Unless a leather item is identified as "deerskin", "elk hide", or some other specific leather, you can pretty much assume that it is cow. If your child has a leather allergy, you can buy a "No-Glov" or similar device from 3Rivers: http://www.3riversarchery.com/No-Glov+Finger+Savers_i5402_baseitem.html . These are very difficult to install, so ask your local archery shop to put it on the string, or order a new string and pay for 3Rivers to mount the No-Glov on it for you. The No-Glov will need to be replaced whenever the string itself wears out. 3Rivers also offers vinyl arm guards and quivers in their youth archery department.
