From chapter 9 Cowboy Clothing: Chaps, short for chaparajos, were seatless leg coverings used by cowboys as protection from heavy brush, rope burns, horse bites, and abrasions from corral poles. . . . . On cold Northern ranges, cowboys sought the warmth of "woolies". A long-haired variation of shotguns or batwings, woolies - or "hair pants"- were commonly made of angora goat hides.
