Each year roughly 60 foals are born on Assateague Island, Virginia. In an effort to manage herd size, foals are sold at auction. A select group of foals are designated as 'buy backs' and are returned to Assateague Island to replenish the herd. These are the 2 ways to participate in this exciting auction! Proceeds from the auction help with veterinary care and general maintenance throughout the year. Please Note: All sires are probable and are based on breeding sightings and extensive notes on who the mare was with when the foal was conceived. Please read the attached documents below regarding payment/pick up terms and buy back foals.
