Mountain Update: Third Foal, April 25, 2012

Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area had this posted on their Facebook page last night:

Another beautiful Mustang foal! Park staff came across this new foal yesterday on Sykes Ridge. The mother’s name is Jewel, who spent the majority of last summer in the park with a stallion named Merlin. This year she has been with the stallion called Hidalgo, who also spent last summer in the park around mustang flats… — at Wyoming. Photo by Bill Pickett.

The mother of the foal is Jewel (Waif and Corona) and the father is Merlin (Wounded Knee and Lancelot).  This is Merlin’s second foal this year.  The first one is Morgana, born last month.  You can read about her here: Morgana.
