201804SentinelMPennJesse JamesApril 15, 2018Jesse James and his mares, Cecelia and Penn, are perhaps the most elusive band in the Pryors. So it was a thrill for Nancy Cerroni to find, not only the band, but a new foal with Penn. This is a genetically important foal as it connects the Forest Service horses and the Dryhead horses. The colt was named Sentinel mainly in honor of Jesse’s sire, Admiral, and brother, Kapitan. In addition, the name represents the other family members who were named to honor the Spanish and Native American influences on the herd.
