Animal Weathervanes
Animal Weathervanes:  animal weathervane is an instrument used to indicate wind direction. It consists of an asymmetrically shaped object, e.g., an horse or a rooster, mounted at its center of gravity so it can move freely about a vertical axis. The portion of the object with greater surface area (usually the tail) offers greater resistance to the wind and thus positions the vane so that the forward part points in the direction from which the wind is blowing. The animal weather vane must be mounted at a distance from the nearest obstacle equal to at least twice the height of the obstacle above the vane if the observed wind direction is to be representative of meteorologically significant wind patterns; for this reason, the animal weathervane is often mounted on a pole or tower that is in turn mounted on the roof of a tall building.

Animal Weathervane - the Mechanics :

Weathervanes or Weather Vanes are as old as our fascination with wind and were one of the first meteorological instruments. Weathervanes work because of their pivoted construction: the ornament has a socket that attaches to a spindle. In order for it to catch the wind properly, the back section of the ornament should have a larger area than the front section, but the front section must weight the same as the back.

The front section of animal weathervane points into the wind, indicating from which direction the wind is blowing. All our animal weathervanes are fully functional and precisely balanced
