Assateague Island Welcomes New Foal

A pinto filly was born to first-time mom Susi Sole last week, according to a report posted today by the Maryland Coast Dispatch.  The arrival brings the wild horse population on the barrier island to eighty.

Fertility control efforts were suspended recently, because of the shrinking size of the herd.

The distribution of males and females on the island is now wildly skewed, based on a census from last November, a result that should be investigated.
