Upon arrival, we saw several of the wild ponies grazing happily nearby. There were lots of song bird flitting around. On the beach we found pretty shells. The beach was super-clean. We walked toward Ocean City- the view was great! There was an east wind...More
Traveled there hoping to get a glimpse of the ponies to no avail. Some of the ponies came down with the rare tropical disease - oomycete Pythium insidiosum that causes lesions that can cause amputations. They get it from the swampy water. Hoping that the...More

We brought my out of town sister and brother-in-law this summer (July) for their first visit to AI and they thoroughly enjoyed it and got to see at least a dozen of the wild horses just driving and walking along! We stopped at the Information...More
I guess it is neat to see wild horses wandering in the park, but the poor beasts have been so exposed to humans that they didn't seem wild to me. I think the horses have been desensitized to human encounters. We did see a mare...More
