Penobsquis, New Brunswick, Canada: Blowhard the Bony Horse

Buck-toothed, bone white, and cadaverous, larger-than-life Blowhard was the odd mascot of a now-defunct park named Animaland. Built in 1967 by Winston Bronnum, creator of many other Canadian roadside statues.

Blowhard the Bony Horse

[Joe Gallant, 11/20/2013]

Animaland was a theme park along Hwy 114 that featured large concrete animal sculptures, including a Duck Slide, fighting moose, and dueling forest bears (if we base all of our knowledge on old postcards). The 1960s-era park has since closed down, though the skeletal "Blowhard" horse and entrance sign remain visible.
