The Hoofprints Guide to the Wild Horses of Assateague

The free-roaming horses of Assateague have survived on this ever-changing barrier island for hundreds of years. Today, Assateague is a National Seashore, where natural resource conservation is prioritized and more than 2 million people a year visit . The clever, resilient horses have adapted well to the incursion of people into their home ranges, but the presence of horses on the island has created friction as factions argue for against their continued residence. A Abridged from Wild Horse Dilemma , many  B&W photos.

 The Hoofprints Guide to the Wild Horses of Chincoteague

The world-famous Chincoteague Ponies, stars of the silver screen and main attraction at the annual Pony Penning, are essential to the local economy and identity. But they run free only on the neighboring island of Assateague under the watch of an ambivalent federal agency, and bear little resemblance to their colonial forbears. What does the future hold for them? Abridged from Wild Horse Dilemma , many  B&W photos.

The Hoofprints Guide to the Wild Horses of Ocracoke Island, NC

Wild horses, once vital to the Outer Banks livestock industry, remained on Ocracoke after forces of “progress” had obliterated them elsewhere. Pony pennings lasted until the 1950s, and the world’s only mounted Boy Scout troop persisted until the 1960s. Reduced to a roadside attraction, the herd nearly died out. Recovery has been slow, and the prognosis is uncertain. Abridged from Wild Horse Dilemma , many  B&W photos.

The Hoofprints Guide to the Wild Horses of Shackleford Banks and Vicinity

Horses roamed the Outer Banks of North Carolina and much of the nearby mainland for centuries. Forces of development—and conservation—restricted the southern herds to Shackleford Banks and a few neighboring islands, however, and official management in the 1990s nearly eradicated them. They have partially recovered, but their situation remains precarious.   Abridged from Wild Horse Dilemma , many  B&W photos.

 The Hoofprints Guide to the Wild Horses of Cumberland Island Cumberland Island was once a Spanish colony, but its wild horses are farther from the Colonial Spanish type than those of East Coast islands never settled by Spain.  The horses are very adaptable, but this subtropical paradise is especially challenging. Without renewed human intervention, their future is unclear. Can we ensure their well being without compromising their wildness? Abridged from Wild Horse Dilemma , many  B&W photos.
