chivarras

(Sp. model spelled same [t∫ipáras] < chivo 'goat'; originally a call used in herding goats, and in this sense it is an expressive creation common to many languages)
   Texas: 1892. Chaps made of goatskin with the hair left on the outside. The DRAE references chivarras as pants made of hairy goatskin. Santamaría concurs.
   Alternate form: chivarros.
