The first Pryor Foal of 2018 was born to Morgana and (most likely) Johnston. Morgana is the 2012 daughter of Icara and Merlin. Johnston is the 2009 son of Cascade and Seattle.
Morgana was expected to foal this year (according to the PZP program), so this was not an unexpected birth. It is a bit early, but with her living in the Dryhead, she should hopefully do okay.
No word on name or if it is a colt or a filly. My friends Sarah and Abbie have suggested the name Surprise. I think that is would be perfect. It was the first word that I thought of when I saw this post on the BHCNR facebook page!! Click on Bighorn to see that post.
