    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:
