There seemed to be a large number of horses on the island, some tied up near the road, others just wandering in the brush and vegetation. There is such an abundance of greenery for these vegetarians to eat. And they were just as curious to check us out as we were them.
Molokai has the highest number of ancient Hawaiian fishponds. A loko i'a (fishpond) was created by building a scallop shaped lava rock wall in the shallow waters off shore and it was used for storing and fattening up fish, by hand feeding them sweet potatoes and breadfruit.Today the # 1 catch is the Striped Mullek Fish. Three kinds of crab are commonly found in the average 10-20 acre fishponds, Blue Pincher, White Kuhono and the best tasting which is the Samoan.
Don't be startled when a complete stranger, most likely a "local' (resident of the island) says Aloha or hello to you as you walk the town or beaches, it's nice to say aloha or good morning/afternoon/evening back to them.
When you're driving, wave and smile because if they're "local", they will most likely do this gesture of friendliness first.
Some horses even had resident cranes on their backs. It's a win-win situation as the horse will get rid of bugs and the crane gets a tasty meal.
