2019 Name Game, The “T” Year

This will be the 7th year that I have made this post. This is a “fun” only post where any of you can suggest names for the 2019 foals born in the Pryors.  Of course, like on all the previous years, I can not guarantee that they will be used, but it will be fun to list them, and I do know that whenever a foal is born, I come to this post to look at all of the suggestions.  And if you can, please include the meaning for the name, it would be very helpful to know that.

In 2000, the BLM started using a letter for each year of foals, starting with A.  This year is the T year.  So please feel free to list your ideas in the comment section of this post.  To read more about this system and why we use names, please refer to my Name Game post that I did last in 2013.  Click on Name Game to go there.

I am looking forward to reading all of your suggestions.  If someone else has already posted your name idea, please list it again anyway.  It will be fun to see what the most popular name suggestions are!

I’ll be posting my annual “Who Will Have Foals This Year” post soon.  But in the mean time, let’s have some fun coming up with names!

2018 Pryor Foal # 10 Deceased.

IMG_8895In all the years I have been going to the Pryors, I have grown to believe that the mountain gives you gifts according to what your energy or attitude is while you are walking on the horses’ ground.  You just need to be aware of what and when they happen and be thankful for the gift.  This morning was one of those times, and I will hold it in my heart.

On July 9, 2013, my guest Jeanne (who has become a very dear friend) and her two young grandchildren, along with my daughter Amber, witnessed a birth of a foal to a young two-year old filly named Labrava.  I won’t go into the details here, but if you would like to read that post you can click on NACER.

Today, just a few days long of the July 2013 birth,  Labrava gave birth again.  And myself and Abbie were the first to witness this miracle.

IMG_8903

We had 3 wonderful photographer guests that wanted to get first light in the morning.  I actually love the early morning, and was eager take them out and find horses.  After a few minutes of shooting Tecumseh/ Gringo band and Doc’s band, we decided to move down the road a bit.  I parked the car and just took in the beautiful landscape while I sipped my first cup of coffee for the day.  After spending several weeks on the mountain, I have often just enjoyed leaving my camera down and taking in the horses and landscape with my eyes.  As I did this, I noticed Irial’s band to my left.  I counted the horses, including Irial.  Irial has the biggest band on the mountain at 11.  He was one short.  Abbie and I had been watching Labrava closely, and we thought she was very near to foaling.  We saw them the night before and she was walking as if she was uncomfortable.  In a perfect world, we hoped that she would foal that night, but we weren’t sure, because sometimes they can actually go on for days looking that way.

I looked through my binoculars past the other members of Irial’s band.  Just below the hill, I could see LaBrava.  I immediately thought she looked thinner.  Could she have had her foal??  I turned to Abbie and said.  Let’s go take a look.  We took a very wide berth around her (more than 200 feet or more), we walked slowly over.  There on the ground was a tiny dark foal!  LaBrava was comfortable sharing her new life as we watched.  As soon as he stood, it was obvious he was a colt that was going to look just like his father!

Thank you LaBrava for showing us this gift!

IMG_8913IMG_8911

The 10th Pryor Foal was born to LaBrava and Irial.  LaBrava is the 2011 daughter of Blue Sioux and Coronado.  Irial is the 2008 son of Ireland and Prince.  I’ll let you know when a name has been chosen!

Sunset on the Mountain, June 2018

Pryor Foal # 9 was born in the Dryhead while I was on the mountain top.  LaNina has given birth to a colt.  His name is Stillwater.  I do not have any photos to post, but when I do I will post.

LaNina is the 2013 daughter of Bakken.  The sire of this foal could be two horses.  Hidalgo or Hidatsa.

Out of the 9 foals born, there are currently 6 surviving.

Quintana’s (Quartz) new colt

Note: June 8, 2018.  It is with great sadness that I have to report that little Stargazer died.  Every year I try to remind myself not to get too attached.  But for some reason, this little one really tugged at my heart.  I hadn’t even met him yet, but still, there was a special place for him in my heart.  Quintana may have been a very young mother, but I was told she cared deeply for him.  Rest in peace little one.

Another two year old filly has given birth in the Pryors.  Quintana (Quartz) has given birth to a colt, at this time the father is unknown.  His name is going to be Stargazer, in memory of his great-grandfather Starman.

Starman, July 2011.

Quintana (Quartz) is the 2016 daughter of Feldspar and Mescalero.   It is amazing that Mescalero is now a grandfather!  Quartz is Mecalero’s only known offspring, so it is important to keep his line going, especially since he is now 19 years old.

Thank you Dennis McCollough for the use of your photos!  It is very appreciated!

I am counting down the days until Abbie and I will be there to see these little ones for ourselves!   I realize we would not want these births by these young filly’s to happen, but I will still be happy to see these little ones playing in the wildflowers!  Especially after all of last years pain and loss of the foals.

2018 Pryor Foal # 3

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.

Blanca and Moenkopi

Moenkopi, 2-17-13

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

Moenkopi and Obsidian, July 13, 2014

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.

Who Will Have Foals in 2018?

