Pluma and Snow Belle have good weight for mid autumn. Observing Pluma over the past few months since Snow Belle joined her and Montana, the much younger mare appears to have comfort with an older mare present.
Montana has filled out well since his “fighting days” trying to obtain a band are over. No battle wounds any more either. His entire demeanor has changed. He has lost his stress. Pretty laid back stud at this time.
****The three times I’ve been to Ridgecrest to see the gathered horses, I’ve seen Pluma’s 2019 colt. He’s doing very well and spends his time with the dominant mare that was in the band Pluma was stolen from during the gather.
