Where the Road Ends

Record #:
Spanish mustangs have roamed the dunes around Corolla for five hundred years. As late as 1920, there were 5,000 of them on the northern Outer Banks, but the population had dwindled to 113 by 2010 on the twelve mile strip of sand north of Corolla. As the beach population and summer tourism increases, the horses are pushed into a tighter, smaller habitat. Graff describes the work of Wesley Stallings, who is in his third year as manager of Corolla's famous wild horses.