IMG_9599
Moenkopi with Cappucinno and a young Patterson, July 2015

Mares within the Pryor Wild Horse Herd, are given PZP (birth control) every year. Each year there is a group of mares that are in the “window” of possibly being able to foal, meaning that they have not been given PZP.  And every year, there will be some surprises from some, despite being vaccinated, and even though the below horses have not been vaccinated, it is not a guarantee that they will foal. Some have never conceived.

Because some of the horses were vaccinated later than normal last spring/summer, it is possible that they may have already been pregnant, (before given their vaccination), but will not be “officially” listed here.

I will start the list with the possible horses in the Dryhead.  There are only two mares that fall into that window this year, and one has already had her foal!

  1.  Jewel, 2009 daughter of Waif and Corona, currently in Fools Crow band.jewel

2.  Morgana, 2012 daughter of Icara and Merlin.  She was discovered by Bill Picket, NPS with a new foal last week.  The foal is supposedly a colt and it has been named Sorcerer.

  1. Jasmine, 2009 daughter of Aztec and Cloud.  Jamine gave birth to a healthy colt named Ryden in October of 2017.  If she conceived right away, she may have a foal in September of 2018.  Jasmine is currently in Doc’s band.

2.  Juniper, 2009 daughter of Sapo and Bolder.  Another late foal (Ruby) was born to Junipter the first part of November, 2017.  Again if she did conceive right away, she won’t have her foal until October, 2018.  I’m hoping she skips this year and gets back on track with a foal earlier in the season in 2019.  Juniper is currently in Horizon’s band.

I am a little late with this good news post.  Foal # 9 for 2017 was born around November 8th, 2017.   It is a filly who has been named Ruby.  Ruby is the daughter of Juniper and Horizon.

Juniper is the 2009 daughter of Sapo and Bolder.  Horizon is the 2007 son of Felina and Morning Star.

This was another birth that we were all looking forward to.  This is also the band that the beloved Fiesta was in.  I can’t help but think that he is looking down on this little one and watching out for her from above.  I witnessed Fiesta with Joviana’s foal in 2012 (they were both removed in 2012), he was so in love with that little foal, it was really touching to watch him play with him.

IMG_0158Reviews from past guests:

My dream came true camping in the Pryor Mountains of Montana in July 2017.

I have always felt a pull to our American West, horses and the Native American culture and history. Sandy Palen (Wild in the Pryors) was recommended to me when I was seeking out information on how I could spend time with our wild horses. I could not have asked for a more perfect opportunity and guide.

I signed up for the July 15-18th , 2017 guided tour. How excited I was to be camping out in the beautiful Pryor Mountains with the gorgeous Pryor horses.

I was picked up in Cody by Sandy and her assistant Abbie. I truly did not know what to expect and was kind of a chatterbox I think asking questions on our way to the mountain. Sandy was so patient and attentive answering all my questions. There is much to seen on the ride up and it goes by quickly. And when we got there…..the horses and open country were awaiting. I couldn’t believe they were right there!

Finally, I was living a dream! Our campsite was in a fantastic location. We had horses walking by…..grazing nearby……and lots of wonderful viewing time just from the campsite.

The meals were amazing and the smell of fresh coffee in the morning so very welcoming. Everything was planned and thought out to make this an experience of a lifetime….and one to remember so fondly.

We would go out in the truck to search for some other bands and get different views. We took some great little hikes….to get different mountain views and search out other bands. The wildflowers were in bloom and some of the fields were just breathtaking.

There are no words to describe the fabulous scenes that are etched forever in my mind and heart. Sandy made sure that you get the photographs you are looking for and will go out of her way to make sure you are content with everything. Her knowledge (as well as Abbie) of the horses and the mountain is just amazing. It was just awesome to listen to them name the horses, their background and everything about that. I truly envied them that.

They truly do love their Pryor horses. We got to experience it all. From seeing a rainbow shining down on horses…..to seeing a one day old foal….gorgeous stallions standing on the hillside…..bachelors playing and strutting their stuff…..stallions protecting their mares…..gorgeous sunsets…..stormy skies…..unbelieveable views…and just experiencing what life is like in the day of our wild mustangs.

For me to finally be out in the open….in the mountains….24/7 with the Pryor horses, I got to live one of my wildest dreams. It meant the world to me. I highly recommend Sandy (Wild in the Pryors) if you are looking for that once in a lifetime experience of spending time with our wild mustangs. You will not be disappointed. It’s just the best!

