Spring is Here!
The Corolla Wild Horses are celebrating the arrival of spring by trading their coarse winter coats for a sleeker, more beautiful and shiny appearance. They roll in the sand to groom themselves, and when they are finished, the transformation is amazing. Thanks to visiting Elon University student interns Travis and Katie, our Schoolhouse grounds look beautiful also with fresh flowers, fresh paint and a much needed cleanup! Come join us April 10th at Currituck Heritage Park for the annual Easter Eggstravaganza, which will take place from 1:00-3:00 on the grounds of the Whalehead Club. Kids' activities will include an Easter Egg hunt, photos with the Easter Bunny, and a visit from a real Colonial Spanish Mustang! Unlike the wild horses on the beach, you can pet this gentled horse while you find out more about saving this critically endangered breed. Then come see us at the Schoolhouse on Tuesday April 14th for horse painting! This wildly popular activity is for kids of all ages. Wooden horses can be painted for a nominal fee between the hours of 10:00 and 3:00. And last but not least check out our website for information on our 3rd Annual Photo Contest! Enter up to three photos for judging--winners are published in the Corolla Wild Horse Fund official calendar! Entry Forms and Rules are available online or at the Schoolhouse. All proceeds from activities benefit the Corolla Wild Horse Fund. For more info visit: www.corollawildhorses.org
