We thank everyone who donated to make it possible for us to save these foals and to keep travelling into wild horse areas to check on them.
We continue to monitor the areas where the horses live and record the benefits that they bring to the environment. Firebreak tracks, grazing down fireload, soil tilling for regrowth, soil fertilising and indigenous grass seed spreading, etc....
Researching our herd behaviour is also important. Gelded stallions become guardians for new foals and are diligent about it, giving mares confidence to relax. Family groups are very loyal and sharing. Mares form girls groups and geldings go off on private adventures but always come back to the herd. Grazing patterns ensure wild herds have a balanced diet, green or dry feed. Best places to hide from the heat, where the best breezes blow, the best trees for shelter.
Wild horses are very clear about which area they own, which territory is theirs.
Here is our new foal Mistral and other foals we found.
