Shackleford Banks Wild Mustangs

I made a trip over to Shackleford Banks yesterday morning to photograph a few of the wild mustangs. A quick thanks to Calico Jack’s ferry service for the ride over and back. Here’s a few shots from the morning.

Barrier island Shackleford Banks is home to a herd of wild Spanish mustangs.

Wild horses have been living on the east coast for nearly 500 years! The ancestors of these horses were left behind by early European explorers.

At one time all of Core Banks held herds of wild horses.

Several ferry services depart Harkers Island for Shackleford Banks.
