These wild horses represent the Virginia herd owned and managed by the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company.
They live in the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge on Assateague Island, Virginia.
They've made Chincoteague famous with the tradition of "pony penning" that takes place once a year to keep the herd size managable to protect the island resources.
If you are ever in Chincoteague, you must take a boat tour to see the horses. I loved the tour I was on!
We handcraft this replica in 3/4" thick wood in Ohio.
Look for Casper, our black cat mascot, hiding in the grass waiting for the next ride off the island.
