Today we are going to look at 7 more bands, from the mountain top, that may have foals this year. I am going to wait until after my trip to the Pryor’s to post our guesses on the Dryhead horses. The first band that we are going to look at is Morning Stars Band.
There is one, possibly two and a tiny maybe on a third and forth. This is one band that I did not get very good photos of this year. They were always just a little bit to far away or resting in the trees. So if anyone has better photos of them and want to share with us, please let me know.
The first mare is Galalic Princess. She is the grulla mare with a star and lg snip, with a left hind sock. The second mare that may have a foal (a maybe) is Harmony. She is the dun mare with the left hind sock and right hind pastern. Then a really tiny maybe is Joviana. She is only going to be 3 this year. But by some reports, she may be pregnant, so we will list her here as well. She is another grulla with a small star, snip, left hind sock and right hind sock. The forth mare that may foal is also a really tiny maybe. It is Shadow (Hail Storm). She is the smoky blue roan.
Don’t forget that you can click on the photos to make them larger and if you click on them again, they will go full size and you can really zoom in on theses horses.
The next band is Custer’s Band. Fiasco had little Leo last year. She may have another one this year. Leo is Custer’s only living offspring, so it would be nice if they added another one to their band.
Now we will move on and look at Cloud’s Band. There is only one in this band that may foal this year. It is the beautiful Feldspar, the daughter of Starman and Rosarita. Cloud did not have any foals of his own last year. The foal that was born in his band, Lynx (pictured at the top of this post) is actually the son of Incoentes and Ferdinand. Ferdinand died or went missing during the winter last year (2010-2011).
Next is Bolder’s Band. Again we have one mare in this band that may be pregnant. But there may be some surprises in any of these bands that we don’t know about. The mare in Bolder’s band is Celt, she is the daughter of Mateo and Electra. Celt is also the mother of Killian (Echo).
Next is Blue Moon’s (Flint) Band. The mare that may foal in this band is the sorrel roan, Halcyon. She is the mother of the pretty 2009 filly, Judith. Halcyon is the daughter of Blue Sioux and Red Raven.
Next is Red Raven’s (Coronado). There are two mares that may have foals this year in this band. Autumn (Fools Gold), and Dove. Autumn (Fools Gold) is one of my favorite mares on the range. She is the daughter of Amathyst (Texas) and Shaman, her name is Fools Gold (Autumn) I always seem to see her when I am there. She and her gorgous little filly Kiva (Kicksalot) are a beautiful site. I remember in August of 2010 when she decided to leave her band where her mother was (Bolder) and go with Red Raven. Her mother (Amathyst (Texas)) spent the entire day calling for her. I felt sad for Amathyst, but it was time for Fools Gold ( Autumn) to find a band of her own.
Another mare in Red Raven’s (Coronado) band that my foal is Dove. She is the daughter of Phoenix and Teton(Diamond).
There is one more band that may have a foal from the top of the mountain. The young grullo stallion Garcia took Bristol’s mare and two filly’s early last summer. I did not see him and his new band this year. I saw Garcia when he was a bachelor the summer 2010. I have video footage of him, but no photos. You can see him at 1:02 on the video at the bottom of this post. The mare Greta may have a foal this year. I have been waiting for a few days to see if any of my friends have photos of him and his band. No one seems to have any, so I thought I would go ahead and post anyway. If I am able to locate some photos I will post them.
Of course there is a chance that some of these guesses are wrong and we may get some extra surprises from some of the other mares!
