BERLIN – The herd of wild horses at Assateague Island grew by one this week when the third foal expected this year was born.
The mare Gokey Go Bones (identified as N2BHS-A) gave birth to a pinto colt Monday. The foal was born out on the marsh near the curves on Bayberry Drive at Assateague Island National Seashore.
Officials from Assateague Island Alliance (AIA), the friends group that supports the national park, says one more foal is expected in the near future.
“Charmed is still pregnant and a fourth foal is expected soon,” said Ashlie Kozlowski, AIA Outreach Coordinator. “She is in the back country and not encountered as often as the horses in the developed zone so it can be any day now.”
