First Foal Found: Outer Banks wild horse herd welcomes first filly of the year
Spring brings new life, in more ways than one!
In a Facebook post, the Corolla Wild Horse Fund stated that the year’s first baby was born on the northern beaches of Outer Banks, North Carolina.
The new addition to the wild horse herd is named Dove. “The filly... was born in the last week and appears to be thriving. Her mother is in excellent condition too,” the Facebook post read.
As tourist and visitors begin their beach plans, the Corolla Wild Horse Fund emphasized the need to keep your distance. “Our herd count is less than 100 right now; we cannot afford to lose horses due to human-caused problems. They face so many challenges to their survival that are beyond our control... so please do not make things even more difficult by not following the rules and behaving disrespectfully.”
