Portsmouth Island Trip

A Trip To Portsmouth Island, North Carolina

The Ocracoke Ponies
The Ocracoke Ponies
Almost immediately after arriving in Ocracoke, you pass a bunch of local horses. They used to be wild but too many were getting hit by cars, so they're fenced up now and tended by the Park Service. Over the centuries they've drifted a bit from the standard model for horses, which is why the chestnut one here seems a bit oddly-proportioned compared to most horses you see.
