The annual round up of the wild ponies from Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge on Assateague Island has captured the hearts & minds of people from everywhere. Volunteer firemen round up the ponies on Assateague Island & swim them across the channel to Chincoteague Island where they are herded down Main Street to the carnival grounds. There is an auction at the Carnival grounds to sell the foals. Once purchased, the ponies can be transported immediately (in the US) as they have been cleared for travel by the veterinarian.
