New Fans

Some friends of ours are in the Outer Banks on vacation this week. Yesterday, Motor Man and I introduced them to the beaches and horses of Carova.

There were too many in the group to all ride with us in our Tahoe, so some of our ‘horse tour’ guests followed us in two vehicles. Let’s just say that the sand was rather dicey in some areas, and a few of the mud holes were especially deep…… but everyone made it through. After some stressful moments (for some of us), everyone had a great time.

I was thankful the new horse fans were able to see one of this year’s babies. This is Sebastian.

One of our guests is a race engine customer of ours. He enjoyed the day, but, like Motor Man, this isn’t exactly HIS kind of horsepower.

The girls, however, were thrilled to see the wild horses. It was the first time on  the four-wheel-drive beach for everyone in the group.

We saw a total of 39 horses including three by the ocean:

Over the past several years, Motor Man and I have given several of our friends their first wild horse ‘tour’.  It’s fun to share our happy place….. treacherous sand and deep mud holes notwithstanding.

  1. We were recipients of a wonderful tour and absolutely loved it as you know. One of my fav vacation memories. So glad you were able to share with so many friends your horses!

  2. Ah ha! That answers the question I had for you in email this morning. Anyway, glad all turned out well and you had so much fun (and saw so many horses!).

  3. 39 horses!! You must have sent the call out “new visitors on the way, put on a show!”
    I remember my first time, I don’t think I blinked and my neck almost did a 360 looking for the horses!
    I love the sweet chesnut foal, and he is all legs and beauty.
    Lovely of you and JR to share an adventure so special.

  4. You and Motor Man are the BEST ambassadors and tour guides for the wild horses of Corolla as we discovered on our personal tour also. I know your guests were appreciative.

  5. Awesome! As you know, we’re still hoping to be able to go on one of your “tours” with you & MM. Sebastian is a cutie!

    Always good to be with friends and show them something they have not seen before. Fun memories. Glad the horses helped you out.

  7. I would love to see that, especially the young one. Coincidently, I was scanning old photos and came across a group of photos from my wife and my first home together in 1999. We rented a small home on a large property and as part of the lease, we had to feed and water their 19 cows. We only lived there five months or so but we were there for the birth of a few babies. We didn’t actually see the births but I have photos taken shortly afterward of one of them.
