Outer Banks wild horses welcome baby number six

By KARI PUGH | May 11, 2021

The wild mustangs of the northern Outer Banks have yet another new addition — Bramble. The new baby is the sixth foal of the season for the herd of about 100 wild horses that roam north of Corolla.

“We aren’t 100% sure of the sex of this foal yet (we think it’s a filly…still need a closer look) but have chosen the name Bramble,” the Corolla Wild Horse Fund, which manages the herd, said in a Tuesday Facebook post. “He/she was born this morning and both baby and mom are in great shape.”

The foal’s mom is one of the mares that adopted Rosie a couple years ago when her mom died, “and we are so happy to see that she has a foal of her own now. She is an excellent aunt and mother,” the CWHF wrote.

How did these horses get here?

The Mission of the Corolla Wild Horse Fund is to protect, conserve, and responsibly manage the herd of wild Colonial Spanish Mustangs roaming freely on the northernmost Currituck Outer Banks, and to promote the continued preservation of this land as a permanent sanctuary for horses designated as the State Horse and defined as a cultural treasure by the state of North Carolina.
