If you’ve ever wondered why horse people clip the tail hair and even the forelock of their horses when they die, the practice of keeping the hair of deceased loved ones goes back to Victorian times.Victorian mourning practices are still around today - mourning jewelry, specific clothes for mourning, and keeping hair as a memorial item - it all goes hundreds of years back!
Hair clippings were taken from a deceased loved one and woven into jewelry, wreaths, sculptures, and works of art. Some even incorporated pet hair in their works! Because hair is seen as one of the most personal parts of us with longevity, it seemed like a natural choice for those looking for a keepsake of their loved one.
Today, we commonly see pet parents request fur clippings as a way to keep their beloved pet with them. If this is something you'd like to do for your pet, we can certainly honor your wishes.
