Mayo Milliken of Walsh, Alberta, writes, “This object was among some old, horse-related items given to my partner by an older horseman. It’s made of cast iron, stands 12-inches high and looks as if it could have been mounted on a wall. The round part on the end might have had some sort of wood dowelling go through it.”

What do you think? Can you help Mayo solve this mystery?
