Corolla Wild Horses

Yesterday morning we all headed out on a Corolla Wild Horse tour with Back Country Safari.  We piled into some open air trucks and we were off down the beach in search of the horses.  Click here to read the history on the wild horses.

There is 10,000 acres where the horses are allowed to roam now.  It is pretty neat to drive through all of the dunes and neighborhoods in north Corolla.  There are no roads, only sand.  Good thing we were in a big 4 wheel drive truck!

We saw about a dozen horses (there are only about 150).  We saw a couple of babies and a couple of very pregnant mamas-to-be.  Can you imagine staying in one of these houses and waking up to wild horses out your window.  Crazy. It was such a neat trip and a must if you visit the northern Outer Banks!

We have seen a lot of these sculptures on the beach this week.  People have used the leftover debris from Hurricane Irene to create art!
