The point was having a nice box, which fit the tail better, and we were able to add a few other things that reminded us of the horse, and put it all together to hang up on the wall, or put up on a shelf. Michaels has lots of different types of frames, and a framing person you can talk to if you have additional questions. That's what I would suggest.

You might do a search for shadow box frames. Those are basically picture frames with much more space between the glass and backing so that you can put other items in there without worrying about them getting smashed.

That is a very sweet thing to do to remember a beloved friend.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Shadow box is a great idea..

Another idea, if you would want to..I cut a few strands out of Hickory's tail and had it made into a bracelet..It's very pretty and reminds me of him. It's braided hair with a charm with his name on it..you could probably do the same and it mean alot to her..Just a thought..

You could look it up on your own.. I personally love this site..

There is a nice company that will imbed a tail ahir into a glass heart or pendent, it looks nice.

^^ Gosh something like Equinelox (This one will put in in aring or a necklace or bracelt) It looks very good and pro. I think that it what it is called anyways
