Pryor Foal # 6 was born in August to Hataali and Morning Star. A Filly named Morning Reverie.
Hataali is the 2007 daughter of Sapo and Shaman, Morning Star is the 1996 son of Washakie and Plenty Coups. Morning Star was 21 this year, so this will most likely be one of his last foals.
Thank you Linda Dombeck for your great photos (taken on August 29th). This little filly seems to have a lot of personally and I am looking forward to seeing her grow up on the range!
This year, the effects of the PZP (birth control on the mares) seems to be working. With only 4 live foals for this year and the loss of at least 9 horses for the 2017 year, that leaves us with a negative 5 growth. This will be the second year where there has been negative or very little population growth. I am hoping that this will be noted and taken into account when the discussion of a removal comes around. We need to carefully watch the genetics and assure that a healthy amount of horses are allowed to stay on the range.
