Dear Friends of Cloud;
Last week we spent three days on the Pryors with the wild horses and were thrilled to see so many of the 2009 foals. On top of the mountain we found Cloud's stepson, Flint, with his mare and new son! Flint won the blaze-faced grulla mare, Feldspar, last spring. He lost Feldspar to Prince during the summer, but won her back this spring before the birth of their son. We named the darling grulla colt, Jasper. He is a delight and reminds me of his Flint as a baby.

Cloud has had a few changes in his family band as well. His daughter and grand-daughter, Firestorm and Ember, are now with the coyote-dun band stallion, Jackson. When we walked out to get a closer look at Firestorm and Ember, we had our biggest surprise of the trip. Cloud's dun mare was with Jackson, too. Beside the mare was a tiny foal who took my breath away. She looks like Cloud as a foal, not necessarily in color, but in her lovely conformation and bright expression. We named her Windflower. Oddly, the pair has been wandering around on their own for nearly a month, and they weren't even with Jackson earlier in the day, so we'll see if this liaison lasts. Because of the cool, rainy weather many of the horses were far down the mountain, including Cloud and his family. I'm hoping Cloud will try to win back the mare and little Windflower when he comes to the mountaintop. Stay tuned!



P.S. The third program in the Cloud series, Cloud: Challenge of the Stallions, will premier on PBS stations nationwide on October 25th on NATURE. We'll remind you closer to the air date and soon we will have a sneak preview on our website too. It is our hope that these programs continue to share the beauty of wild horses families and will help to keep them in the wild for many generations to come.

I think that they should have named Windflower something else. She's like a spitting image of her father. She should be like, Suncloud, or something.
