It was a glorious day on Cheyenne Flats. The perfect kind of spring day that was warm and sunny. The horses were abundant on Cheyenne Flats. Between horses on Cheyenne Flats and using the spotting scope to look over to Sykes Ridge, around 100 horses were counted. Today’s post is to give you snapshots of the Pryor Horses that were seen on Cheyenne Flats.
Galaxy’s Band: Galaxy’s band is one that was pretty visible through the winter.
Jasper’s Band: What a treat to see Jasper and his band! I hadn’t seen them since late last year.
Gringo & Tecumseh: These two stallions continue their close bond, yet there is a definite separation of bands.
Hernando’s Band: Hernando’s band now consists of the two mares Phoenix and War Bonnet. They were among a large group of horses near a water guzzler on Cheyenne Flats. Hernando circled around the others and took his band down to water.
Knight & Nimbus/Encore: Wow! This pair is so beautiful together and both so photogenic.
Garay’s Band: It is so fun seeing Garay’s growing band. His 2015 foals, Petite Colour and Patriot are perfect playmates for one another. Noble seems to fit right in with the other mares, Jacinta and Kohl.
Duke’s Band: It was so exciting to find Duke’s band down below the water guzzler. This was my first time seeing Helenium’s new foal. She is a beautiful little sorrel that reminds me of her big sister, Noble, shown in the photo above.
Mescalero’s Band: This band was grazing at the southern end of Cheyenne Flats. When I first got there, they were all resting in the sun. As I left, Cloud’s Pride was standing alone…looking very pretty!
Cappuccino’s Band: Cappuccino’s band was down below Table Top by the guzzler.
Searching Sykes: There were lots of horses on Sykes Ridge. It takes a little time, patience, and a spotting scope to identify the horses. Bands seen were: Flint (including little Quanah), Irial, Bolder, Morning Star, Hidalgo, and a couple unidentified.
All-in-all it was a very successful day on the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range.
