Wild Horse of Assateague Island, an awarded photograph of Hope McCall (2009). While Assateague Island (located off the eastern coast of Maryland and Virginia) is known for its free-roaming horses, these horses are not descendants of the wild horses of the past. With the exception of Przewalski hourses from Mongolia, the wild horses are extinct. The last Tarpan horse died in Russia in the mid 1980s.
