Brutus's Band

Happy Friday Everyone! Day after day is spent scouting out here for the 19 Bands that call this massive National Park home. As families are found, we record them and count them in the ‘found’ column of our records. Every year, it’s a puzzle to see which Band is found last. This year that Band happened to be Stallion Brutus. Day after day, territory after territory eliminated until one fine day, luck is on our…

Gray Ghost's Band

For all you Gray Ghost lovers out there, I got to spend a wonderful evening out with this guy and his family on Sunday. He’s thin and a bit vulnerable with both Stallions Granite’s Boy and Wildrye hot on his trail to try and win his mares. While I was with him that evening, he had quite the unexpected encounter with Wildrye and I was able to record it all and will share it very…

Frontier's Band

Tiffany and I set out today for another great adventure and what a day we had! With some really great scouting by Tiffany and a whole lot of luck, we were able to not only find Frontier’s Band, but actually got all the way out to them in some pretty challenging terrain. Tiffany wanted to check on Smokie’s new Filly and I hadn’t yet seen her so how exciting for us to find them in…

Gray Ghost's Band

That is Stallion Gray Ghost who takes a moment to look up and take note of his family Band that not so long ago belonged to Stallion Gary. Enjoy your day and this view of a ‘day in the life’ out here in Theodore Roosevelt National…

Mystery's Band

It really is true that a picture is worth a thousand words! These two crack me up as I watched the dynamic unfold in front of me! Pictured is the yearling Colt out of Ember’s Girl of Mystery’s Band that we call Braveheart. He had been sleeping for quite some time so when he woke up from his nap, he thought he would do a little exploring! Sidekick’s Band was very nearby and I watched…

Mystery's Band

Had an absolutely great, yet harrowing, day yesterday due to really sloppy, wet conditions! It’s a miracle neither Tiffany or I ate it by slipping in the wet clay or completely wiping out trying to get from her to there! Trying to maneuver through that kind of stuff sure does provide for some good laughs and great times! Despite our challenges, we managed to see and record 4 Bands yesterday! Mystery, Red Face, Sidekick and…

Teton's Band

What started out as a gloomy and cold day, turned out to be pretty fantastic as the day went on…I always say one of my favorite things to do with the individual Bands is to spend the day napping with them. Well, that’s exactly what we got to do with Teton’s Band today! As I’ve reported, it’s been really cold this past week and so it’s not uncommon to see the horses try to get…

Theodore Roosevelt National Park

This is the cold, hard reality of what Theodore Roosevelt National Park looks like today. However, they have opened the loop road and Tiffany and I, being the die hards we are, are heading in to see what we can bring you today! Wish us luck! Winter wonderland on April 9th…go figure! That is the Little Missouri river that runs through the park. Neat to see it open and flowing despite the frozen conditions. Stay…

Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Ahhhhh….I’m in my happy place! =) Spent a great afternoon with Tiffany and how fun it was to be back together again! Saw 4 Bands of horses but wanted to share this spectacular view we were graced with at the end of the day… a golden eagle feasting on a frozen deer carcus. So interesting to see the eagle slowly makes it’s way back to this region where they seem to now be thriving! And…
