We elaborate on a novel model of N=4 supersymmetric mechanics with extra spin variables. A dynamical linear (1,4,3) multiplet is coupled to a "semi-dynamical" linear (3,4,1) multiplet representing spin degrees of freedom in a Wess-Zumino action. The unique coupling of these two multiplets relates the dynamical bosonic variable to an arbitrary harmonic function of the SU(2) triplet of spin variables. As we prove at the classical and quantum level, N=4 supersymmetry is equivalent to the Nahm

We treat in detail the one- and two-monopole as well as some special multi-monopole configurations. While one monopole exhibits superconformal OSp(4|2) symmetry and was worked out previously, only N=4, d=1 Poincare supersymmetry survives for multi-monopole configurations.
