The priority at that point was to get the foal out and back to his family. It was a holiday weekend, the BLM office was closed, and there was no cell service in the area anyway, so it was up to us to help him.

At this point he was bright eyed and active, and watched us as we worked.
Renowned photographer, author and Wild Horse Freedom Federation Advisory Board member, Carol Walker has just returned from witnessing a rerun, less the helicopter, of the BLM’s 2009 attack and assault upon Cloud’s herd in the Pryor Mountains.

It is with great sadness I report to you the death of the magnificent band stallion, Conquistador. We were shocked to learn of his passing from our dear friend, Effie Orser, who noticed that she did not see him while visiting the scenic pasture where the three bands (Conquistador, Trigger, and Shane) live just outside of Wilsall, Montana. She searched and found his body in a small, grassy gully.
