Gray Ghost changed worlds in 2018 in the fall of his life and the fall of the year. The Gray Ghost Collection was created to honor his contribution to the wild horse world! He was born in the year 2002, a mere sixteen years he made an impression on the thousands who encountered him on their drive through the loop road in that beautiful backdrop of Theodore Roosevelt National Park!
“I am a part of all that I have met.” ~Lord Tennyson
He will always have a place in the heart of those who see him and he could be spotted on ridgelines along the loop road from mm15 to Paddock Creek and all the way up to Coal Vein road.
This image, Wild Legend, was captured in April of 2015 on the Fly Without Wings journey. He had just become a bachelor, as he had lost his long time harem to two bachelor, brother’s Teton and Wild Rye. It was heartbreaking to see Gray Ghost without his harem and the sun streaming through his glorious mane, somehow took away from the sadness of his days as a band stallion having come to a halt.
This morning he was descending from a butte making his way near the loop road, quietly grazing and quite undisturbed by the humans who had stopped to take his picture and admire his dignified demeanor.
