((Even before the first snap of training camp, Several sporting publications tapped the Redskins as a team that would make it to the N-F-L playoffs this season.
And if that happens it will be the first post season play for the Redskins since 1992.)) ((CHARLEY CASSERLY/REDSKINS GENERAL MANAGER:)) ((But even Casserly admitts that on playoff the Redskins would appear to be a playoff contender.
The signing of free agent defensive tackles Dana Stubberfield and Big Daddy Dan Wilkinson gives the Skins two big bodys up front.
There are 19 rookies in camp and they all have performed above expectations.
And quarterback Gus Frerotte is healthy. Frerotte missed the final three games of the regular season last year with a broken hip.)) ((GUS FREROTTE/REDSKIN QUARTERBACK:)) ((JEFF HOSTETTLER/REDSKIN QUARTERBACK:)) ((ROY STANDUP:))

It's the annual event made famous by the children's story "Misty of Chincoteague."
Tourists got a chance to take pictures and pet the foals.
The ponies will be auctioned off tomorrow.
Legend has it Chincoteague ponies are descended from ponies that survived the wreck of a Spanish galleon in the 16th century.
