Keys to the Past Web Site
A farm building built around central machinery, which allows the walking of a horse or pony around the machinery to turn wheels by being attached through a harness. The machinery is called a gin. Such buildings are usually circular or angled. They possess sharply pitched roofs to allow the horse and its guider to stay dry. The gin being turned is underneath the point of the roof - the rotating of the horse being turned into a horizontally turning shaft that could be used elsewhere on the farm.
