Pryor Foal number 15 was born yesterday to the mare Moenkopi and the stallion Cappuccino.
Moenkopi is the 2012 daughter of Galena and Jackson. Cappuccino is the 2002 son of Rosarita and Starbuck.
I saw this band the afternoon of July 12th. Moenkopi looked to be bagging up at that time. I just had a feeling it may be that night. As luck would have it, we discovered them late in the afternoon of July 13, 2014. Blanca was busy keeping everyone away from Moenkopi, including Cappuccino.
We were able to locate this band again this morning in a remote area of the mountain, away from all the other bands. It was then that we were able to confirm that Moenkopi’s foal is a colt. Both look to be doing well and Cappuccino was allowed back into the band.
Following in the tradition of the meaning of Moenkopi and Galena, which are rocks and/or minerals. My group and I decided we would name the foal Obsidian. Which is a black volcanic rock. Even though he is not black, it seemed fitting, as this rock is found on the Pryor Mountains. Obsidian is also called an Iceland Agate, making this even more fitting, as one of my guests came all the way from Iceland to see the Pryor Horses.
