Hurricane Dorian Wild horses of the Outer Banks have a special trick to survive hurricanes With quickly approaching, and ride out the storm using a trick horses have used for centuries. They will under sturdy oak trees to shelter from the storm, said the Corolla Wild Horse Fund, which manages the herd and sends a similar reminder during major hurricanes due to the outpouring of concern for the horses. “Theyll likely ride out winds and rain as their ancestors did before them — in huddles, butts to the wind,” it added. And unlike human beings living in the Outer Banks, the wild horses are better equipped to handle a hurricane. Theyre already sensing a change in air pressure and are grouping up together. “Remember, theyve been doing this for 500 years!” the Fund said. The horses food, water and other supplies at the farm. They have extra hay and grain, and their troughs are filled with water. They also have ID tags braided into their manes, and the herd manager will ride out the storm at the farm with them, the Fund said. More than 1 million people in parts of South Carolina and North Carolina are under mandatory evacuation orders, forecasters said. Hurricane Dorians core is forecast to approach the coast of South Carolina on Thursday morning. Downtown Charleston was experiencing flooding as a result of the storm, which is expected to run parallel along the coast of the Carolinas into Friday. Despite the dangers from the storm, the 100 or so wild horses in the area are resourceful and have an incredibly strong will to live, during Hurricane Florence last year.
