Pony hair is a generic term for hair-on hide - cow or calf leather that has not had the hair removed - also known as haircalf. No ponies involved.

I believe it is because of the drought in Texas, there is n water for the cows. When I was in Texas alot of furniture was made of animal hide or hair. One way to save the hide or hair is to make purses.

not always..sometimes pony hair is pony hair. Isaac M. sells a handbag here on the Q for 1600 bucks, made in Italy, The flap of the bag is genuine ponyhair, the body is calf's leather and the strap and trim are buffalo. When he aired it a while back, viewers including calledi n, and it is ponyhair. It is ugly too. check it out

I can't imagine that they made this bag out of an actual pony...
