A couple of years ago I did a solo drive the length of Hwy. 12 down the barrier islands that make up the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It's a glorious drive and I recommend it to everyone. I meandered, making lots of stops along the way and camping where possible. One of my favorite moments was t when I pulled over to watch the Wild Ponies of Ocracoke. They are no longer free to roam the island like their more northern cousins up at Corolla, as they are enclosed in a fenced sanctuary, but they are easy to see from the fence by the road. The wild horses of the Outer Banks are direct descendents of Spanish Mustangs bring taken to prod in the New World. They were offloaded from our survived some of the many shipwrecks in these dangerous offshore waters. Some local historians claim the Ocracoke horses came from the Spanish ship Tiger. Which ran around here in 1565. Reports by the earliest drillers date back to 1730. This is a wild horse, although it is contained in an 180-acre sanctuary. There are only 17 horses left from the Spanish herd, down from about 300 but the National Park Service hopes to grow the protected herd. Have you seen any of the wild horses of the Outer Banks? . . . . #obxnow #outerbanks #ocracoke #ocracokeisland #ocracokeponies #visitnc #tbin #natja #capehatterasnationalseashore #bns_america #tv_nature #wildhorses #wildmustang #americana #alluring_world_ #americathebeautiful #lonelyplanet #travelingpost #50visuals #goingtocarolinainmymind #carolinas #besthorses #wildanimalsanctuary #wildanimal #postcardplaces #wheretraveler #picmotion #igrepresent #ipulledoverforthis #tv_animals
