In 1933, the Italian inventor Signor D.G. Alzetta invented a functional mechanical horse he called "The Iron Dobbin."
This machine was made out of steel pipes and a gasoline engine.
How cool is this thing?
The Iron Dobbin trots on legs, just like a real horse.
It was designed with a 5 horsepower motor to carry a person and pull lightweight farm equipment.
Signor said, "Wheels were the invention or afterthought of men."
I would love to see this thing in action!
