The National Park Service is welcoming another new Assateague wild horse into the herd. Late Friday afternoon, June 21, N2BHS-AL (“Ms. Macky”) gave birth to a bay pinto colt.

Last month, N2BHS-A (“Gokey GoGo Bones”) foaled a chestnut filly, N2BHS-AR.

The new foal, N2BHS-ALR, and the Assateague wild horse band live in a busy developed area and campgrounds for most of the year. For this reason, the National Park Service is expressly reminding visitors to remain a minimum of a bus length (40 feet) away from the wild horses at all times.

Everything is new to a foal. N2BHS-ALR will learn how to interact with the environment from her mother and other members of the band
