I loved your story. We were just in Corolla, North Carolina this summer. We didn't see the wild horses but read about them (and we saw the Currituck Light House). At first I thought you may be referring to the legend of Nag's Head. Your descriptions are wonderful. Your writing is so smooth. I was definitely cheering for the Treasure (a perfect name for a pirates horse).
Sensitively and beautifully written--I'm sure this would be a captivating story for any age group! I just love horses--had a few myself in my teens & twenties, and know how sensitive they are. (If I were an artist, I'd be begging to illustrate this piece!)Your ending was supremely satisfying--loved the way you opened with the horse loving the sea, and end with the sea carrying her "home"!

I really liked this story. I thought it was a truly unique slant on the topic. Oh that I could have that ability.

I did wonder how the horse got from her stall (presumably with a closed door) to the deck.
