Horse Spotlight – Mare Papoose
Hello everyone! I was fortunate enough to spend the entire day in the park today checking several bands and even had a surprise visit from Indy and Granite’s Boy! It was cold and foggy, but a successful day. While I will share today’s photos with you soon, I would like to feature another horse from the herd with this post.
Tonight’s ?Horse Spotlight? is 2010 Mare, Papoose! She is currently running in Arrowhead’s band. She is out of Mare, Pretty Girl by Red Face. She has one offspring living in the park, the gorgeous bachelor stallion, Gunner. He is her 2014 colt by Mystery. Papoose was in Blaze’s band for several years before his passing in 2017. After he died, Ollie Jr. took several of his mares, including Papoose. For the rest of the year, Arrowhead would slowly take Blaze’s former band from Ollie Jr. until he had only Papoose and her young filly. By the end of 2017, Arrowhead would finally take Papoose and she was reunited with her former bandmates. In the spring of 2018, her filly was removed and adopted.
Papoose is a gentle mare who often keeps to herself or can be seen close to her buddy, Little Brother’s Girl. I have always had a soft spot for her and feel she is one of the most beautiful horses in this herd. Below are a few photos of her and her family I have taken over the past few years. I hope you enjoy this look at the beautiful Papoose! Thanks, everyone!
