Just Horsing Around

According to a recent article in the News and Observer, North Carolina now has a state horse. Called mustangs by the General Assembly but banker ponies in our clipping files, our new state horse has been around for quite a while on the Outer Banks. Many believe these smallish steeds descend from horses which escaped from Spanish explorers in the 16th century. They join a growing list of official state things. I wonder if there is a state blog?
