Did you ever hear of the wild ponies on Assateague and Chincoteague Islands in I think Virginia? There is a herd on each island I think. They round them up every year and auction some off and then they are released to go back to their island and live free again. I wanted to go buy one really bad when I was little and we went there on vacation to see the wild ponies. If you heard of the Misty of Chincoteague stories by Marguerite Henry you know what I am talking about. It is called Pony Penning and it is a big fundraiser where they auction off the foals.

http://www.kyhorsepark.com/imh/bw/chinco.html

I found this part interesting. sp they are owned technically but still wild free roaming animals:
Both herds are managed differently. The National Park Service owns and manages the Maryland herd while the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company owns and manages the Virginia herd. The Virginia herd, referred to as the "Chincoteague" ponies, is allowed to graze on Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, through a special use permit issued by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The size of both herds is restricted to approximately 150 adult animals each in order to protect the other natural resources of the wildlife refuge.

In Virginia, the "Pony Penning" event is responsible for meeting the limit of 150 adult animals. The Virginia herd undergoes a veterinarian check twice a year. In the spring (April) they are vaccinated against encephalitis (both eastern and western strain), rabies and tetanus and tested for EIA (Equine Infectious Anemia or swamp fever). They are also de-wormed and some horses have their hooves trimmed. In the fall they are de-wormed again and all horses have their hooves trimmed. The horses on the Virginia side of the island are also fenced off from road areas to stop people from feeding them and attracting them to cars and roadways, where they have been fatally injured in the past.
