Pryor Mountain...Heading into Winter
The calendar might not say that it is winter yet, but the weather tells a different story. A strong wind ushered in a cold front that has settled into the Big Horn Basin. Below zero and nearly zero weather is upon us! The wild horses have begun their seasonal migration down the mountain in search of protection and food. Snow has become an important water source. Watch for our PryorWild blogs and Facebook updates to stay informed of the winter activities of the Pryor Mountain Wild Horses.
Besa & Stiles...Heading into Winter
After several months, Stiles and Besa have settled into their new home at the Mustang Center. Both display their wild behaviors as they seek out shelter from the snow & wind, maintain a wariness around humans, and keep a watchful eye on their surroundings.
Join us on Facebook! Our summer intern, Kassi, designed this original photo to serve as the image for our Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center Facebook page. We fill this with up-to-date and historical information about the horses and their Pryor home. We encourage you to search for us and "Like" us to show your support for this magnificent animals.
La Nina: There's a new foal in the Dryhead! Bakken finally foaled in October, and is now with Blizzard, along with Cascade. The newest addition to herd brings the total foal count 17, with 15 surviving.

July 24, 2011- Tragic Accident of two Pryor Stallions
Due to an irresponsible, intoxicated driver we lost two of our stallions up on the mountain in the lower Dryhead area near the entrance to the Wild Horse Range. The stallions that we lost were, Harem stallion; Admiral-2000-2011, and his son Kapitan- 2010-2011. We will miss them very much. Admiral's mares; Seneca- Kapitans mother, and Hightail- Admirals mother; are both fine and have been joined by Jesse James and Hickok and seem to be living in the same area near the entrance of the range. Check on the blog for further information.

August 2011 - Foster Horse Program
In May 2010 The Pryor Mountain Wild Mustang Center introduced our Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Foster Program. We have had an incredible response to this program and wish to thank all of the supporters for donating to this program.
The Center is committed to preserving the Pryor Mountain Wild Horses. In order to achieve this goal, the lands of the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range must be preserved as well. We invite you to participate in these goals by joining this Foster Program. For a donation of $30.00, supporters will receive a Foster Horse packet for one of the four available Foster horse's of their choice. One of our Foster horses, "Admiral" was tragically killed on July 24th 2011; However he is still available as a memorial Foster horse. The donations will be directly applied to range improvement projects that will help ensure the health of the wild horses. From each $30.00 donation, $20.00 will be allocated for range improvement projects. Examples of range improvement projects include reseeding, developing new water sources, improving educational signage, and new signs advising drivers of speed limits and horse crossings.
