This 32-foot long horse and carriage was designed by Chris McConnell. It’s different than most “world’s largests” out there because this is hand-crafted wood, while a lot of the others are made of fiberglass.

According to a sign attached to this tourist attraction, the giant wooden horse and buggy is made up of 2,300 board feet of lumber and 30 pounds of screws. The wheel size is 7 feet tall and the horse is 29.25 hands tall! Actually, I’m not really sure what a “hand” measurement is, or whose hands they use, or if the Amish have different sized hands then the rest of us, but it was a mighty tall horse!
