Dianne Faucette, a docent with the Coastal Discovery Museum, takes pictures of Bullet, a marsh tacky mare, and her filly, Honey Horn May, as the two get acquainted with their new surroundings after being delivered to Honey Horn on Friday morning. The two horses, on loan from Marion Gohagan, will reside at the museum for the next several months. Tackies are a rare horse breed unique to the South Carolina Lowcountry. Descended from Colonial-era Spanish horses, the marsh tacky was recently named the state heritage horse.
