Wild ones: Chincoteague ponies make their way across Assateague Channel during the 86th annual Chincoteague Wild Pony Swim on Wednesday. Each year the wild ponies are auctioned to raise money for the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company, which cares for the Virginia herd. Ponies that are not sold and those that are donated back to the fire department will roam free for another year on the national wildlife refuge on Assateague. (Associated Press)
