Wild horses of the Outer Banks are safe after Hurricane Florence

OUTER BANKS, NC - The wild horses that roam many parts of North Carolina's Outer Banks made it safely through the severe weather caused by Hurricane Florence this week. 

According to a Facebook post from the Cape Hatteras National Seashore on Saturday, all of the ponies that call Ocracoke Island home were safe and sound. Even their pony pen stood undamaged. 



A similar sight was seen a little over 100 miles north of Ocracoke in the towns of Carova and Corolla.

The Corolla Wild Horse Fund Facebook page posted pictures of the wild ponies on Friday, stating the horses were out "doing their normal thing - grazing, socializing, and wondering what us crazy humans are all worked up over."
