Mister Ed When Hurricane Florence hits, what will happen to North Carolina’s wild horses?

For many vacationers on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, a trip there is not complete without at least catching a glimpse of the majestic wild horses that roam the islands. As Hurricane Florence approaches, many are expressing concern about how the horses will fare during the powerful Category 4 storm.

Wildlife experts say they needn’t worry. Wild horses are believed to have first settled on the Outer Banks hundreds of years ago and have survived many powerful storms.

They've probably forgotten more storms than the tourists will ever know.

Our ponies had a warm, dry place to go at any time, but they never used it (well, in bad weather, we would put their hay in there, but once the hay was gone, they were back outside). Even in the worst snowstorm, they would just turn their backs to the wind and end up matted with snow and ice.
