Hi, my name is Nick and I'm a
I was born on May 25, 1994 and live on Cape
Cod, Massachusetts, USA. I moved up here on August 8, 1994 after I was purchased
at the " Pony Roundup," on July 27, 1994, which is held ever year by
the Chincoteague Fire Department, in the state of Virginia. My mother,
"Shore Thing," and my father, "Circuit Breaker," still live
on the island. This roundup is held every last Wednesday and Thursday that are
together in July. All the horses are rounded up and then they swim across the
channel between the island and mainland. I didn't get to swim because I was too
small, so I was taken over by boat. Only selected ponies are auctioned off and
the rest go back to the island for breeding. The money raised by this auction is
used to help support the Chincoteague Fire Department.
The Chincoteague Pony Drill Team, the only one of its kind in the
world, was invited to perform at Equitana USA, in Louisville, Kentucky, in
June of 1998.
