Our Not So Perfect Belted Galloway Hides are mainly those that don't have that perfect belt or have just a uniquieness about them that makes them special and our dear tanner has talked us into getting some of the imperfect beltie hides done as in his words "The hair on the hides are fantastic and it just makes them a bit more unique. You may be quite surprised". And we have been! So you never know what may pop up here that is 'that bit different'.

There are also a few that have been damaged due to the abattoir processing.

Once going through the available hides, if you would like more photos and information regarding the hair or where the nicks/holes are or any other damage, please contact us at and we will only be too happy to reply.

You will also be responsible for any GST that maybe incurred if you do not live in Australia along with any of your own countries custom's fees.  Postage prices will vary due to weight and country and can be organised on application.

Nationally, we accept payment by Cash or via Direct Deposit whilst internationally, we accept payment via Direct Deposit (this will incur a $20 handling fee) or through Western Union or similar.

We have more hides being processed throughout the year and as they come in we will be add them to the site. Please note that as at the 1st January 2016, there unfortunately, has been a large price rise. Apart from the normal increasing costs, the tanner has been hit with a new 'effluent' cost from his local council. You will note that this price increase will only affect any new hides from 2016 on.

#33 Damaged. This is a summer hide that was not to be tanned due to him moulting, however, he somehow slipped through the system at the abattoir and was processed before we knew it. He still would make a nice rug in the kid's or adult's play room or the men’s shed.
