The Wild Horses Of The Outer Banks Are Simply Amazing

Isolated from man for almost four-hundred years, the wild horses(or ponies) of the Outer Banks have made their home here in North Carolina. Mostly descendants of Spanish Mustangs left by explorers, these rugged pioneers survived the harsh landscape and thrived on their natural habitat. With the increase in population and tourism, the horses have located to more remote parts of Corolla Beach, Shackleford, Ockracoke, and Beaufort.

This treasure of our state is just one of the many ways North Carolina is so unique…and maybe I also just wanted to put up these GORGEOUS pictures. But, it seems these wild horses aren’t so different from us after all?
