Hurdle: The original meaning for hurdle (and one still used in England) is a portable section of fencing for constructing temporary pens for livestock, especially sheep.
The hut was constructed of three sheep hurdles bound together with rope, and with an assortment of broken planks nailed together to form a kind of roof which glistened green with slime.
