September 11, 2009 – Trip to the Mountain

I made a trip to the mountain today before going out of town for the weekend. I will be leaving soon, and so I have to cut this short and hold off putting any photographs up.

I was able to see many horses on the mountain today. Some of these were ones that had been gathered, but I also saw some for the first time since the gather had taken place. Some of the foals are still looking a little tender when they walk, but I really think that they will be fine. I found that Bacardi and her foal, who had been separated from Baja during the gather, are now with Coronado. It will be interesting to see if they end up staying with him or if they will end up back with Baja eventually. I spent some time watching Brumby, and she seems to be all the way back to normal. It’s definitely different being up there with so many horses absent.

I really am sorry for not being able to answer any emails sent to the Center. I just have not had a chance. I have received a number of inquiries on adopting a horse from here. This is great to see this much interest! To get more information on adopting a wild horse from here, there are a couple things I would recommend. Going to the National Wild Horse Adoption Day Web Site ( will provide you with some specific information on adopting a wild horse from the BLM. Also, you can call the BLM’s adoption coordinator, Nancy Bjelland, at (406) 896-5222 for further information, applications, and the like. 54 horses will be up for adoption. 3 of these are mares that will also have foals with them. The adoption will be on September 26th at Britton Springs, and so there is still time to prepare to adopt a Pryor horse at that time.

I will post more updates next week. Thank you for all of your time and support!