Fields of Dreams
If you are searching for an adventure, if you’d love to see and photograph some of the oldest descendants in the founding of America, if you love horses, nature and the out of doors, consider a trip with Sandy Palen and “Wild In The Pryors”.
The road up to the mountain top is a bit rough, however, once you get up there it will take your breath away.  Your first spotting of the horses will cause your heart to skip a beat.  And it just gets better from there.  
Sandy knows these horses like the back of her hands.  She knows the details of the stallions, their bands, their mares and their foals.  She knows their history.  She has a sense of where they will be in the mornings and where they might be in the afternoons.  And she loves them!  
Along with being a great photographer, Sandy is an expert at camping and has everything so organized it makes camping easy.  All someone has to do is show up.  I had never camped nor slept in a tent and it was the most amazing thing.  I wish I had that view from my tent every morning when I wake up.   Sandy cooked delicious meals on top of that mountain; and a sandwich for lunch never tasted better than on that mountain.  The views of the country side, the Bighorn Mountains and the Bighorn Canyon were unbelievable.  You can see miles and miles of both Montana and Wyoming from up there.
The horses in the Pryor Mountains are descendants of the horses brought over to America in the 1600s.  They came with the original explorers who came to America.  It is beyond words to be a part of these incredible animals and to be able to bring home memorable photographs of them.  Advocating for and helping to save the mustangs running free becomes very real to you.  
I had attempted to make this trip for several years, however, was unable to.  So when I was finally able to go this summer I left all my expectations at home.  What I found up there was beyond my wildest dreams and more than anything I could have hoped for.  We saw a foal only a few hours after she was born.  We had almost every horse on the mountain walk or run by our camp sight two evenings in a row.  I had the privilege of seeing the oldest horse on the mountain, a mare, still loving her band. Photographing the horses against the sunset two nights in a row is still a vision in my memory.  I hope some day to return and hope these horses are still running free.
If you love horses and you are looking for the trip of a lifetime which includes them, you have found it!

Has a Missing Horse Reappeared?

img_0650
Issaquah

A couple of weeks ago, there were some photos posted on the Pryor Mountain Mustang Center’s Facebook page.   These photos, were taken by Dennis McCollough.  It showed  three dark-colored horses, two of which were easily identified as Orlando and Oglala.  The third was not as easily identified.  Another wild horse follower, Dawn Ness,  was also in that area and took some photos.

This black horse appeared to be solid black.  There are only two horses in the Dryhead that are solid black.  Seattle and his son Issaquah.  Issaquah has not been officially seen for a couple of years now.  But not surprising, the Dryhead is a huge and vast area, and anyone that would see him from a distance would possibly make the assumption that it was:

1.  Seattle, the son of Tacoma and Three Bars, was born in 1997.  He was reported to look very thin this past fall and also has a very distinct swollen knee on the right side.  This horse was not him.

Seattle, photo taken by Laura Curtis.

2.  Chief Joseph, son of Bakken and Seattle, born in 2009.   Without spotting his back right hind, he could easily be thought to be his full brother Issaquah.  But this horse had no right back hind, (as seen in Dawn’s photos below).

3.  Inniq, son of Sitting Bull and Ceceila, born in 2008.  Several people thought and think it was Inniq.  But Inniq has a very destinctive star, and this horse does not have one.  (Thank you Dawn for taking that photo of this horse with a clear shot of his forehead with out a star!

Not Inniq!  Photo taken by Dawn Ness.

The first person to make the comment that it was Issaquah, was Alex Pitterman.  Alex has followed this herd for many years and is virtually a walking encyclopedia with what he knows about this herd.   At first I thought maybe it was not Issaquah, but then I began to think about the vastness of the Dryhead and how he could easily be misidentified for one of the other black horses.  I am convienced that the horse that was spotted is indeed Issaquah.  Thank you Alex for bringing it to our attention!

As a young bachelor, Issaquah was almost always seen with his 1/2 brother Hawk (they share the same sire).  In fact I would call them HawkandIssaquah, because they were rarely apart.

Hawk and Is
Hawk and Issaquah, September 2, 2012

But when Hawk gained his own band, Issaquah was not allowed to join him and so this most likely started the mix up of his identity and the assumption that he was no longer with us.  Issaquah may also have decided to go off on his own and was not as visable.  I saw him once along Burnt Timber Road, about 3 miles from the bottom, by himself in August of 2014, and I am betting that once others start to think about their sightings of black horses over the last few years, especially at a distance, we may all realize that Issaquah was there all along.

Whatever the case, I am convienced that the horse that was spotted in late February is indeed Issaquah.  And with all of the death and disappearances of the many horses over the last few years, this news of yet another survivor is very welcome.  It’s great to see you Issaquah!

Who Will Have Foals in 2017?

jasper-band
Most of Jasper’s Band, July 2015, right to left: Jasper, Okiotak, Milicent, Ketchikan and Oklahoma, (Lariat is out of the frame).

Mares within the Pryor Wild Horse Herd, are given PZP (birth control) every year.  Each year there is a group of mares that are in the “window” of possibly being able to foal, meaning that they have not been given PZP.    And every  year, there will be some surprises from some, despite being vaccinated, and even though the below horses have not been vaccinated, it is not a guarantee that they will foal.  Some have never conceived.

We must be careful with this special herd, in 2016, there were 10 deaths, and 11 births, leaving only a population increase of 1 horses.  You can click on the post I did in October 2016, ( The Horses that have Passed) if you would like to learn more about that.  Since I wrote that post, the death of Quivira (Moenkopi foal) increased the deaths to 10.   Keeping a close watch on the population gain and adjusting the PZP accordingly, will make this herd healthy and viable to carry on into the future.  We must carefully watch which mares are vaccinated and what horses are removed and make sure that we keep an equal balance of representation for all of the horses on the range, regardless of color, or favorites.

I anticipate that 2017 will be a low birth year.  Below are the mares who may foal.
