One of my favorite parts of the Outer Bansk is staying in the Corolla 4x4 area where there are wild horses.
They are mustang ponies descended from ones brought to the US by Spanish explorers over 500 years ago.
They like to stand around and stare at us sitting in our beach chairs.
The Corolla Wild Horse Fund helps protect and conserve the horses.
Face off! The horses like to come down to the water when it gets really hot to be cooled off by the breeze.
Here they are sneaking up on my dad.
They strolled right past us on their way down the beach. I think I need to see the movie "“Nights in Rodanthe”, because I read the OBX wild horses are in it!
