Default Horse hair

I was just in North Carolina and came across some "horse hair" pots. They
were in white, blue and green with black veins. My question is, how were
these done and what does horse hair have to do with it?

Here's a link I found showing a horsehair pottery firing demo:

Thank you for that link, Deborah. I'm going to try that.
Since hair is pretty much the same, I'll try it with clippings from the
local pet groomer first!
Thanks again,

"Horse hair" is usually hair from the tail which is long and thick.
It gives you a more distinct line and you can "draw" with the hair.
Pet hair will work, but the result will be different. Give it a try
and see if you like it. Some people also use feathers. You might
also try thick cotton thread.
