Wild Horses


Wild Horses

Corolla wild horses are hardy.

They have adapted on the Outer Banks

To winter by living in the wild

They are able to do so,

By growing thicker coats,

And eating a modified diet

They are able to survive the cold.


Cold is dangerous for horses.

But these wild ponies

Have lived through snowstorms,

And whipping frigid winds

They know how to adapt

Because of centuries living in the wild


These wild horses spend their time

On the banks in the maritime forests

By fresh water marshes

With a leader of the pack

This stallion leads the mares

Through the winter months

By eating dry winter grass

And stalks of sea oats on the dunes.
