Today confirms Nutmeg’s band is down to half the size it was at the beginning of the month.
05-03-19: Nutmeg and Wild Star had their 2015, 2016, 2017 colts and 2018 filly living with them. Wild Star and Ridgecrest were keeping a bachelor band away.
05-08-19: Observed the 2018 filly alone, with one of those bachelors.
05-15-19: Observed the band with the three colts.
05-17-19: Observed the 2015 and 2016 by themselves, together.
05-25-19: Observed Nutmeg (still pregnant) with Wild Star and the 2017 colt only.
***That the colts stayed as along as they did with their birth band was unusual. Several year old fillies are stolen at a year old, when they go into season.
