As the sun came up this morning, we observed Crema and Hope with the brothers, Magnet and Ridgecrest. The two that initially “stole” the three fillies from Easter.
Crema: Eleven months old. This is the fifth band she’s lived in.
Hope: Eight months old. As she was with Pluma’s band in February and back with Easter in March, this makes the seventh band she’s been in.
Natures way of ensuring a viable, healthy herd, “breaking up” bands.
The fillies still stay close together, yet appeared comfortable with the band.
Tracker, whose spent his eleven months as the only juvenile in the band was very interested in the much smaller Hope. When he got a little too personal, she stood up for herself and got right back in his space.
