October 31, 2007 – The Pryor Mountains

As requested, here is panoramic photograph I just took of the Pryors. (It’s pretty big, so click the picture for a full version.) It’s hazy today, so the quality isn’t that great. The snow received yesterday has already melted quite a bit; it had been down Sykes Ridge yesterday afternoon.


Also, I took that same picture and wrote some general locations on it to give an idea of where the range lies on the mountains. The range is on East Pryor Mountain. There aren’t any wild horses on the West Pryor/Big Pryor mountain anymore, though I have talked to many people who used to see horses there quite often. On East Pryor I have a little more detail in labeling areas that I often talk about here. The Bighorn Canyon area is just on the other side of Sykes Ridge.


I am planning to make a nicer looking map and view of the Pryors to post here sometime, but until then this at least gives an idea of what I talk about.

  4. Hi there,

    As you see now, I have put up some pictures of Chino’s family. I’ll likely be doing some more family-oriented entries as we go into the winter so that people can see how the horses change in appearance over the winter. Of course, this all depends on which ones we can actually find as their winter range is pretty remote.
    Thanks again!

  5. Matt,
    Love your blog! My wife and I have been up the mountain 4 times in the past 3 years. We were fortunate enough be up there in July, 2007, at the same time Ginger was up there filming. We were just up there a week ago, on the weekend of July 12/13 – 2008. For the first time inany of our trips, we found Flint. He was hanging out with several other bachelors. Got lots of great pics of him and the other horses. Got pics of Cloud and his family, Prince and Electra, Teton and Phoenix, Red Raven and his family, and Bolder and his band. I’d love to share them with you and/or the other readers of your blog. I’d like your help in identifying several of the stallions and families we didn’t know. Let me know! Larry
