Lori sent me these photos of Juneau and Mendenhall, Kaycee and Mariah and also Hickory, who was adopted by Bess in 2009.  I thought I would share them with you.  They are owned by Bess Carnahan, who lives in Nebraska.  They all look really good.  The little ones have really grown!  Thanks Lori!

  1. Sandy, it is so good to get updates on those adopted ones who always have a place in our hearts although we no longer can see them on the Range. And heartfelt thanks to those who make a loving commitment for care and training by adopting — a huge thank you so much to each of you who have adopted and let us keep in touch.

  2. thanks Sandy !! man Hickory is breath taking!!!! happy Juneau and Keycee are in a great home and have a really good looking boyfriend!

  3. Hickory is such a handsome boy!! He looks a lot like his mama 🙂 Mendenhall and Mariah are so big! Juneau and Kaycee look good too. Thank you Bess for giving them such a great home!! and thank you Sandy and Lori!!

  4. I agree, this is so great to be able to keep track of the adopted ones! They are beautiful and in a good home. Bess told me that she is trying to breed Blue aka Hickory with Kaycee and Juneau! Now, won’t they be awesome foals if they become pregnant?? Thank you Bess!!!
    Mendenhall is a beauty!

    1. Wow, those would be some awesome foals! I was just thinking it was too bad Blue didn’t get to stay wild and have some pretty babies of his own running around!

      1. I totally agree Sarah. Sad, but it has come down to this. For those who adopted stallions before the BLM (“neutered” “castrated” what ever you want to call it) they can still breed with Pryor mares and carry on some of the bloodlines that would be forever gone if not for them! I have a Pryor mare that I would love to breed with “Blue” . Maybe someday!

      2. I hope you’re able to make that happen one day! It’s sad so many bloodlines were removed in the 2009 gather, but happy to see them end up with good people and to see some of the bloodlines get to continue off range. I hope Mystery will some day grace the Freedom Fund with another gorgeous blue roan foal!

  5. Thank you Bess, Lori and Sandy! 🙂 Great to see them all looking so good. I hated to see Juneau removed from the Range because of her beautiful coloring, but am so happy she, Mendenhall, and the others have a good home. 🙂

  6. I agree with you Linda, and she will (hopefully) have some foals, but not in the wild to pass along her bloodline. At least someone is taking care to carry on this particular bloodline, and yes…they have a great home with people who care about them and carrying on the genetic pool. I know it has been a very controversial subject, but, if not in the wild (because they are all taken away from their families and home), then in captivity where people who appreciate these special horses will carry on this special breed of horse.
