Animal Skins in Mojo Ethiopia Market

Animal Skins in Mojo Ethiopia Market
I believe these are photos of the animal hides or skins, maybe of Horses and Cows here in Mojo, Ethiopia. The people in the market seldom speak English, I can take the photo, however to learn specifically what I am photographing can take days to feel certain. Yes, someone will agree with me, if I say,
“Is this a Horse Hide?”

However to know for sure, they must volunteer the information, and then I must double-check their English.

There appears to be two types of skins or hides here, I believe the wrinkled ones are Horse and the more organized ones are cows. It is also possible they are goats, but they seem big for a goat.

It is possible these skins are donkeys also, I have to be lucky to just walk up and ask and learn the answers.

Leather, skins, pelts, there is a big Tannery Business thriving in Ethiopia and they say is polluting the streams. I have seen no good leatherwork done here in Ethiopia yet in my travels.
