Grady’s Extras

Hello! Here is a look at a band I have not shared in a while and an update to go along with it. I had been trying to sit with Grady and his band for several weeks, but it was not working out. Yesterday, despite the huge winds, I decided to try one more time. Once in their area of the Park, I did get eyes on the band fairly quickly, but something was off. There were too many horses. I took off hiking to the band and hoped they would stay when I got there. Once I got closer I took out my camera just in case this was a short visit. You can see in the second photo below that I had quite few eyes looking back at me and some of them do not belong in this band. I am not sure when it happened, but Grady was now holding all of Wildrye’s band along with his own.
After leaving Grady, I drove to a high spot to see if I could locate Wildrye. In the distance, I could see a gray horse near the south fence…Wildrye’s area. Bachelor stallion Buster has claimed that area as his own as of late and so I assumed it was him at first but soon realized the horse was too dark. So off I went on another hike to see if that horse was in fact Wildrye. Once at the fence, I could see Buster on the hill across from me but not the other horse. I noticed him briefly look at something below the hill he was on so I walked around to the other side and there was Wildrye!
Wildrye chased off Buster shortly after I arrived so I am unsure of why he lost his band. Sometimes strange things happen out here but I do not think this is over just yet. Wildrye is a fierce stallion and in time he will likely make a play to get them back.
Below is a look at Grady’s original band. I will share more photos of Wildrye and his (former) band later on and will update you if anything changes. Thanks, everyone!
