A name has been chosen for the colt born to the Corolla wild horse herd last Monday during the tropical storm. The Corolla Wild Horse Fund announced he was named Sebastian.

“We decided to make an exception to our ‘A’ name theme this year and name the colt Sebastian, in honor and memory of a special young man who tragically lost his life in a house fire earlier this month,” stated a Tuesday morning Facebook post from Corolla Wild Horse Fund. “Sebi and his mom Ravann were well-loved members of our community and Sebi was a part of the Mustang Outreach Program.

“We hope this small gesture brings a bit of joy and comfort to their friends and family. Sebi’s legacy will remain a part of this beach for many, many generations to come,” continued the post.
