Eighty five ponies were auctioned off Thursday July 26th 2001. One horse went for $10500, an all time high. The Chincoteague Fire Department made more than $166,000 from the auction. The auction helps keep the herd size to about 150 horses and supplies the Chincoteague area with fire fighting equiptment. That is the maximum number that the government says can be supported on the grazing lands in the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge on Assateague.
