Making It Grow

Marsh Tacky


Amanda McNulty visits with David Grant on his farm in Florence and learns about The Marsh Tacky Horse. The Carolina Marsh Tacky or Marsh Tacky is a rare breed of horse, native to South Carolina. It is a small horse, well adapted for use in the lowland swamps of its native South Carolina. The Marsh Tacky was developed from Spanish horses brought to the South Carolina coast by Spanish explorers, settlers and traders, as early as the 16th century. The horses were used by the colonists during the American Revolution, and by South Carolinians for farm work, herding cattle and hunting throughout the breed's history. Can't see the video?
