Wild Horses on North Carolina Tidal Flats Near Beaufort
Photograph - Photograph
Wild horses, descendants of the Spanish Mustangs used by early explorers, run and frolic along tidal flats of Carrot Island near Beaufort, North Carolina. For nearly 500 years horses have lived wild and free along the North American east coast. Today, only a limited number of barrier islands still hold these magnificent animals. Within the borders of NC there are five separate herds. These wild horses can be found at Corolla, Okracoke, Shackleford Banks, the Rachel Carson Reserve and Cedar Island.
