    Hi everyone!

    What is checkline leather? In the context, a collar (for dogs) was made of old checkline leather.

    Thanks,
    Melian

    a checkline or check rein is part of the harness of a horse.
    In French enrênement, perhaps.

    Thanks, Scrivener. It does make sense. The story is about a boy who lives in southeastern US in the 1900's, when they were traveling in a buggy (or other kinds of car pulled by horses).
