Pretty buckskin girl Kestrel stood napping in one place during most of my last visit. Watching, too. The world revolved around her.
Hollywood’s band still is very close to Comanche’s band. In fact, the casual observer would never realize these are two distinct families. This dynamic may or may not be unique among wild horses, but it’s fairly unique within our herd (“the pintos” come to mind, only recently separated into Ty’s band and Corazon’s band).
Baby Temple, daughter of Hollywood and Piedra, grazes her way behind Kestrel.
Kes in her wide, snowy world!
Kestrel’s handsome stallion, Comanche.
Mama Kestrel and her yearling daughter (and Comanche’s), Juniper.
Isn’t she gorgeous? Like her mama, Luna, like her firstborn daughter, Winona. (As Winona grows up, it’s incredible how much she resembles Kestrel; her likely sire is Mouse, who was removed last year.)
