A large Salt Wells band from Fall of last year. The funny looking one on the left is actually a curious pronghorn. Many (muddy) palominos in this group.

  4. cee Says:

    The first thing I noticed was all the palominos – and the buckskin – in the group! Love the photo!

  5. celeste Says:

    Thank you for sharing another wonderful photo! I love that curious pronghorn sneaking into the picture – too cute.

    Do you know how well camoflague they are to their environment? And we want to wreck this because? How about humans learning to adapt to their environment by watching animals?

    Pronghorn are totally skittish by nature. I saw a few a couple of years ago in WY and if you moved just one or two steps off into flight they went. And we were ways away from them.

    I call the antelope/pronghorns “guard-a-lopes” because it’s just like you said Margaret, you move a bit and they’re gone…and generally, that sets the horses in motion too. But, this one seemed to share the horses curiosity. 🙂

    Thanks everyone for your comments! 🙂

    Funny since the BLM says they must remove the wild horses so the pronghorn can live on the same range as the horses needed to be removed from. Again it shows the lies the BLM tells taxpayers for the removals. Seems the horses and pronghorns are living well together. Makes me want to go HUMMMMMM????

    you should show this to the Blm and ask why is the antelope grazing near the mustangs and not running in fear that they may eat all the food. Maybe because it is cows and sheep that do this not wild mustangs.

  10. Laura Says:

    I think it’s legal to hunt pronghorn, right? That’s why they might not be considered a “problem”.

    I love the photo, what a lovely and healthy group of horses! Thank you for sharing!!
