I have found an inventory of a deakin  in 1699 and the second one is 3 twintars. this is between 4 cowes and one mare. I have looked on the internet but not found it, obviously an animal. Not come across it, any ideas. Barry

I`ve seen this written twinter - usually a beast that has lived through 2 winters, usuallly bovine.
