    All I have to say is WOW. Rendered or slaughtered, I am pretty sure the horse no longer needs his hide. I would say that the OP should untwist those knickers, but then my entertainment for the work day would cease. That would be a travesty.

    Let me guess.... now the holster has been made from all of those great local rendering plants in Mexico. & canada. & england.
    No. it comes from horse meat slaughter plants not in this country. And now you'll tell me it doenst & say I dont know that. Well you dont know that it doesnt!!!
    At what point did you decide to lie/make this up?
    Galco, along with a lot of other leather product companies, gets their leather from Horween's in Chicago. From skins obtained in the country. Horween's is world famous for their leather and is also very proud of the fact that they're a US company using US supplies.
    (there are 4 or 5 Horweens in the country, started in the early 1900s)

    And they do indeed get their supplies from many, many US rendering plants.

    Guess nobody is surprised that someone starting a trolling thread will lie when cornered by their lack of knowledge and experience with their subject. Anything to prove a point/win an argument/defend their ignorance.
    if you can't prove your point, lie. And if you don't like the subject or the people who explain it to others, call them names or accuse them of being immoral.

    Haven't posted in ages...I'm lazy that way...but, THIS makes it all worthwhile to break the silence. I haven't laughed so hard...alone...in a very long time. Just golden.
    Is it me or do 99.9% of cowboys just look better with their hats on?

    then again...it really does not matter.

    I mean, yes, to the company it does. but not in the grand scheme of discussion. because...well, for some it is just hard to comprehend that Dobbins does not majikally dissolves into butterflies and rainbows as his soul departs for the big pasture in the sky.

    Give up, Chancy. Too many grown-ups on this board who've been around horses too long to listen to frothing at the mouth from hysterics.

    I notice you kind of skipped over the inquiries about whether you avoid ALL those products containing dead horse--lipstick, ice cream, gummy candies, medicines...so do you?

    Perhaps 'nice' in the way a colonoscopy is 'nice'?

    I'm totes sure the manufacturer took time out of their day to speak on the phone with an hysterical tween/teen about where their leather comes from.

    Pish dancer, of COURSE she uses all those products! We're all just lying that they come from dead horsies!!!!

    well, if they have good customer service, I am sure they recorded it for future amusement.

    Regardless, after a really quick superficial google search and opening random links, I learned that horse leather holsters are sought after by specialists who depend on their equipment to survive harsh elements, such as Special Forces etc.

    it's really a tough concept: Sometimes nature made IS best...

    Even as a vegan, I really don't care where the hide comes from... I object to animals being killed for human use, period, but... IT'S ALREADY DEAD. There isn't some poor skinless pony running around bemoaning the existence of Cabelas or whatever this company is called.

    So OP, even the resident vegan thinks you're a bit off your rocker on this one.
    I've heard there's more to life than an FEI tent and hotel rooms, so I'm trying it.

    Remember the "Retail Horror Stories" thread from Off Topic Day?

    Can we all have a respectful moment of silence for the poor souls who had to deal with Miss Crazypants today?
    Well isn't this dandy?

    Between this thread, the carriage thread and Tin Hatters - I'm never going to get anything done today! I must admit this one does provide comic relief.

    Wow, this thread really reminds me why I'm here instead of working, like I should be doing. The entertainment powers of COTH once again... Well, I really should cease to be amazed.

    First we get a mentally unstable OP, who probably will do some really good for herself if she were on some kind of psychotic med, and then we get bunch of posters persevered, tolling in the impossible task of drilling some sense into the OP's head. Hat off to you, ladies.

    What is stunning to me and not to the OP is that the COTH responses are in univeral agreement. A rarely seen confluence of opinions that the OP just cannot see. The earth should implode any minute now.
