Ponies swim across islands in annual event in Virginia

More than 200 ponies swam from Assateague Island to neighboring Chincoteague Island in the 92nd Annual Chincoteague Pony Swim event on Virginia's eastern shore on Wednesday morning.

The distance covered was under 1,000 yards, and the foals were sold at an auction the following day.

The Chincoteague Ponies are small horses that live in the wild on Assateague Island and are considered docile and resilient.
