Just Horsin’ Around

Motor Man and I took advantage of a beautiful spring day recently and headed to the Outer Banks.

The past few times we’ve been, we haven’t seen many horses, but this time we saw 14, including this one enjoying a stroll along the beach.

A few were hanging out on the dunes.

And this one was channeling a Friesian.

Tis spring, so the young bucks are a bit restless; we witnessed much whinnying, rearing up and running.

And this one was apparently looking to check into his accommodations for the week.

  8. Great pictures as always! The horse ‘checking in’ at the house cracked me up. But what really got my attention was the wannabe Friesian — Black Beauty for sure!

  9. Wonder if he rang the door bell?

  10. So beautiful photos! Are these horses wild living on their own?

    • Hi! Yes, there is a non-profit group that oversees them, and steps in if there’s a serious illness or injury. In that case, the horse is removed from the herd and taken to a rescue facility. If possible, it is nursed back to health and adopted. Once removed from the herd, a horse is never returned for fear of bringing in disease, etc, and because it has become accustomed to human contact. Their web-site must be down at this time, but try http://www.corollawildhorses.com later, and you’ll be able to read more. Thanks for reading and the comment!
