The first known foal of 2019 was born to Waif and Kemmerer. Waif is the 1997 daughter of Twigy and Cortez. Kemmerer is the 2010 son of Sacajawea and Blizzard. No report of the sex yet.
This foal was discovered by Dennis McCollough and Toots. Thank you so much for your photos, and the careful consideration you gave this delicate pair.
Waif’s condition looks pretty bad right now. But as we all know, these wild horses are strong and hopefully she can put on some weight and stay strong.
Unfortunately, this little one did not survive. Rest in Peace Tiny.
Abbie and I were talking today about how wonderful it would be if we were able to post several well made signs throughout the range (especially on the top for all the summer visitors) that stated the proper etiquette for interaction with the wild horses, especially with new-born foals and their band. We have both witnessed what happens when there is interference from people. While we can’t control the interference from other wild horses, we can certainly help control the actions of humans. Let’s all brainstorm on how we can get this done.
I especially like this sign that was made for the McCullough Peaks Wild Horse range. One like it for the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range would be great! Let’s hope we can get it done!
