Description: Patent for an animal-poke that is "placed over the animal's neck and provided with spurs, whereby the animal is pricked when he attempts to pass a fence or other barrier" (lines 9-12). This invention doesn't prick the animal while it is grazing and is more comfortable to wear than similar animal-pokes.
