Tomorrow, May 29, is the birthday of Cloud who left us in 2016  (I think that is the year).  Born in 1995, Cloud brought attention to the plight of wild horses throughout the west.  He runs with the Heavenly Herd now and has left his progeny for us to marvel over.  Amazingly, his dam Phoenix, still lives in the Pryor Mountains.  So grateful that Cloud was able to live out his life wild and free.  Always in our hearts, Cloud.

Yes.......he is how I learned of the wild Mustangs and he is loved around  the world. I sponser a wild Mustang stallion in Minn, I named Cloud for him.........he is in a sanctuary of wild mustangs, saved by Fleet of Angels, who found homes for the 907 of them rescued about 3 yrs back fr SD...........heart

How wonderful that you sponsor a Mustang;  thank you for helping these incredible animals who are treasured by so many of us.  I remember that huge rescue effort a few yrs. back.  What a tremendous effort on the part of many people to help so many horses!

yes,.............it was a huge process to find homes for all and in Jan,.........I think, with a blizzard at times and 20* below. Chilly Pepper (Palomino) Armstrong helped with sorting in the fields. remember Honey Bandit, the foal she saved? Sure it was here, too. This last group of stallions has 7 blind, or partially and all over 20 yrs.........19 of them ,as one was found deceased a couple of months ago. They are still wild,as it is a sanctuary, so no vets and feeders had no idea he was ill, just found one morning and they are watched closely.

Yes I do recall some details, incl. how Honey Bandit's name was inspired.  Such an epic save by dedicated people.

yes.........glad they did save.........and may be wrong, but think all Mustangs

Didn't know it was Cloud's birthday.......thank youheart_eyes            He is still my Hero for all Wild Mustangs in the West and those saved because of his fame....he has a large family now with gr-sons and gr-daughters and Phoenix.........star

Hope that you and any who read this thread will do what you can to save the BLM mustangs fr round-ups and extinction............more round-ups already planned. Jan Schakowski,R Illinois just re-wrote the bill to save these as last one did not get to the floor        HB 3355

Thinking of Cloud as we remember his birthday tomorrow, May 29.  I have read that his dam, Phoenix, died not long ago.  Have not researched this, but she and Cloud lived wonderful long lives in the Pryor Mtns.  Due to Ginger Kathryns documentation of their lives they have inspired many to fight for the protection of our wild mustangs.

yes............and I am one of the Cloud suppporters,as learned all about the Wild Mustangs fr Ginger's Docs of them, so started in about '07 to try to save them..........after helping stop the Illinois slaughter house. 

And then  named my supported mustang in Wells Creek ,Minn, Cloud, for him.....had much dissent over that...........sad that he and his Dam, Phoenix, are gone, but did not know about his b'day...........so thanks for that.

Ginger witnessed his birth and recorded........heart
