I was talking with my wife about some horse hair that I had been looking at online at various sources. It seemed that hair from Mongolia is very popular, as well as Siberia.
But my question is this: Why not hair from local horses (Canadian in my case)? Why can't I go to my local horse ranch and get some hair from their horses? I'm assuming that there is cleaning that must be done but are there other reasons?
Why is Siberian horse hair $500.00 a pound?
I'd just love to get me some local Ottawa/Aylmer horse hair for my bow.
