A large group of horses were grazing in the Cirque. Nancy and two friends from Massachusetts were sitting down on the bottom of the Cirque watching the horses. Morning Star’s band was close by as was Prince’s band. Horizon, Felina’s foal, discovered a new possible playmate in Heather, Ireland’s 2007 foal.
After a short time with Heather, Horizon headed off on an adventure.
He walked quite a ways from his family.
Horizon went as far as the other side of the Cirque. Bolder snaked his band away. A 2013 note, Sapo’s 2007 filly, Hataalii, is now with Morning Star.
When he got too far away from his family, Horizon came running back in a frenzy. The interesting thing is the whole time Horizon was running to find his family, Felina kept a close eye on him. But she made no attempt to let him know where she was at first. It’s almost like she was teaching him a lesson of the perils of roaming too far away from her.
But he couldn’t find his family, so he kept running…
After running and running, Horizon stopped. He had a very fearful look on his face..lost!
At one point he came quite near us and just looked at us with that sad look of helplessness.
Finally, Felina decided he had had enough. She raised her head and gave a quiet whinny.
In a flash, he recognizes her call and comes dashing back to her.
Horizon finds his mother and his band.
Horizon and Felina…reunited.
And now six years later, Horizon has grown into a strong and beautiful Pryor stallion. He has a band of a young mare, Juniper and the veteran mare, Tonapah.
