Wild Ponies

Approximately 300 years ago, a Spanish galleon wrecked off of a small island of the American East Coast.

Horses swam to shore and have since adapted to life on the Island.

Today, more than 2000 wild ponies roam free among the white sand dunes.

The good news is you can visit them as I did. Simply go to Maryland (10 to 12 hours drive from Montreal). The island is Assateague, one of the 10 best American State Parks, according to National Geographic.

It is well worth the drive.

Thanks to Burt for sharing the secret with me.
