Mysterious barn find

This was in with some dairy farm items, but have no idea if it is even farm related.  The hose is insulated, steam related?  Any ideas?

You are correct.  Horse and sheep clipper.  Never would have guessed that!  Thanks

Same as with all those little hand-crank grinders ;-)

I've seen posts from people who claim they can crank with one hand and hold the tool to the wheel with the other - talented folks.
