LINCOLN, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — One of Massachusetts' strangest landmarks was vandalized earlier this week.

WBZ's Matt Shearer stopped by Ponyhenge, a field covered in hobby horses and various rideable plastic horses in Lincoln, to see the scene of the crime.

For the first time in Ponyhenge history, several of the plastic horses were smashed. Jim Pingeon owns the property and was saddened to find five horses smashed in the pasture this week.

Pingeon says the field of horses draws in hundreds of visitors each week from all over the world.

"They come all day long every day," Pingeon told WBZ's Matt Shearer.

He said up until this point the visitors have all been very respectful of the unusual landmark.

"I felt dismayed and annoyed and also grateful that that's never happened before and probably won't happen again," he said.

Pingeon said he believes the culprit used a hammer to vandalize the horses.

While he was saddened to find the horses dismembered, he says he hopes the vandals find a way to deal with their anger and find peace within themselves.
