Another Weekend, Another Tour

Motor Man’s Wild Horse Tours made another excursion last weekend. Friends of ours were on vacation at the Outer Banks and wanted to see the horses. We were happy to oblige.

We were too late for the sunrise, but that was okay. It was a cloudy morning, so the sun was late making its appearance.

Within a few minutes, we spotted a horse on the dunes. Look closely, do you see the second one?

I believe this one recognized Motor Man. “So, I hear you know a little something about horsepower…?”

On many of the side roads, there are permanent “mud puddles”, varying in size. All but a few of them are small enough that we can drive through them in our Jeep. But the day before our last trip, there had been heavy rain in the area, and some of the puddles resembled small ponds.

“Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful.”

And then, what we’d been waiting for: horses on the beach.

Of course, we had to have a picture with them.

Bye! See ya next time.

Unbelievably, we counted 57 horses on this trip. It’s going to be difficult to break that record.

  1. Wild Horse Tours strikes again! No doubt those horses DO recognize you and Motor Man at this point since you are definitely “frequent flyers” down at the beach! Great photos.

  2. Just beautiful, Dianna! I have some photos of the trip we took right after the storm in 2006 – high water everywhere! I haven’t been back on the beach there for a long time – we don’t have a beach vehicle, so we have to go over by boat and we just haven’t taken the time (except for Dan’s trip just before his heart attack!). He got some great shots of the horses on the property where he was staying…they are so much fun to watch!

  3. That’s an awesome record! Hard to beat that for sure!

  4. So please just let me understand this — these are WILD horses, right? Yet you get very close to them, and they even come up to the Jeep, and they let tourists pose near them, even while they remain lying down… Hmmmm… I.m beginning to think you are pulling the wool over our eyes, Dianna. They are gorgeous!

  5. It really is magical! And amazing that they let you pose with them! That’s a framer!

  6. Guess the horses are confident no one will hurt them. 57 is a LOT!

  7. such an unusual site to seeing horses roaming freely. it always makes my heart smile, they are beautiful!!

  8. Lots of good Kodak Moments there!

  9. Just beautiful! That is a lot of horses….I think I would be sort of afraid.

  10. Thanks for taking us on another Wild Horse tour! That first photo is awesome! The horses are pretty tame to let you and MM get that close.

  12. 57!! I’m predicting 62 on the next excursion! LOVE the caption about horsepower!! – the perfect quote for that pic … 😉

  13. LOVE. Horses are soooo beautiful, and even more so in their own element. What a treasured trip to see that many! (P.S. I now have the Rolling Stones song “Wild Horses” in my head!)

  14. Your photos of these amazing animals are thrilling to say the least. What a great picture of you and your hubby next to the three beauties on the beach! Thank for sharing with us
