Ghost Dancer's Shadow
Up on the high reaches of the Sanctuary, summer winds are a constant, sending light clouds scudding across the sky, and their shadows racing across mountain meadows. This land was one of the Sanctuary’s original BLM mares Ghost Dancer’s domain and is where we are most likely to find her daughter. Ghost Dancer’s Shadow, a dun and white paint born on the open range, is as shy and elusive as her mother. Scan the groups of wild horses grazing those high prairies and you are likely to see one animal standing on the edge of the herd watching your every move. No eagle soars about the rimrocks, no coyote slinks through the tall grasses in search of cottontails, no prairie dogs bark warning of approaching danger, without Shadow being aware of all happenings. Like her mother Shadow hates to be looked at. One has only to glance at her and she seems to feel your gaze. Her snort of fear is a thunderclap sending her band into instant flight. It is this wildness inherent in her genes that has protected wild horses from danger throughout the centuries.
