Watch this inspiring slide show of the Corolla Wild Horses in their natural habitat, set to the music of “The Voice” by Celtic Woman.
The Corolla Wild Horse Fund, with generous support of Wild Horse Winery and Vineyards, are working together to save the heritage horses of the Outer Banks. When you enjoy Wild Horse Wine, you are helping the Fund meet its mission of protecting, preserving, and conserving, the critically endangered wild Colonial Spanish Mustang. Help us keep them “wild and free.”
Meet Thunder, a beautiful bay Colonial Spanish Mustang gelding, removed from the wild herd in January of 2012. Thunder is a handsome three year old born May, 2009. He stands at about 12.5 hands and is still growing. From January 30 to May 9, 2012, Thunder was enrolled in the equine technology program at Martin Community College. He is now started under saddle and has excellent ground manners. As of September 4, 2012, Thunder will be living in West Virginia with his new forever family.
This is Ash, a two year old black Colonial Spanish Mustang Gelding, removed from the herd in January, 2012. He is an absolutely gorgeous horse with classic Spanish carriage, standing at 12 hands. Ash is currently being trained by our herd manager, Wesley Stallings, and is progressing very quickly. He now has learned to stand tied and for the farrier, load into the trailer, lead and lunge, bath, and much more! Ash is extremely gentle and loves attention.
Update: Ash has been adopted and now lives in Chesapeake, VA along with Solomon.

Bonita has been very happily adopted by Tami Thurston of Tarboro, NC the director of the Equine Technology program at Martin Community College and owner of Thurston Quarter Horses. Bonita has finished her training in the equine program at Martin Community College and has moved to her new home. She has made an excellent recovery from the injury she suffered in the wild before she was rescued and we eagerly look forward to following her progress as she finishes training in her new home.
We are happy to announce that Stormy has been adopted by Van and Donna Overdorff of Indiana, PA! He is going to an excellent home. Van and Donna are also the proud owners of another of our Colonial Spanish Mustangs, Curly, adopted in 2009.
We would also like to thank Nancy Talley for her time and resources in fostering Stormy until he could find his new home!
Kelly and Joshua Roche are now the proud owners of Edward Teach! Edward Teach was rescued from the wild herd after suffering a severe injury to the right side of his neck. He was nursed back to health with the excellent care of the Dominion Equine Hospital and Steve Edwards of Mill Swamp Indian Horses. He has made a wonderful recovery and we are so happy that he has found such wonderful adopters! Good luck Kelly and Joshua!
