Horse Hair for Hire

Rarely used now, bundles of horsehair are written with a whipping action in mind. The lack of sound that this action produces means that only under certain circumstances can this effect become effective. The type of hair used is also important. Shetland pony hair was deemed to have the best tonal quality but due to their size and speed, they are not easy to catch.
