Seller Comments...
One of the more isolated nature preserves in the north east, Assatigue/Chincoteague Island is a barrier island shared by Maryland (Assatigue) and Virginia (Chincotigue). This island is home to a free roaming band of ponies that have learned to be more friendly than perhaps is good for them, due to frequent visitors laden with food. This is a case in point, where a newly wed couple made a visit and proceeded to feed the ponies doughnuts. The one pictured here stuck his head into their VW van, received a doughnut, sat down with head still inside the van, rear legs straightened and couldn't get up. The pony was actually being strangled under its' own weight. A long story short, he was finally released with a hoist brought in by park rangers and a detaching of the VW door. This is one of a series from these events presented as a feature in the magazine section of the Baltimore News American, 'The Ponys on Their Honymoon'. What a bazaar image!

All materials, techniques and pigments used in producing this print are archivally in line with museum standards. Print is frontally titled and signed with copyright. All measurments are from the image edges and do not include the generous griping border. Each print also include instructions for care and if followed will extend print-life so as to provide many, many decades of viewing pleasure. Buyer will pick-up actual shipping and insurance costs. Should you be in Manhattan when you place your order, I'll personally deliver the print for less than shipping/insurance. By purchasing any of my works, you agree to honor U.S. copyright statutes as they apply to this image…enjoy! samfoto@earthlink.net
