Ponies Up for Auction!

Have you ever wanted a pony for Christmas? Well here's your chance! ...I think?

The Daily Times of Salisbury reports that the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company announced Wednesday night that four late-born foals from the wild herd it manages will be for sale.

The fire company is offering two fillies and two colts, one of which is a rare "medicine hat" pony made even more valuable in some circles by his blue eyes. The "medicine hat" descriptor refers to his head's colored patch.

Bids start at $1,500 and must be mailed in by Dec. 14.

The ponies will not be available for buyback, where bidders purchase naming rights but the ponies remain on the island.
