Abstract:
Getting to Portsmouth Island is a challenge but the journey is worth the effort, according to the author. Among the perks Portsmouth has to offer is an environment that may make one feel as if a trip has been taken back in time. Reason noted by Rumley for this feeling: Portsmouth’s population has dwindled to summer tourists and fishermen; the place hasn’t changed much since its Colonial beginnings.

Abstract:
The celebrated wild ponies of the Outer Banks are descendants of the Mustangs left behind by early explorers and colonists. More recently, they run wild in places like Shackleford Banks and are resilient from a diet of sea oats and marsh grass. Their centuries old appeal led to the Colonial Spanish Mustang becoming the official state horse in 2010.
