Sheep TreadmillsWritten by Tim Gorman
The term sheep treadmills refers nowadays to exercise devices designed to keep a farmer's sheep in good health. In 1990 inventor Victor Tribelhorn came up with concept of sheep treadmills for conditioning and exercising a large number of sheep at same time. The patent was published in 1992. With this device, sheep are arranged side by side on these sheep treadmills with their front legs on a stationary stand and their back legs on treadmill belt. The range of speed for these sheep treadmills is 14 to 22 inches for second.
Earlier sheep treadmills, however - those that existed in nineteenth century - were not about offering exercise to sheep. Instead, they were farming machines powered, in these pre-electricity days, by sheep and sometimes dogs or goats. Useful for threshing, these sheep treadmills were originally designed in 1834. For treadmills that required heftier weights to run them, horses provided power. Most treadmills, however, ran just fine powered by smaller farm animals.
