      They actually used to roam free in the more populated areas. People kept hitting them so they rounded them up and put them in a remote portion of the northern beach near the border with Virginia that is only accessible via a 4WD vehicle. They still get hit but are heavily protected. There are tours that shuttle people up the beach in converted H1 hummers just to see them.

      Yes. Corolla. We've been going since 1990. The horses have been moved to the 4WD area since so many were getting killed.

      Common to see them in the yard at my wife's aunt and late uncle's house.

      There are others on the east coast, too.

      https://www.nps.gov/calo/learn/nature/horse-faqs.htm

      Most well known are the Chincoteague horses of VA.

      http://www.chincoteague.com/ponies.html

      There's a good documentary on the Feather Fund and the Chincoteague ponies.

      https://www.featherfund.net/carollynns-story.html

      This is the show. My wife remembered the title …

      The other thing the article glosses over is that NC state Highway 12 is on the beach there.
      Corova can only be accessed by driving up the beach.
      It's a legit road, and having been pulled over there I now know the posted speed limit is 35mph, but changes to 15mph if you're within 100 yards of another vehicle.

      Years and years ago, in the late '60s, I took a California girl to Assateague Island, just south of Ocean City, Maryland, to do a little gentle surfing and to enjoy the solitude, heh heh... I had just set up the tent and was setting up some stuff inside when she screamed "there's a [fornicating] horse on the [fornicating] beach!" and I had to calmly explain to her that there are bunches of them roaming around and not to bother them, and they won't bother you. It's nothing new on the eastern seaboard...

      They're all over the place at the campgrounds, too. They know there's a good chance someone will leave food out or attempt to feed them (which is illegal.)

      First time I ever camped on the island woke up to one snorting at me at the flap of my tent. Every time we camp there we see them wandering around, all day and night. Worst is one night I stumbled out of the tent and to the bathroom and wandered right into a herd grazing on someone's bag of popcorn left out carelessly. My dogs usually alert us to a pony in the camp.

      The Assateague ponies are federally protected, too. Pretty sure the Outer Banks herd is as well. When I was a kid vacationing with my family in Corolla it was not uncommon to wake up to a giant pile of horse crap on your driveway.

      Who the **** are you kidding, we would both run out of energy 30 seconds into fighting. Give up, realise it is stupid and go grab a couple Molsons. Where you would see the light and we would then surf the local classifieds to source muuuuuhhhdd teeeehhhhyres for your Jeep.

      The only involvement my wife would have is picking our drunk asses up from the bar after and she would take us to get drunken poutines.

      I’ve thought about new tires, but lease.

      When I was much younger, I used to go crabbing under the bridge that connects Chincoteague and Assateague Islands and the horses would come up right behind me close enough for me to touch them.

      More than you'd think, though there are often restrictions, particularly for migratory bird nesting season.

      I'd post up some pictures I've taken of the horses at Assateague, but photobucket is being a bitch now.
