Meet the Mustangs: Harriet

By Deb Sutherland, Volunteer

(March 2, 2021) There were over a hundred wild horses in the canyon the day Harriet (aka Little April Showers) was born on April 1, 2013. The Virginia Range was dotted with the colors of pintos, blue and red roans, bays, blacks, grays, buckskins! Even the black and white stallion, Canyon Phantom, was there with his pinto and roan family. There was a newborn pinto resting in the sage that caught my eye.
