Corolla wild horses are hardy.
They have adapted on the Outer Banks
To winter by living in the wild
They are able to do so,
By growing thicker coats,
And eating a modified diet
They are able to survive the cold.
Cold is dangerous for horses.
But these wild ponies
Have lived through snowstorms,
And whipping frigid winds
They know how to adapt
Because of centuries living in the wild
These wild horses spend their time
On the banks in the maritime forests
By fresh water marshes
With a leader of the pack
This stallion leads the mares
Through the winter months
By eating dry winter grass
And stalks of sea oats on the dunes.
