Assateague Island Maryland: A New Baby Foal Born
The name is N2BHS-M, the eleventh foal born to Carol’s Girl, N2BHS.
Carol’s Girl has produced three colts and eight fillies. She is the only mare that has not responded to the contraceptive vaccine, having now foaled 11 times. Also, it is rare for a mare to live this long, having foaled so many times. Carol’s Girl is 20 years old.
(Pictured) Me with maybe one of Carol’s Girl’s “offsprings”. See the new “baby” on Assateague’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/AssateagueNPS
Assateague National Seashore’s local folklore, says the Assateague horses are survivors of a shipwreck off the Virginia coast.
