On Oct. 3, the Corolla Wild Horse Fund (CWHF) reported this news about ceramics artist Michael Middleton, who incorporates hair from the wild horses into his work.
“How cool is this? One of Mike’s pots made from native Currituck clay and our dear Captain’s hair will be on display at the International Museum of the Horse in Lexington, KY. A great honor for a special horse and a talented artist. Also very exciting to have Currituck and the Banker horses represented in the museum!
You can purchase your own pot from Mike: https://michaelmiddletonceramics.com He is a big supporter of CWHF and donates part of the proceeds back to the horses.” Captain, one of the truly special and beloved Corolla wild horses, was euthanized last year. He was estimated to have been in his late-to-mid 20’s.
