|TORNARRATOS, sub., sing.,masc.
Me encontré hoy con esta palabra que designa un ingenio constructivo del horreo, y que sin el los ratones te abrasan las cosechas que tengas dentro***
Mouse turnabout, Mouse Fender, Mouse Returner. It's a very simple yet well thought out construction refinement of the hórreos. i think the most fitting translation is "mouse turnab0ut", other suggestions are welcome.
Anybody got an hórreo he/she
I found this hórreo in Taranes,he/shef is especially proud of? Otherwise i'll post my in-laws 300 year old hórreo. >I found this image od a perfect, sturdy model horru
You will see what prompts a mouse to turnh around and go back, knowing that inside that well ventilated contraption is a harvest of potatoes, apples, nuts, and other goodies.
