Visit With a Spanish Mustang

These are the most amazing horses you will find on the East Coast. The Outer Banks was their home until development and people that had little respect for the natural and cultural resources of this area tried to have them removed. Today, they finally have the recognition they deserve and survive in their natural environment in Corolla on the northern Outer Banks. This is a special treat to have one living at the Historic Island Farm on Roanoke Island. Make your plans today to get intoduced to Grace and Rainbow! Bebe Woody, The White Doe Inn.
