Cedar Island Herd to be Rebuilt

The remnant, following losses attributed to hurricane Dorian, includes thirteen mares and eight geldings—a non-starter for those unfamiliar with horses.

But one of the herd managers has a stallion in reserve, and he will be allowed to rejoin the herd in the spring, according to a story posted earlier today by the Carteret County News-Times of Morehead City, NC.

Although two other stallions are available in South Carolina, questions of inbreeding and genetic viability remain.

The Cedar Island herd was established about 25 years ago as a ‘backup’ for the herd at Shackleford Banks.
