Ponies Shrug off Hurricane’s Assault
Sources close to SFTHH have indicated that the world famous Chincoteague wild horses survived the storm’s onslaught unscathed.
The horses, made famous by the novel “Misty of Chincoteague”, were allowed to reach higher ground in advance of the storm and members of the local pony committee put out additional hay to sustain the horses during the storm’s fury.
A spokesperson for the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company said that when volunteers went out to check on the horses Sunday morning the comment was made that the horses “looked fantastic and as docile as usual, just as if nothing had happened.”
