Adendum: I take it all back. Since the letters were given, the BLM has not only not made a decision on Mercuria but have also taken Montana (only non-inbred offspring of his dam Fresia) and Moorcroft (one of Brumby’s two remaining kids – a mare who has now seen 4 out of 5 offspring removed andContinue reading “Mercuria & Paquita Update”
****The timeline has passed. In total, 37 letters were received. Thanks for your hard work! They will be delivered in person tomorrow (08/22) *** Mercuria needs your help (yes you!) and she needs it fast. The thing with removals in the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Herd is that some foals simply matter more than others. ItContinue reading “It’s Time to Rally For Mercuria!”
As a general rule, it is a very big mistake for me to start running my mouth off online when I am overly emotional. The problem with that is that we are only 1/3 of the way into an emotional year that feels like it is just going to keep building and building until everythingContinue reading “Enough is Enough”
I have a website! http://www.rachelreevesphotography.com It is a real website and everything! I’m not going to pretend it is anything fancy, but feel free to check it out if you have a free moment sometime. Now with that out of the way, on to the important stuff!
Custer is the greatest. No really Find me doesn’t like Custer. Oh, that’s right; you can’t. That is because everybody loves Custer. Our story begins in 1996. A small dark colt was born to Sitka and Shaman. You may have heard of them before. They were only the Pryor power couple of the nineties. CusterContinue reading “Custer: The Stallion, The Mystique, The Legend”
So the time has come again for another episode of Rachel Has Loads of Feelings. The BLM released a new Environmental Assessment (EA) regarding the PZP management of the Pryor wild horse herd. You can find it here. I highly recommend that you read the EA yourself. It is less than 20 pages long andContinue reading “Wait. They Wanna Do What When with Whom?!”
Fisk doesn’t make much sense to me. Some of that is normal. Not being a horse myself, they often act in ways that I do not expect, leaving a years worth of puzzles before me. Sometimes it just takes a little time for a Eureka moment to break through. Other times, there is no answerContinue reading “Fisk & His Tantrums”
Happy Thanksgiving! Or to anyone who lives outside of the United States and/or does not celebrate the holiday, happy random Thursday in November! This is a story about Standing Bear & Ariadne – two very different youngsters. Their territories are miles away from each other, yet they are still part of the same herd.
So first of all, I sincerely apologize for my lack of updates these past months. I have this tendency to take September and October off. I think it has something to do with how busy summers are and the challenges of being an extreme introvert to the point it is borderline ridiculous. Whatever causesContinue reading “Pantless in the Pryors (As It Should Be)”
Well, I found Gladiator. And maybe we should just get this out of the way right off the bat: Gladiator is a terrible band stallion. No really. I love Gladiator, but he is simply dreadful at his job. I cannot blame Fibonacci, Belle, and Spitfire for finding a different stallion to join. But maybe IContinue reading “Imperfect”
