A recently passed bill in the House of Representatives could soon double the size of the herd of wild horses on Corolla.
Republican Reprsentative Walter Jones says his bill, "The Corolla Wild Horses Protection Act," has unanimously passed through the House of Representatives.
According to the congressman's website, the bill calls for a new management plan that would allow the number in the herd to be between 110 and 130 horses. The current number allowed is 60.
According to Jones, equine genetic scientists say there should be at least 110 horses in the herd to keep it going. The bill now moves onto the Senate for approval.
