- Dialectal forms of hamble.
- n. A shed of about 150 feet area opening into a small courtyard, employed in Great Britain for feeding cattle singly or at most by twos.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The cattle intended for stall-feeding should be removed (if out) from the field in October, and put into the house, or court, or crib, or hammel, as the case may be.
I'm pretty sure hammel could lower his ERA by more than 0.11 tomorrow … left handed.
