    Storing horsehair sporrans

    How do you store horsehair sporrans? Do you hang them up or something else?

    I hang mine vertically on a clothes hanger. It works well, but I still have to straighten the hairs before parades.

    I too hang mine from a clothes hanger but have no trouble with straightening. How do you even do that? I use a product called "Cowboy Magic" which makes the hair smooth and easy to comb - much like a horse's tail which odd as it may sound is similar hair.

    Bill, I run my fingers through the hair to try and straighten things out. I don't think a comb would work on mine. Thanks for the "Cowboy Magic" tip!
