How we measure our hides: 

We measure our hides from tip of noise to end of rump and across belly. We do not include the tail size or leg width in our measurements.

What is Felt and should I opt to have it on my hide?

Felt is a material (same that is found on snooker tables) that is placed on the underside of the hide which is usually black in colour but can be any colour of choice, then glued and sewn onto the hide. The felt is a personal preference for people with some liking it and other prefer the natural look. With felt on you get a small black border that frames the hide.

Personally I would have felt on a hide if it is going to be placed on the floor and walked on. Not only does in make the kin feel softer to walk on but also protects the underside of the hide. If you do not like the black border that the felt gives the hide we can trim the felt to the same size as the hide so that it will not be seen but you still have the feel and protection of the felt.

  • Fun Fact

  • Why do zebras have stripes at all?
  • Scientists aren't sure, but many theories center on their utility as some form of camouflage.
  • The patterns may make it difficult for predators to identify a single animal from a running herd and distort distance at dawn and dusk.
  • Or they may dissuade insects that recognize only large areas of single-colored fur or act as a kind of natural sunscreen.
  • Because of their uniqueness, stripes may also help zebras recognize one another
