Five new foals, five new names needed at Assateague Island
The four of five foals born to Assateague horses this year need a bit of help, in that little N2BHS-O, N2BHS-AO, N2BHS-AIO and N10T-JO require more suitable, as in pronounceable, names.
The exception, N6BMT-FO’s naming rights, was raffled off, with ticket sales ending on Halloween. The raffle was drawn on Tuesday and a name has been submitted by the winner, but the suggested name is pending National Seashore Superintendent Debbie Darden’s approval.
Only 500 tickets were sold at $20 apiece for the naming rights raffle.
The other four foals naming rights’ will be auctioned off via eBay, and can be located on that site by searching for the seller “AIA2009.”
The seller is the Assateague Island Alliance, the nonprofit group that raises money to benefit the National Seashore.
N2BHS-O’s auction is live now, and will last until Nov. 11, with the high bidder securing the naming rights to the foal. N2BHS-O is an unmarked sorrel colt born April 18.
