Cloud's beautiful black father Raven was from the lower regions of Pryor Mtn. & his full sister Belle Star is the mother of this beautiful soon-to-be 10 yr. old stallion, HICKOK--making Cloud and Hickok 1st cousins. Hickok lives in the lower Dryhead and is often seen near the Bighorn Canyon entrance just past the cattle guard. Isn't he beautiful? His longtime 18 yr. old dun mare Seneca is one...

TOP O' THE MORNING TO YOU FROM PRYOR MTN!
We want to share a little Irish fun--here is little Limerick the summer she was born ('11) & throughout her first 3 yrs.
Ginger tells us more: "I named her Limerick because the BLM had named her red roan mother/Cloud’s sister, "Ireland." So, her offspring with Prince and then with Galaxy also have Irish names--(like Irial). The mother/daughter...

These folks in Idaho are able to collaborate with the BLM and curtail the helicopter Challis roundup in 2017 and instead implement a bait-trapping removal. Idaho has been hit with a harsh winter and hay funds for are still needed. We applaud their work and encourage you to support them as well. Learn more how to do that here:

Lorie sent us some new photos of Longstockings (Longsocks) who was removed from the Proyors in 2012:
"These are from the first two days he was out with the herd! He's awesome!" He has a great group of new horse friends where he now lives at Edens Aspen Horsemanship in the shadow of the Colorado Rockies, near Longmont CO. Longsocks is the son of Chance.

These are graphic photos of Santa Fe's remains, but Ginger wanted to let them tell more of Santa Fe's story, a majestic wild stallion. Ginger remarked how beautiful his hooves were--almost looked like they had been filed by a farrier in recent weeks. Dr. Lisa remarked on how good his incisors were (front teeth), and his molars were very worn down, which is often the case of an older horse.
SANTA FE: We are sorry to report a loved stallion from the Pryors has died. He was born 2 wks. before Cloud in '95 & is in the first Cloud film, running with Cloud & the bachelors. Santa Fe had a larger role in the 3rd film as he courted Firestorm & challenged Cloud for his mares. Cloud & Santa Fe knew each other through their entire lives, & this handsome bay was one of our favorites. He was...

Red and White Encore! This just received from Ginger:
"We hiked a couple of miles out to have lunch with Encore, Knight, Missoula, & Naolin. All look good considering the tough winter up here--great fun being with them. Doc was nearby, and Firestorm look good from afar! Pride and his band were 1/2 mile away, but we were too pooped to hike over there."
Ginger and Kristen are on the mountain today & found Naolin & Missoula playing with Encore. Knight seems to be ok with their presence. This video shows them about 2 miles away.
Ginger & Kristen checked on the Freedom Family up in Montana this week: Cavalitta, Josie and Mystery came out to greet them! To learn more about these Pryor horses TCF saved in 2009, check out this link on our website:

ESCAPE OF THE PAINT MARE:
"What was the reason to endlessly pursue this terrified, pregnant mare to exhaustion?” Kathrens asked.
“This contractor has been rounding up wild horses for nearly 40 yrs. & should be aware of BLM humane standards,” states Lisa Friday, TCF Board Member. “Their helicopter pilot must have known that the mare was exhausted. Yet he continued the pursuit, and when a...
