Nicols is a 2014 stallion out of Shale and Gray Ghost. This handsome boy looks so much like his late sire, we've been waiting anxiously for him to acquire a mare.
While he seemed content to hang out with his pal and fellow bachelor, Cloud, in the spring of 2020 we saw him relentlessly dog Arrowhead's band in hopes of winning a mare.
Happily in the autumn of 2020, his persistence finally paid off.
Young mare Hestia (2018 Smokey x Frontier) came into heat and was soon picked up by Nicols. Time will tell how long he can keep this young mare.
Nichols has a double band with Teton as they are often found together.
