    This item has me stumped. Is it some sort of hand farm tool? It is about 5 1/2 inches wide and 3 inches front to back. Two of the spikes stick straight up and are about 1 1/2 inches long. The two loop places on the side are only about a 1/2 inch opening that could perhaps hold a strap of some sort. It is not perfect and appears to be hand forged. Anyone know what this is?

      How is it used and how old do you think it is?
    4. TallCakes TallCakes, 3 years ago
      fits in the calves nose and thus 'tortures' the cow as calf attempts to nurse. Here's a similar patent:

      It looks like they are using plastic devices now. Thanks for the heads up.
