We recently created a store where you can purchase prints of selected pictures on this website..  If you're interested, click the "Buy Pictures and Stuff" link to the left.

Many people each year visit Chincoteague and Assateague Islands to see the ponies.  We're no different.  For over 20 years, we've been visiting and taking pictures of the ponies.  The pictures here fall into 3 categories.  Click on one of the above links or click on one of the pictures below to go directly to those pony pictures.
