Two More Foals Spotted on Currituck Outer Banks

A report by OBX Today says a colt and filly have been added to the herd, with breeding patterns controlled by the local ‘advocacy’ group.

Between four and six foals are born each year, according to the story, roughly equal to the expected number of deaths.

A herd of 100 would lose five horses every year, assuming a 5% death rate.

Left to themselves, a wild horse herd will usually grow.
