    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Bullhide? My goat stuff is, as you said, less textured, softer, and smaller grained. Bull stuff (on Italian bags sometimes labeled "toro") is quite large grained like that.

    But, again, with all this stuff it's hard to tell unless you have it in hand, and even then difficult (thanks to better synthetic or artificial graining techniques).

    I'll post a link to one of my old threads:
