Lime mortar and horse hair


Loyal Member

I have just been watching a show on telly and they were building a wall the " old fashioned" way with lime mortar and horse hair.

Is it really horse hair? :confused: Im just wondering how they did this. Its not like sheep you can shear. Im assuming when a horse died that the hair was kept for the purpose of building :confused:
