Pryor Foals # 17 and 18

Washakie and Ojai

I was about to announce the arrival of Galadrials much anticipated foal, when I realized I never made a formal announce for Washakies foal, so this post will cover both of those.

Foal number 17 was born to:

Washakie, daughter of Sitka and Shamen, born in 1994 and Baja, son of Tonapah and Looking Glass, born in 1996, had a foal, born on August 6, 2014.  The foal is a filly and was discovered by Shawn Ivie.  The chosen name for this filly is Ojai.

Foal number 18 was born to:

Galadrial, daughter of Atlantis and Duke, born in 2006.  Sire of this foal could be one of two stallions:

Tecumseh, son of Warbonnet and Flash, born in 1998.  OR Gringo, son of Madonna and Duke, born in 2006.  I am hoping that the foal is Tecumseh’s.

This foal was discovered by Steve Cerroni of the Pryor Mountain WIld Mustang Center.  The photos are from their facebook page.

Steve thought the foal may be a filly, no name has been chosen yet.

This year 18 known foals have been born on the range, with 15 remaining alive.   I hope that all survive the upcoming winter. Foals lost this year were from Morgana, Demure and Moenkopi.

  1. So good to see that Galadriel´s foal has finally arrived. Any thoughts about Ketchikan? Also am wondering about the female/male ratio?

    1. 2014: Filly’s : 5 (if this one is) Colts: 13. I hope Ketchikan is just fat. I don’t want another foal born this year. Kechikan’s bloodline is so rare, that foal needs to be born at the best possible time of the year, giving it the best odds for survival.

  2. Love the pictures of Ojai and Washakie-they are such a pretty pair! And so glad Galadriel finally foaled!! Rather late in the year but there was no way she wasn’t pregnant! What a cute little filly (?) too-hopefully she is a Tecumseh daughter! 🙂 I hope Ketchikan isn’t pregnant at this point too; it would be too hard on her and the foal. Are we still questioning Innocentes?

    What is the desired male:female ratio for the Pryors (as designated by BLM)? I feel like a lot more of the “K” girls were removed than the boys but I could be wrong on that as I haven’t looked at the names in a while.

    I also heard that Morgana’s foal died so I guess that brings us to a foal loss of 3 😦
    and yes-fingers crossed for them all during the winter!!

  3. I think Galadrial’s foal was one of the most anticipated foals of the year! Ojai is beautiful too and all of the foals are highly anticipated but I think a lot of people were looking forward to Galadrial’s and then she drug it out until late in foaling season too. Maybe on purpose haha so all the atention would be on them 🙂 Ketchikan’s so big I feel like she’s got to be pregnant. If thats the case I hope for the best for her and her foal. I hope for the best for Galadrial and her filly too. Galadrial is in great shape and her filly seems really healthy, so I have a good feeling.
