While we were on vacation in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, the only thing I really wanted to do was go see the wild horses.
We stopped at the visitors center and they told us you don't always get to see them because they aren't always there. I wanted to take my chances so off we went
The Wild Horses of Carolla is one of the BEST attractions of the Outer Banks. They roam freely on the beach.
When we got to the spot that the Wild Horses frequent, I was overjoyed to see the Horses were out and about.
How fun to see these creatures who have survived for years without help from humans
We also found out we could drive on the beach to look for more horses. We actually drove right down the beach.
I tried to get a picture of the water and the other vehicles driving on the beach.
You need a 4WD for this feat. Lucky for us we had our truck.
We actually seen more horses right off on the side of the beach so I had to stop and take more pictures.
It is illegal to come within 50 feet of the horses so we didn't want to get super close. They seem very take but if a stallion feels you are a threat to his harem, he may attack.
I would have loved to stay longer and watch the horses all day long, but we had things to do, places to go and people to see.
