2 Mill Swamp Indian Horses

Taking a walk in the country, seeing some of the nation's rarest heritage livestock, learning some local history that you likely have not heard--and maybe even a ghost story or two from Moonlight - a great way to spend a Wednesday Night. Guests are invited to come out and meet our heritage livestock and learn about how they fit into history.

 
Come out and meet our Choctaw horses from the lines that carried the native people of the Southeast into exile  on the Trail of Tears. Meet the Marsh Tacky horse of South Carolina and learn about the role of horses in the American Revolution. See our Banker horses, some from Corolla and even some from Shackleford. Even wild mustangs from Nevada and Utah grace our pastures. Spanish goats, Valera, Baylis, and San Clemente strains are waiting out in the front pastures. Our Hog Island sheep came either directly from Mount Vernon or they are only a few generations away. Our Leicester sheep fill out our herd of small ungulates.  Highland Cattle, though not here in the Colonial era, played a vital role in the lives of Scottish herdsmen. You might even see some early colonial Ossabaw hogs or catch a glimpse of a Narragansett turkey.
 
Wear comfortable shoes. Bring some water and bring your family. There is no charge to attend. However, to reserve a spot in these waking tours first send Steve an email at msindianhorses@aol.com.
