And The Answer Is….

Yesterday, I left you with a cliffhanger: did we see any horses during our weekend trip to the Outer Banks?

Why, yes, as a matter of fact, we saw a total of 39 horses.  The first one was standing in front of the restored Coast Guard Station. This picture was taken from the beach.

Traveling around to the back of the property, we saw this family.

Just look at this little one. (I’ve sent a message to Corolla Wild Horse Fund, asking its name, but as of yet, haven’t gotten a response. When I do, I’ll share.)

Then, this one, who brought to mind the book Black Beauty.

And, finally, what I always hope for: horses on the beach.

During some of our winter trips, we didn’t see any horses, on others, we’d see a few. I guess the horses are like us humans: they much prefer the beach during the summer.
