Meet Pretty Sky
Today, Pretty Sky remains part of Chief’s band with her mother Cinnamon and 5 other mares. Pretty Sky is social with humans and has a wonderful disposition, traits she has passed on to her two fillies. Her dorsal stripe, thick multi-colored mane and tail and pronounced leg striping are all display her Iberian descent.
These Sulphur Springs horses are found in Utah in the Sulphur Springs Herd Management Area. Of all the horses free ranging in America today, these horses have DNA the most similar to the primitive Iberian horses known as the Sorraia. These horses are being preserved in Portugal today. Due to their remote location in Utah’s Needle Range, they have retained their unique pheno-typing but are at risk with less than 400 left in the wild.
