Wild ponies swam across the Assateague Channel in July 2018 during the 93rd annual Pony Swim in Virginia. Every year, the wild ponies are rounded up on the national wildlife refuge. Most of the foals are auctioned off by the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company, which owns the herd. The adults then return to the wild.
