Ponyhenge: A 'Mane' Attraction in Lincoln, Mass.

England has Stonehenge, an iconic prehistoric stone circle that helped people keep track of days, weeks and months .

Big deal.

We have Ponyhenge in Lincoln, Mass.

As a "mane" attraction in Lincoln, Mass., Ponyhenge resides on wide open land filled with plastic and metal rocking horses, ponies and other equidae-related toys. It's unclear how the first lone hobby horse was placed but more horses began showing up at the rural site about 15 miles west of Boston. Today, it looks like a close-knit community with the population of some remotes northern New Hampshire towns.

Ponyhenge in Lincoln, MA
Close-knit community of misfit horse toys that have happily found a home.

The occasional rearranging of horses, the anonymity of those donating and the growing number of these childhood toys help make this attraction simultaneously mysterious, relevant and highly appealing.

Call it a "whinny-whinny" situation for the land owners, donators and visitors. So stop "stalling" and come see this one-of-a-kind sight!

Ponyhenge is located off Route 117, about a half mile on the right on Old Sudbury Rd. Open to the public, but please be respectful of the privately-owned land.
