Storms a Comin’ to Assateague

Black And White Photography, Laurie, Photography

Assateague Island is a 37 mile long island along the coasts of Maryland and Virginia known for it’s wild horses.  We saw a few the day that we visited but they were far in the distance.

“The “wild” horses on Assateague are actually feral animals, meaning that they are descendants of domestic animals that have reverted to a wild state. Horses tough enough to survive the scorching heat, abundant mosquitoes, stormy weather and poor quality food found on this remote, windswept barrier island have formed a unique wild horse society”.
