Ponyhedge

Pony girl, ride, ride away
I knew you'd break my heart someday...

Some folks get the call to go
Some folks are bound to stay...


{Pony Girl -- Fun Home} 

In 2010, in a small pasture in Lincoln, Massachusetts, broken-down rocking horses began to appear. The small collection has been dubbed “Ponyhenge” and has become a place for people to deposit their old hobby horses for a new life in this peculiar art-ish display. 

Much like the real Stonehenge, no one knows the real story, but once one was left in the field more came. Their arrangement is changed from time to time apparently and a few even had knitted caps on on this chilly winter's day. 

Amazingly, no one takes them away – the arrangement only changes and grows. The family whose land Ponyhenge sits on loves the attraction. They told the Boston Globe in 2015, “There was something lovely about it being anonymous, and now every time we go away, another one appears.”

This may be one of the most amazing local sites I've seen. It was eery and beautiful. Sad and hopeful. A must see in Lincoln for sure!

Oh so glad I caught this post. These were wonderful. I loved photos #4 & #6 along with the one you did for 52 Frames. - I hope people continue to contribute to this display. I would like to have seen a close-up of the black/orange horse in photo #5. Maybe you could go back again and take more photos.
