"In Cloud's remote mountain wilderness we have a perfect opportunity to step back and watch nature call the shots. Predators and daunting weather are limiting the herd size—naturally," she states. "Yet, human over management is jeopardizing their future survival. We could lose Cloud and his herd forever, unless we're willing to stand up for them now."
The non- profit Cloud Foundation is dedicated to preventing the extinction of Cloud's herd through education, media events and programming, and public involvement. The Foundation is also determined to protect other wild horse herds on public lands, especially isolated herds with unique characteristics and historical significance.
Cloud was rounded up for the third time in September of 2009 despite a huge public effort to try and stop this unnecessary roundup. Cloud and his band were released two days after they were captured but Cloud's grandchildren and his daughter were removed along with more than 50 others, leaving the Pryors herd at only 125 horses. Cloud is now back in the wild & we continue our work to preserve what wild horses value most- their freedom and their families.
