The 3rd known Pryor Foal born this year has been found! Dennis McCollough report seeing them on Sunday. Thank you Dennis for the use of your photos!
This foal and his mother have a very special place in my heart.
This young mare was born to Jackson and Galena in 2012. (Making her Lakota’s granddaughter as well!) During the first winter of her life, she was separated from her family band. She ended up in Cappuccino’s band before her first birthday. Blanca looked after her like a mother, and she grew into a beautiful quiet mare that has remained with sturdy and handsome Cappuccino since that time.
In 2014 she had her first foal. My guests and I were one of the first to see him. He was named Obsidian. Obsidian died just 6 days after he was born. You can read about his birth here: THE BIRTH and also read about the day he died here: Obsidian
In 2016, Moenkopi foaled again. This time she had a filly named Quivira. She was born in September that year, and by the end of January 2017, she had disappeared. It is not known what happened.
This past weekend Moenkopi was found with her 3rd foal. It looks to be a colt. His name is going to be Shoshone.
Moenkopi is the 2012 daughter of Jackson and Galena. Cappuccino is the 2002 son of Rosarita and Starbuck.
I hope that this little colt survives and thrives on the mountain. I look forward to watching him grow up into a strong stallion.
