Assateague Island’s Wild Horses to Appear on Stamp

The famous wild ponies of Assateague Island National Seashore will be commemorated on a Forever stamp.

The stamp will be released on June 2 as part of a pane of 16 stamps celebrating the National Park Service’s Centennial. A photograph by Tim Fitzharris of Fayetteville, Arkansas was used to create the image.

Assateague Island National Seashore is a barrier island with sandy beaches, salt marshes, maritime forests and coastal bays off the Eastern Shore. Bands of wild horses freely roam among plants and native animals that have adapted to a life of sand, salt and wind. Click here for more information about Assateague Island National Seashore.
