My regular readers (thank you!) know how dear to my heart the wild horses of the Outer Banks are.
Yesterday, my neighbor shared a link on her Facebook page to this post on the Corolla Wild Horse Fund page. And I wanted to share it with all of you:
“We were deeply touched by a request from (I’m withholding his name) of Palm Beach, Fla. to name a wild filly after Jessoca* Rekos who was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. We are honored to do so and hope that this spirit horse, running wild and free on the Outer Banks, is of some small comfort to the Rekos Family….”
Although we’ve driven out on the beach a few times this winter, we haven’t seen many horses on any of those trips. Perhaps they spend more time in the thick underbrush during the cold weather. I’m anxiously awaiting springtime, so we can begin seeing them all again.
I can promise you that I’ll be watching especially for the filly, Jessica.
