Preserving the gene pool of the Pryor Mountain wild horses
If the mustang population at the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range were to ever die catastrophically, the horsesí gene pool and Spanish heritage would not be lost thanks to the efforts of the Pryor Mountain Mustang Breeders Association. The group formed on April 7, 1992 with the mission to preserve the wild herdís genetics.
The group adopted its first horses from the wild herd population during one of the Bureau of Land Managementís round-ups, which have been used to manage the herdís growth. The group closely follows the ancestry of its animals to prevent inbreeding, says Dale Hartman, owner of the Double D Ranch in Lovell, Wyo., where the breeding horses live. Hartman keeps a few mares born as a result of the breeder associationís efforts if the horseís conformation displays desired Colonial Spanish American lineage characteristics, such as heavy bone structure, convex or concave heads and a low croup.
