    Hello Ginger,

    watching the wild mustangs to me is like watching a piece of what heaven onearth should be like , really, I really identify with the horses and my own freedom and need to feel free and not locked in . I wish there wasmore you could do in the name of their heritage and gene pool to keep more horses free their. we are the worst country for freedom these days and getting along with nature and the relationship with all creatures. I would so fight for these horses . Cloud has the most amazing character and genes. he is so strong and smart and noble and personifies the right attributes in a lead herd horse, galliant , rebillious, defiant, smart , protective and most important love. 17 years is an amazing ride for a wild horse. I hope he lasts another 17 his son , Echo is so beatiful too. I hope we can help keep them wild. it represents us and our dreams and needs to.

    We’re viewing Episode 3 for the first time. What is the genetic relationship between Cloud and Shaman? Are we looking at kin altruism or reciprocal altruism?

    Thanks.

    Thanks Ginger for your update and all of your amazing stories of our beloved Cloud and all the wild horses of the Pryor. Stay safe Majestic Ones ~

  • Keith Winfree

    This is an amazing saga. We have a much fuller life understanding so many different animals. What a great video. Pray to YHWH for a special horse and family.

  • Alicia

    Thank you SO VERY MUCH for keeping us “Cloud Lovers” up to date on him. Even though it has been 17 years, Cloud is still a very beautiful looking boy! I hope that you can keep us updated on Cloud for as long as he is alive & also on his foals until the very last one. I love watching videos of Cloud!

  • Cecilia

    Saw the program last night. Love horses more every day. But more need to know the reality of Horse Slaughtering and the bill pending S.1176 that would stop Slaughtering for good in all US. Would like to see on any future nature program on the topic of horses, polititions reaction when asked their opinion considering 80%of US do not support Horse Slaughtering.

    My local PBS claimed that there was a new episode on this Wednesday, but it turned out to be a re-showing of the one in 2009, so was really bummed. Came to the site to see what was up and if a new one was coming.
    So glad to see the short footage of the herd and to get an update. Enjoyed them so much! Even Attenborough couldn’t have done a better job!
    Any plans for a 4th episode?

  • Andrea

    thanks Ginger i love “Cloud”’s story keep up the blog

  • Deanna

    What will it take to stop authorities from interfering with Cloud and his family and other wild horses? Where does the threat come from? What can we do to reverse this behavior? This horse is so smart and so brave, he defied the helicopter trying to retrieve his family members. We have to respect that. I am ready to carry the banner for Cloud.

  • Judy M

    Thank you for fighting for the mustangs. And thank you for the updates on Cloud and his family. I do what I can in donations, petitions and emails to Salazar and his crew who are so bent on destroying the wild mustang. Keep up the good work you do Ginger. We don’t want to lose the wild mustang.

  • Hope Allen

    Dear Ginger,

    I first watched the begianing of the cloud series when I was in second grade and loved it. I am 15 now and have the first three cloud DVDs. I love the show and wish I was rich so I could by a bunch of land and make a wild horse resever for horse that are being rounded up and losing there freedom. Alas I do not, and hopefully when I grow up I will be able to offer more support to help wild horses and Clouds Legacy stay free.

  • Stephanie

    Its a shame the horses were forced out of their home and I really wish that we (mankind in general) would stop pushing species out the homes in which they have lived for a very long time. I really hope Echo is not removed, he’s nearly the spitting image of his grandsire and when Cloud dies (even though I dread the fact that the day is nearing, hopefully he live a very long time though) there will need to be a stallion of his coloring. Echo would be perfect, he has (from what you’ve shown us) Cloud’s spirit. Please continue with your wonderful work!

    Thanks for the update. I keep up with Cloud and all the wild horses out there often and I love any news I can get, (good news). Isnt a shame that after all these years we are still hearing about the mistreatment of those magnificent animals. The people in charge should be ashamed of themselves. Its an awful thing that the people intrusted to manage our public lands are so biased and obviously in bed with the large cattle and livestock owners. I look at the 3 films about Cloud as much as I did when I 1st got them and I have turned on many people to the plight of the wid[ld horses and boros on our public lands. Several have bough the Cloud videos also and love them as much as I do. Why cant we as people leave something wild and unspoiled by our so called managing. There wont be anything left for us to manage if things keep going the way they are. We have to put our stamp on everything! Thats a shame. Thank you and the people who constantly keep an eye on things out there or there is no telling what would be done. Sax is so smart! These are clearly not dumb animals that deserve the mistreatment that has been constantly been forced on them. Boulder, Diamond, Redraven,Velvet, Electra, Flint and of Cloud and so many more that I have come to love deserve to live as they were ment to live….FREE. Thank you MS. Katherns, I DO love your work. Long may you keep doing it.

    Thanks so much for the video update. It would be great if there was a way to make the link to it easier to find on the PBS site.

  • Marie

    I watched the movie War Horse tonight and thought of Cloud. So, Googled and found this update. Thanks, Ginger, for your dedication to the wild horses.

  • Mary Collier

    Was wondering will there be a 4th eposode of cloud stallion. Please reply thanks

  • Malin van der Beek

    I’m from Holland and had recently purchased the 3 DVD set about Cloud. This horse and his family are truely amazing and have touched my heart. I was so happy to find this video update, his son echo is also so beautiful and I hope the entire family can continue to live there in freedom and do well. I’d love to keep updated about them so I’ll go and look at the site to see if I can fine something to keep me posted.

    Warm regards, Malin van der Beek

    I have watched 2 episodes of Cloud and it has really touched my heart. It’s incredibly beautiful and so very heartbreaking to see that us humans still hasn’t learned not to interfere with nature. These horses have been there for so long and have the right as any living being to be left alone and be able to roam free.

    What can be done to help and secure the horses that are left? It’s a dream of mine to go over and see these magnificent animals. Thank you Ginger for giving us these incredible films and for all the good work that you do.

My friends (Natalie and Courtney) were exited when I told them Cloud was having b day on June 1, 2013. Am I right is he having a B day? We are in 3 grade. We love that horse!
