A nodding donkey (also called pump jack,oil horse, donkey pumper, pumping unit, horsehead pump, rocking horse, beam pump, dinosaur, sucker rod pump (SRP), grasshopper pump, Big Texan, thirsty bird, or jack pump) is the overground drive for a reciprocating piston pump in an oil well.

Here is a typical example with a bit of a rain cloud behind it.
