Stefan, thats a beauty of a brush - I've grown to like horse hair brushes a lot.  I think they perform very well and you can say that no horses were injured in the making of this brush which is a nice extra.  I also found your build log to be very interesting - Is there a texture or stiffness difference between mane and tail hair?  
Thanks for sharing this with us, I really appreciate the dedication that you bring to your craft.

Hey Mark, thanks for the kind words. Yes, the mane hair is definitely finer and with less backbone, but is also much more prone to knotting.. For my next brush, I will use a mixture of the two hairs with a lower loft to minimize the knotting and to make a brush that is softer but retains the backbone. Everyone has different preferences, but I made this brush as something I, personally, would like to use.

Stefan, thats interesting, I'd imagine there would be variation between different breeds of horses as well. I'd like a brush made from the mane of a descendant of Genghis Khan's Mongul horses or maybe from the mane of a descendant of Alexander the Great's horse, Bucephalus. Ok, I'm getting a little crazy here. Its going to be great to follow your horse hair brush development program.

The Horse hair was just to practice tying knots. I have something much more exotic in mind.
