Equine Cancer Awareness Ribbon

20141224_125519-2

1/15/15.  A series of recent, seemingly unrelated events resulted in the creation and naming of this ribbon.  A grant I got to study advanced braiding required a community project.  I did two: demonstrated at an Oktoberfest and braided bracelets for graduates of a program at an equine therapy center from the hair of the horse to which each was assigned.  Soon after making a bracelet, a dear therapy horse suffered a sudden onset of cancer and was euthanized.  The remnant of  braid left over was not long enough to make another bracelet.  So I used a bow from the dog grooming/boarding business where I work part time to make this ribbon.  At first I called it an Equine Cancer Awareness Ribbon.  I changed the name when an Oktoberfest client ordered a necklace and mentioned she was a cancer survivor.
