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!
