Chincoteague Saltwater Cowboys found three ponies stuck in the mud last night – one of the ponies had died and two were having trouble. The two, Surf Queen and Randy, were taken to the Chincoteague carnival grounds and the vet called. While both seemed to be rallying, the fire department this morning announced that Surf Queen has died. The other pony that died was Wild Island Orchid. On happier news, another mare had foaled and the Salt
water Cowboys report both are doing well.
