Holding facilities for wild horses, like the one in Reno NV, contain hundreds of mustangs that have been taken from the open range. Many mares will give birth at the facility. It is natural for foals to lay down and sleep, even in the wild.
It is disturbing, however, that recent information has surfaced about the fact that over 577 horses between 2010 and 2012, have been taken to a local rendering plant. (A rendering company will pick up and dispose of dead horses.) The BLM reported only 241 horses from their facility. The majority of those horses were foals.

Some of you may have gone to the National Auto Museum during your stay in Reno, NV. The Exhibit on the 1908 New York to Paris Auto Race has some very interesting journals and pictures. Of course, automobiles were supposed to replace the need for horses; however, throughout the race, horses were used to assist the mechanical beasts along their journey. Teams of horses pulled the vehicle across waterways, out of snow and mud, and even ran along side just for fun.
The Thomas Flyer traveled through Asia and Russia where the photo shows a herd of wild horses accompanying the horseless carriage! The horses, both domestic and wild, were an important aspect and essential feature of the success for the completion of the race.

Spring is in the air, and young stallions are feeling their oats (or dried grass!)
Small bachelor bands of young mustangs can be seen playing and fighting. Similar to young male humans, juvenile wild horses are looking to find the perfect mare to start their family. At the same time, precious new foals in the band bring big smiles to all who get a chance to see them. Like Sonny Boys Tours on Facebook to find out what’s going on with our magnificent American Mustang of the West!

New-born foals gracing the landscape give us such pleasure to see. New year, new spring and new life gives us a renewed sense of wonder and discovery. What a treat to be surprised by this little foal with his mare and stallion father nearby as we drove along the canyon. The foaling season, from March to July, gives us new hope in nature. Sometimes nature can bring unexpected changes too. Sonny, now 18 months old, who is becoming a strong young stallion, was born October 8.
New hope with possible new agreements between the Department of Agriculture and the Advocate groups are in the works. Please visit and Like Sonny Boys Tours Facebook page to find out more. Also available at www.RenoWild HorseTours.com website under Sonny’s Store, you can purchase the DVD with stunning pictures of mustangs and the informative narrative as heard on your tour.
