Hello everyone. First thing today, I would like to thank all of you for your kind words and the love you showed for Cheyenne. It never ceases to amaze me how so many people from around the world love this herd as much as we all do. Please know your love is felt in this park and is oftentimes what helps get some of us through the bad days.
Second, the park has chosen not to assign a name to Cheyenne’s filly. This is common when they do not survive and are instead assigned only a park number. Unfortunately, we have foals pass away each year and they are not always found or seen by the public. It is always hard when we do not know what they looked like or have a description to picture in our minds. This time was different though. As far as I know, I am the only person who saw her in person and I cannot let her be remembered by a number alone. I have thought long and hard about it and would like to call her Cherish. Although she had already passed away when I found her, I will always cherish the fact that I was lucky enough to know what she looked like.
Please keep in mind I am a park visitor who volunteers my time. As such, this name will not be recorded by the park. It will be used by myself and WIND for our records and by anyone else who chooses to do so.
Thanks again to all of you for your support and the love you showed for Cheyenne and her little filly.
