Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Long Horn Cow on the New England Coast

I post a series of weather vane photographs every Wednesday.  This started with images of weathervanes from the Londonderry, New Hampshire area, but now I've found interesting weather vanes all across New England and across the globe.  Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting.  Often my readers tip me off to some very unique or unusual weathervanes, too!  If you know a great weather vane near you, let me know if you'd like to have it featured on this blog.

Today's weather vane is from somewhere in New Hampshire.

Do you know the location of weathervane post #301?  Scroll down to find the answer.

Usually on coastal roads in New England you can see plenty of weathervanes with lobsters, whales, ships and sailboats.  This is the first time I've seen a long horn steer anywhere on the coast, or anywhere in New England!

This is a finely detailed three dimensional weather vane. We took photos from every side of the building to get views of all the legs and horns.  There is also a great patina on this weathervane, although it is only 15 years old. The feathers and arrowhead on the arrow vane are gilded, and the letters representing the cardinal points are white or silver (we couldn't tell from our distance below the building).

Currier's Leather Gallery was established in 1982, and has been in this location on Route 1A since 2001.
