The wild Mustangs of the Currituck Outer Banks are a main attraction! If you're lucky you may get to see some of these beautiful, majestic animals playing in the surf.
Each harem inhabit a territorial, ocean to sound strip of the northern banks that provide each family with sandy beaches, dunes filled with sea oats, grassy wetlands for drink, maritime forests for protection and marshy sound fronts. — at Swan Beach, NC. Photo by Swandipity
There are 24 to 25 "harems" or families in the Corolla Wild Horse herd. Each group consist of a stallion and one to four mares and maybe a yearling colt or filly. The horse in the distance is the stallion of this harem. — at Swan Beach, NC. Photo by Swandipity
The Corolla Wild Horses are believed to have roamed over the past four centuries on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. These horses are descendants of Spanish Mustangs brought here by early explorers. In 2010 the North Carolina General Assembly designated the Colonial Spanish Mustang as the official state horse. #Corolla_OBX #Outer_Banks #wild horses
