Santa Fe and her filly, Sloan, are both healthy. She “*joined” Pluma and Montana’s band in April after she foaled. Based on prior observations of a mare brought into an established band, Santa Fe appears comfortable while exhibiting “normal” behavior of getting along with the other females while keeping her distance, and letting the new stud know to keep his.
When Santa Fe foaled in April, Montana “*stole” her and her foal, before they made it back to Promises’ band. Truly, this was a good event. Promise is Santa Fe’s sire. The odds are, he’s also Sloan’s sire. Montana has no blood relation. Stealing Santa Fe will help the Red Rock horses maintain a healthy herd.
