It's Friday already but I am going to hope that Good Fences is still up and running. You ought to check that link out. Lots of fascinating fences for you to see.
My fences come from a tour of the Wild Horses in Corova, North Carolina that I took recently.
We drove along the beach for many miles ....
This is an old Coast Guard Station. Used by a realty company now but still maintains it's charm.
The wild horses have free range and ignore the fences surrounding the beach houses. Only 1/3 of the land is public with 2/3s privately owned, yet the horses really own it all!
Aren't they beautiful. These horses have been in this area for about 500 years. Well, not these specific horses but the off-spring of the originals continue to live here and are protected by the Corolla Wild Horse Fund.
These horses accessed this yard by scooting past a protective wire 'gate'. They are allowed to do that, even get underneath any house that sits on stilts above the sand.
Only the fence post remain in this yard. Guess the people gave up trying to keep this mule from breaking through. I believe the guide said that this was the only mule here, left by someone who had brought in mules. It's not part of the original horse group.
It was a fun trip and one I thoroughly enjoyed. How often is it that we get to see wild horses? I was a bit put-off by the houses. I thought the horses would be out in the wild. And, some were. Later on I will post some more pictures of the horses, those I took that didn't have fences in them.
