Awesome Christmas gift!!! This is a cowhide that I got from a friend in Germany that bred Scottish Highlander cattle. This came from a black steer that he butchered and had this hide tanned. There are areas of scarring on the hide. This was from some injuries that occurred in close quarters from other highlanders with super long horns. It does not distract from the beauty of this nice hide. It is well tanned and very heavy. Approx. 28 lbs or so. The hair is around 2.5" long around the neck area. The measurements are: Tip of the tail to the neck = 130" (10' 8" ) Base of tail to neck = 89" (7' 4" ) Width = 77" (6' 4" ) I am only getting rid of this hide because I have a common red highlander hide that I am keeping and due to their large size, I have no room for both. $400.00 OBO. This is a great chance to own a hard to find hide!
