Re: [RC] leather tack - Barbara McCrary

I don't know if it is so much that the leather is poor quality as whether the leather is dyed red, as in "red latigo."  I don't think cows' hides come in that color, so they must dye it.  <g>

Is it only poor quality leather that "bleeds" on horses? I had a couple of leather headstalls that bled on my grey horse when he sweated, leaving stripes on his face. I wasn't fond of that look. Just curious, if I got a "good quality" leather headstall, will that not happen? 

I don't recall where I got one of the headstalls. The other one was given to me. Made from leather scraps on the spot by a kind soul that took pity on me when he saw my horse sporting a hay string braided bridle since I couldn't afford anything better at the time. Ah, the memories.
