As we travelled around the Outer Banks we noticed a number of horses with wings. Makes sense, eh -- "nags" in the area where flight began. I was intrigued so I took pictures of the horses whenever I saw them. I wonder how many there are? Meridian, Mississippi and Winchester, Virginia also have this sort of signature mascot. Winchester has giant apples and Meridian has carousel horses. I wonder how many town in the U.S. do this. It would make a great article in a travel magazine!
Here are some of the flying nags of Nags Head including one who appears to have lost his wings.
