Does anyone know if this is a reindeer hide? Looks so soft & I wonder if it's as durable as cow hides?

I've got a lot of catching up to do today with the shop. Being sick is terrible. Not just the lack of sleep or the general feeling like death, but also because when mom isn't well, things just pile up. I feel like this laundry could suffocate me & I'm seriously thinking of just shoving it in bags and donating it, just so that I don't have to keep washing & folding!

  4. Definitely a springbok (a South African buck) http://www.africancraftsmarket.com/Springbuck-skin-hides.htm. I think my grandpa used to have one of these around and if you brush it in the right direction it is soft (like a short haired dog) but course in the other direction.
