Tack identifying???

So moving into my new barn I get a nice big fancy tack room all to myself. We I was going through some of the other sheds and just abandon buildings and one had some old tack in it amongst other buckets and just junk. All of it was just laying on the floor and not taken care of. So I saw some things with a little bit of promise left in them being:
A (I'm sure was once a really expensive) hay bag
A purple nylon breast plate
A leather one ear sliding head stall
And another leather western bridle.

I asked my bo whos stuff that was and if i could have the things i found, he said it was the old property managers and said i could have what ever i found in that shed. I cleaned the leather up with just some water to get all the dirt off and dressed the leather with neatsfoot oil and I saw some markings or leather stamps and that's what I have questions on...

The sliding ear headstall had a circle with a y in it followed by the numbers 116-5806. That's a circle y logo right? I will take pics tomorrow btw.

The other western bridle has the name "Stohutz Brothers" stamped into it. Is that a good brand? I saw the website come up but I don't know a lot about the brand.

Any help or info would be greatly appreciated :)

The Circle Y is quality leather. Unfamiliar with the Stohutz Bros. but I did find Schutz Bros. It seems their leather goods are quality. Whomever left the stuff behind liked quality. It's cheaper in the long run.

Its Schutz Bros. Good stuff, I think their leather is higher quality than Circle Y.
Good find!

Here is the circle y...

I put my bit on it and sized it up to my horse and went riding. The other bridle is still in pieces to be conditioned.
