2015, Who Will Have Foals This Year?

Outlawlass, June 2014

This year has gone by so fast, it is already time for Wild In The Pryors  4th annual “Who Will Have Foals” post.  This is based off of the current PZP (birth control) program and include those mares who should not have been given the drug.  Of course, not all of these mares may foal and then, like every year, there will most likely be a few surprises.

This year the window of “Non-PZP” are the mares born from 2004-2009.  I will be including those from 2010 as well.  The 2010mares are a maybe.

Last year gave us many surprises.  This year the list is long, with a possible 28 mares falling into this group (including the 2010 mares).

So here we go:

DRYHEAD

1.  Kitalpha, born in 2010, daughter of Buffalo Girl and Durango.  She was with Hidatsa for part of last summer, so I am hoping if she is pregnant, it will be a Kitalpha/Hidatsa foal.  I couldn’t think of a more perfect match.  She has been seen with a few other Dryhead stallions since then.

2.  Jewel, born in 2009, daughter of Waif and Corona.  Jewel was with Hawk in April, then several other stallions throughout the rest of the year.

My next post will be “The Name Game”, giving everyone an opportunity to suggest names for these new foals.  Remember, it is a “P” year and please try to suggest names fitting to the mare and/or stallion.  Some past names have very apparent themes, so we try to stick with those.  If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

  1. Sandy, the photos are awesome as ever. These horses are so pretty it gives me chills! What a big group. It’s very exciting to think spring and foal season will be here before long. Hoping along with you that Lakota has many grandchildren this year. 🙂

  2. What a beautiful bunch of possible mommas! It’s going to be so exciting, once again. Thanks so much for the compilation of data and beautiful pics of these gorgeous mares (and others, in some of the pics). I wish some of Jackson’s mares would be carrying foals from their time with him, especially Jasmine. TY again. 🙂

      1. Santa Fe was briefly in the mix too. I was recently going over that timeline wondering if there could be a Jackson foal too. If it’s an early April foal it could really be a toss up. Unless it was dun, then we’d know 🙂 It would be nice like you said Linda if Jasmine had a Jackson foal since she did choose him as her first stallion. Though I have a feeling that Jackson probably hasn’t sired his last foal yet.

  3. I look forward to all of the foals that are born each year, but there’s a few that I’m really hoping for too! I’d love to see the combination of Kitalpha and Hidatsa. That would be one gorgeously marked baby! But then I also wouldn’t mind it to be Bristol’s either as it would likely be his last. I also really want to see a Fools Crow baby!! And I’m happy Icara appears to be pregnant in recent photos. I’d really like for Halo to foal again too. I’d like to see a Hawk baby so hopefully we’ll see one from either Halo or Jewel, or even both maybe. But I hope at least one of them has a Hawk baby. I’ve also had the image of a gorgeous blue roan baby from Isadora and Flint in my head for the past couple years so hopefully we’ll see a foal from Isadora this year. And another Fiasco x Custer baby would of course be great. Fools Gold appears to be very pregnant in recent photos so I’m hoping she foals earlier and it’s Red Raven/Coronado’s baby. Judging by how she looks I think she may be one of the first to foal this year. And a Hera x Galaxy foal would be undoubtedly absolutely gorgeous!!! I’ve wondered if he’ll pass on that gorgeous wavy mane to his foals. After losing La Salle in 2012 and then losing her foal the following year it would be nice to see Jacinta have a foal too. Kohl is one I’m hoping for too! I had a feeling you would be hoping for that one. Two of the ones I’m really REALLY hoping for are Hailstorm and Juniper! I feel like I’ve been waiting for years on both of those mares! Hailstorm kind of teased us with a is she/isn’t she? in 2013 so hopefully this will be the year for her. Jasmine is as equally beautiful and I’m sure will have lovely babies too. Those Cloud x Aztec daughters all turned out so stunning! I’ve also really been wanting to see the combination of Juniper and Horizon, that will be a gorgeous foal too I’m sure. It would be nice to see a foal from Gaelic Princess too. I hope some of the mares who have had consecutive foals for the last couple years may get a break. Like Firestorm and Feldspar, I always look forward to their foals and they are always beautiful, but those mamas have definitely earned a year off. Usually (and hopefully) the mares that have late foals don’t foal again the next year so that’s what I’m hoping for for Galadrial, Ingrid, and Ketchikan. I was very happy to see a foal for each of them last year, but those foals and moms are going to need as much nourishment as they can get this winter.

