Welcome to Ponyhenge—a Massive, Mysterious, and Ever-Growing Graveyard for Rocking Horses in Massachusetts
By Michele Debczak (Mental Floss)
Ponyhenge is significantly less ancient than the English rock monument from which its name derives. The roadside rocking horse graveyard in Lincoln, Massachusetts, only dates back 12 or so years. But like Stonehenge, its creation and purpose are shrouded in mystery.
According to Atlas Obscura, toy horses started appearing in the small New England town in 2010. First there was one: a toy horse discarded in a field on the side of Old Sudbury Road. Jimmy Pingeon and Elizabeth Graver, who own the pasture and live next door, told the Boston Globe in 2015 that the prop was leftover from a Headless Horseman display they had set up for Halloween. They thought a kid might find it and play it with, but they never imagined the horse would inspire a local landmark that lives on more than a decade later.
