    I looked at a bunch of livery emblems/badges. Most are quite a bit smaller than the goat badge.

    And I don't understand the tabs on the back. There doesn't seem to be a way to attach it to anything...

    My friend says the tabs may have been bent to affix the badge.

    We can see that 3 1/2 of 7 tabs are broken or missing.

    The ones that went on horses like this one are all sizes, seen very larges one's, those fixings, although more than usual went into holes on leather.
