Mount Rogers Hike: The ponies

This was our first glimpse at the wild ponies which populate the area around Mount Rogers. They are descended from domesticated horses in the area; there are two herds, with a total number of about 120. The herd is thinned each year by rangers to maintain a sustainable population.
