    Hello Everybody, after a while i'm back to the a2 "business" and just placed an order for an Aero of Scotland Bronco, Seal Goatskin with rust knits :):):). Never owned a Goatskin A2, what do you think, is it a good choice? Any opinion? (still in time to change the order....).

    original wwll broncos were made of cow, hh and goat. the ones that i have handled, and have seen were all in a true russet or slightly darker russet unless redyed seal. originals tend to fit slightly snug in the waist with ample shoulder and upper chest room. years ago, i had an aero-scotland made bronco and found it to be very well made, and true to originals in design, proportions, and details.

    You can't go wrong with goatskin. Good choice.

    Goat is good. A bit more supple than horse I'd say. The grain is way different of course.

    best of luck with it. Goat is super, I seem to recall you are a horse guy, maybe HH hits close to home these days?

    I must confess that lately when I wear hh in the stables always feel like somebody's watching me.... :)

    I am in my fifth year of being around horses all the time and second year of horse ownership (my daughter rides) and yes, wearing HH is starting to not feel as good. ;)

    What leather are saddles made off?

    Good question, cowhide mainly I reckon, never heard of saddles made of HH... could be awkward...

    typically cowhide but synthetics are really becoming really popular for/as competitive saddles.
