A Chincoteague Pony of His Own

John Price was the lucky recipient of a grant to purchase a Chincoteague foal.

Watching the famous Chincoteague pony auction in July of 2017, 13-year-old John Price wished he could bring home a foal—perhaps one with pinto markings. One by one, the foals entered the paddock that day while the herd of island ponies, many of them still flecked with marsh mud, swatted flies in a nearby corral. The quick words of the auctioneer rang out over the loud speaker, and foal after foal was sold to the highest bidder.

John’s parents made him a deal: If he committed to learning how to care for a foal, maybe they’d come back the following year and bid on one. They bought a book about Chincoteague ponies before heading home to Pennsylvania.
