Fail Knot Making

After harvesting my horse hair in an unorthodox method I have to admit to a fail in my first attempt at knot making. While the knot was a miserable fail I learned a lot and will be better prepared next time. I know I can do it.

1. It takes quite a lot of hair to make a knot and I didn't harvest enough
2. The hair from the mane of the brumby I used was not course enough, this added to my troubles
3. There is not a lot of hair in the tail on a brumby. The horse tail is not hair from the bum down; it has a solid core.

There is a chance I will have to drive a truck back into Darwin in February. Probably won't see a brumby.
