Chincoteague Pony Auction Results (with Photos)

The auction of the Chincoteague pony foals is used for two purposes; first, to remove excess livestock from Assateague Island to prevent over-grazing and keep herd numbers within the mandated limit by the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge; and, second, to make money for the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company.  The majority of fire-fighters and our EMTs are volunteers - and we need to pay for equipment, training, and supplies.  The sales of the foals and the Fireman's Carnival are just two of many events that occur year-round to help fund our fire and medical stations.
   After I posted there would be nine Buy Back foals this year, folks were surprised to find out, on the morning of the auction, there would be ten.  The Pony Committee decided to also keep the first foal born this year, a chestnut pinto filly sired by Tornado's Legacy and out of the mare Anne Bonny.
    Here are the foals as they were presented for sale on Thursday, 27 July, and the prices they commanded.  This information was compiled by Cherie Miner and Darcy Cole of DSC Photography.  ** All of the second foal photos at the Auction was taken by Darcy Cole of DSC Photography.  Most, if not all, photos without a watermark or copyright are from Gina Aguilera's Facebook page "Chincoteague Pony Names."   Please give the owners of the photos full credit if you use them for any purpose.**
