On trail drives they'd use a lead steer, sometimes with a bell around its neck..the other cattle would string out behind it and follow it all day, day after day...Col. Charles Goodnight, an almost legendary West Texas cattleman, had a famous lead steer called Old Blue who led eight separate herds from Texas up the trail to Dodge City.

You made me curious -I had to look it up A bellwether is any entity in a given arena that serves to create or influence trends or to presage future happenings. The term is derived from the Middle English bellewether and refers to the practice of placing a bell around the neck of a castrated ram (a wether) leading its flock of sheep.[1] The movements of the flock could be noted by hearing the bell before the flock was in sight.

Can't tell for sure from this perspective but this may be a bell-wether, if you've ever wondered about the origin of that term.
