Cow hide is used in U.S (and most other places) for leather goods because people feel less emotional over using the skin from something that is getting killed to be butchered and eaten, instead of an animal that many view as a pet.
I saw a WWII vintage military pamphlet that covered various types of leather and their suitability for various uses. Horsehide IS more abrasion resistant and has more tensile strength than cowhide, and kangaroo is better than both. They recommended using kangaroo for drive belts for manufacturing machinery. The pamphlet was in a bunch of stuff my Uncle (a seebee) had collected during the war.

I won it on ebay from seller WearWolf Leathers.  Its a vintage jacket, not new.
