Bouncy Horse Gallop

Bouncy horses are in the middle of a corn field. Hard to find in tall corn, but worth it!

It's off US 24, on the south side, about 3 miles west of Fairbury, IL. About 20 feet back from the road, and invisible while driving when the corn is high. I dropped a pin and the address it gave is: 34851-35699 E 3100 North Rd, Chenoa, IL 61726. There is a partial car-sized pull off next to the unmarked entrance.

I found an abandoned orange baby pony at roadside on my stop today and introduced him to his new galloping family.

Oh how sweet.

Bouncy Horse Gallop

According to Dale Bowman of the Chicago Sun-Times, the Bouncy Horse Gallop began when a farmer set a carousel horse into the ground as a marker for a "breather tile line" (I'm not a farmer so I have no idea what that is). Other people started leaving other horses and the line grew, sometimes being decked out in the local high school football teams colors. I've been there twice and plan to go back.
