Wild Horse Adoption

Shadow of a Wild Horse of Corolla

          Please read the following excerpts from a letter I received from the Corolla Wild Horse Fund (CWHF) upon my adoption of a Wild Horse of Corolla:

          "Thank you for your support of the Corolla Wild Horse Fund (CWHF), an organization of the Outer Banks Conservationists, Inc. The mission of the CWHF is to allow Spanish mustangs on the Currituck banks to live freely in the wild and to educate the public about the history of the herd.

          Your adoption and sponsorship comes at a particularly good time. The wild horse management agreement with Currituck County has recently been expanded to include a number of new responsibilities for CWHF. Projects such as a census and health inspection, educational materials and programs, a population control plan, fund raising and repair and maintenance of the fence and cattleguard will tax our limited budget more than ever."

Penny's Hill Herd

          This beautiful mare is among a herd of Wild Horses that lives north of the end of the paved road in Corolla, near a sand dune named Penny's Hill. On the sound side of Penny's Hill is a beautiful Maritime forest with trees for shelter, delicious salt marsh grasses, and plenty of fresh water. In the spring and summer, to the delight of tourists, the herd may wander onto the beach to escape flies or summer heat.
