After 12 years of work, Xiancheng Dong, a farmer in Huang county, Henan province, is finally living the dream in his carriage with its own ‘iron horse.’ Dong presented the horse on the streets of Henan on Friday. The homemade steed is 1.2 meters (3.93 feet) tall and 1.7 meters (5.57 feet) long, and weighs just over 100kg (220 pounds). The horse is followed by a 3.5-meter-long (11.48 feet) and two-meter-high (6.56 feet) carriage. Dong can control the mechanical horse’s speed and direction inside the carriage.
