A new foal was born on the mountain to the mare Labrava and stallion Irial.
Labrava is the 2011 daughter of Blue Sioux and Coronado.
This little one was discovered by Nancy from the Pryor Mountain Mustang Center and Kristen. The foal appears to be a few weeks old, so sometime between the first and second week of December is most likely her birth. The foal has been named Pilar, which is Spanish for Pillar.
Thank you Jack for emailing and allowing me to use these photos to share. Jack feels the foal is a filly, so welcome little girl!
Labrava has had two very unusual foal births. This late season foal, and the foal that was stolen in July 2013.
If you have been following my blog, you will remember the post I did about a birth of a foal right outside my tent on the morning of July 9,2013. That was LaBrava’s first foal, Nacer and due to circumstances beyond either ones control, little Nacer only lived for about 30 hours. If you would like to read more about Nacer, you can click on LABRAVA to go to that post.
Although this is a very unusual time for a wild foal to be born, little Pilar looks to be a sturdy one, born into a band of strong mares, she has an excellent chance of growing old on the mountain. I am keeping a positive stance, that she will survive and thrive.
