It breaks our hearts tonight to share that since Punkin's little colt has been missing for over a week he is presumed dead.
Life in the North Dakota Badlands is never easy, especially this brutal winter.
I was honored to have met him during his short time on earth. I loved watching his sweet interactions with his mama, Punkin and his playful and curious nature with the rest of the band.
He was the essence of joy and innocence during a long, bleak winter.
And he is more than 201901.
Which is why we have named him Nanook. Nanook means polar bear in Inuit.
The Inuit word is an honor of the season in which he was born and the strength of spirit with which he fought.
Run wild and free Nanook with Atlas and all those who are there to greet you in the eternal herd.
You will never be forgotten. 💔
