    Probably had to do with holding livestock for milking. the cross pieces would be pushed through a link or ring and when crossways, wouldn't come out until it was pushed through and rotated back straight.

    Chains with toggles were used for many things.
    It is best as one grows older to strip oneself of possessions, to shed oneself downward like a tree, to be almost wholly earth before one dies.

    Was it found in an area where logging was done in the past?

    I was incorrect; got to thinking about it, and it could very well be
    a chain used in logging.

    Couple of examples I found on the interweb:

    I don't know if chokers were always made of cable, so
    maybe it was used as a chain choker?

    They were used in harnessing a mule or draft horse. Those ends "button" into slits in the leather parts of a harness.

    Ill agree , as I have dug a few & was told ' In Help Id ' that my pieces were chokers .
    FWIW
    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.