    Haha I like how I saw “a few” and then go on to make an individual mention about practically ever mare! Thanks for putting this together for us!

  4. Also thanks for sharing some of your July 2014 pictures that you hadn’t shared. I enjoyed getting to see them 🙂 I know there was a mishap with your hard drive and a lot of them from July got deleted before you got to share them with us and then you had to get it fixed, re-download them, and re-edit them all while preparing to leave again soon. Thanks again for all of your efforts to share your photos and experiences with us while also keeping up with your own personal life!!! 🙂

  5. I can’t believe we are already at the point where we are looking at who may foal this year! I also can’t believe that this means that I’ve been commenting on Sandy’s blog for just over a year now-time flies! 🙂

    I had a lot of similar thoughts that were already noted-I would love to see foals from Heritage, Hailstorm, Jacinta, Jasmine, Juniper, Fiasco, Isadora, Gaelic Princess, Fool’s Gold, Half Moon, Icara and Halo. Sarah, I agree that Jasmine and Hailstorm are both stunning-I’ve always thought Aztec a beautiful mare!

    As others have noted , I’m hoping the mares who foaled in October get the year off to concentrate on themselves and their existing foals! I’m also really hoping Tecumseh has finally manged to win Galadriel and that they and Oceana are safe and sound together 🙂

    As much as I can’t wait for some of the 2010 mares to have foals, I’m kind of hoping they don’t this year. I’m just afraid of providing ammunition for increasing removals or intensifying the PZP administration….. I can’t believe how grown up (and beautiful!) Kohl looks in that picture-I seem to think of her as a young filly still 😛

    I also hope Firestorm, Feldspar (and I love, love the foals from these mares), Greta, and Halcyon all get a break. Not to mention, the more foals they each have, the higher the odds that some of their existing offspring will be removed. Washakie and Waif better get a break this year too! 🙂

    I loved the beautiful shots of the mares in this post 🙂

    1. Poor Washakie! If doctors could bottle whatever fertility magic she has going on they would make millions! I forgot to mention Greta and Halcyon, but I do hope they get a break too! I was glad Gabrielle and Galena got last year off.

      1. Haha, that’s so true! They could call it the “Washakie Wonder” haha.
        It’s always nice for the mares to get a year’s break! I look forward to a Galena foal too, she’s so beautiful and so are both her girls!

        It would be nice to see some of the mature stallions who don’t have any offspring (I’m looking at you Mescalero, haha) have foals in their bands too….plus Hidalgo and Hidasta are so gorgeous I can’t wait to see what their foals will look like 🙂 and Horizon, of course!

  6. Also forgot to mention this earlier. But you saw Halo with Hidatsa in July? I’ve had this theory that Hidatsa was the one who originally took Belle Star, Halo, Jewel, and Mercuria from Hawk, but then couldn’t keep all the mares together when he later took Kitalpha and Nova. And then Halo ended up with Fools Crow and Jewel and Mercuria ended up with Kemmerer. I just didn’t think it was super likely that Kemmerer (even with how solid he is) was able to overpower Hawk for the mares and since Belle Star was with Hidatsa I thought that he must have taken the mares from Hawk, but wasn’t able to hold onto them. But I didn’t realize there was any more “proof” to back up my theory 🙂

  7. Does anyone know who the mares are that were sighted with Jemez? 🙂 hope that doesn’t mean Medicine Bow is alone, even though i know the bachelors go off and do their own thing all the time!
