I received this message from Cass Bromley from the NPS with a brief update and some photos. Thank you so much Cass, I really appreciate the update!
From Thursday went up Sykes and Burnt Timber, lots of horses mostly out in the “hell n gone”, or Area Q or whatever you call that area way out there from Burnt Timber…. There are a few spots starting to show just a little green. We saw Bristol’s band, Grijala’a band, Hidalgo’s, Corona’s, Garay’s, Duke’s (still missing Madonna), Jackson’s (still has Heritage), Baja’s and Galaxy’s. We also saw Jemez, and Tecumseh still dogging his old band. No new foals yet.
All photos credit to NPS.
UPDATE: To clarify a few things in this report, I emailed Cass, based on some of the questions I got from you.
1. All members are still in Jackson’s band.
2. I am 99.9% sure that they saw Hernando with Phoenix and Warbonnet, not Grijala. Those two can be pretty hard to identify, especially at a distances (which this was). The NPS focus right now is the mares (for the PZP treatments), so I can imagine that it would be easy to just look over the stallions.
