Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Primitive Horse

I post another in 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 was photographed in Maine.

Do you know the location of weathervane post #373?  Scroll down to find the answer.

This very large weathervane above the barn behind the Wine and Cheese Deli in Wells, Maine looks home made.  At a distance it looks like a wooden weathervane, but in the close up photograph I can see rivets, so perhaps it is cut from some kind of sheet metal?  What ever it is made of, it is large and visible from quite a distance down Route 1.  However, I'm sure that most people are busy checking out the large yellow wheel of cheese and the gray mouse above the entrance to the cheese shop instead of noticing the weathervane.

The running horse weathervane is the most popular weather vane in New England, although in other parts of the country the cow and rooster are very popular for barns, too.
