Radio Show Interview & Update on Horses Removed

Listen to the Ginger’s  radio interview with Bob Oliver of Monterey’s Quantum Leap Radio show- now downloadable here.

It is bittersweet to report on the horses who were removed from the Pryors last month, but I would like to report good news from every adopter I’m in contact with. Cloud’s daughter, Rain, who now lives in Virginia and her adopter were recently featured in their local paper, read the article here. Cloud’s grandkids, Image and Ember, are together and doing very well in Ohio. Two of his other grandchildren, Arrow and Bolder’s daughter, Sage, are in Colorado and are coming along well in their training. The adaptability of these young horses is amazing! Shaman’s granddaughter, Summer, is in Montana and is doing great- as are the grulla daughters of Beauty and Seattle and Sacajawea and Blizzard. Ginger has Cloud’s buckskin brother, Sax, in Colorado and he’s doing great and is the youngest member of a six horse band now. 

All but two of the older horses were rescued thanks to your generosity with the Freedom Fund (donations still needed) and the work of so many to keep these 4 bands together in addition to the bachelor stallion, Floyd.  Conquistador is with his mare, Cavalitta, and Shane, Bo and Trigger are with their mares. Bo’s filly foal daughter is also with the band. Ginger will be going to Montana soon to see the horses- photos coming then! 

Both were removed in the September 2009 roundup

    • Janet Ferguson Says:

      There was a black stallion, Stiles, sent to New Mexico, I think, from the Pryor Mustang group???

      • jan eaker Says:

        Yes, Stiles went to NM, as a gelding, and Meeteetse is in CO, she is a blue roan older mare, her picture is on the Pryor MT WH site,

  2. Karen L. Says:

    TCF, Thank you for reporting on the lives and progress of the horses adopted or sold after the Pryor Roundup. To know that their health and well-being is intact despite the stress they experienced is inspiring and comforting. Let us all continue forward to end the roundups and work to pass S.1579, ROAM!

    • jan eaker Says:

      Yes, thank you TCF for the update, and we need to not stop in our efforts for ROAM and an end to the gathers, so many horses slated to be removed;

  3. Janet Ferguson Says:

    The foal photo, above is wonderful! Those blue flowers. . . . . and tiny four-legged dancers

  4. Christine Says:

    I’m curious about the horses in CO – are they in training with one particular trainer? Is Sax being gentled as well, or was he just turned loose to grow up for another year?

    I’m really looking forward to the pictures of the horses on the ranch in Montana! Will they mind other visitors later on?

    • thecloudfoundation Says:

      Hi Christine,
      They’re all being trained by different people, Sax is being trained by Ginger, I’m training Arrow, and Sage’s adopter is a super trainer. The horses in Montana are on a remote private ranch so visitation is limited there but we’ll post photos soon! Thanks- Makendra

      • Christine Says:

        Cool! I trained my mustang myself (with a mentor overseeing) and it was one of the most wonderful experiences of my life.

  5. Marilyn Wargo Says:

    Thanks for news and come back and tell us more when you can. I’d say we miss hearing from you. Good luck out there and take care. mar

  6. Marilyn Wargo Says:

    Deb Little, wonderful work, glad your path brought you to wild horses. mar
