If you’ve ever read the book Misty of Chincoteague, you’ll want to make your way to Assateague island to visit the Chincoteague ponies. They are the cutest things ever. I’ve always wondered how the herds got there in the first place. Stories suggest that they arrived there by a spanish shipwreck in the mid 1700’s, and the ponies you see today are their descendants. How cool is that? The trip is a must!

From the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Viggo Mortensen bonds with his four legged cast member Uraeus. They played the characters Aragorn and his horse Brego. After getting to know each other so well, Viggo bought Uraeus at the end of filming. He even bought a horse for one of the films stunt doubles, as a gift! How awesome is that?! Kudos Viggo!
