Happy 19th Birthday, Cloud!


On May 29th, 1995, a very special foal was born in the Pryor Mountains of Montana.  Even then, filmmaker Ginger Kathrens knew he was special.  Today, on Cloud’s 19th birthday, so much has changed.  Ginger is now an Emmy® award winner and Cloud is an ambassador for all of America’s mustangs living on public lands.
Ginger has followed Cloud’s herd since before his birth and has witnessed what life is like for wild horses in the Pryor Mountains for the past two decades. The pale palomino stallion has always been released when rounded up by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) because of his rare color. Many of his family members have not been as lucky and have been removed by the BLM through helicopter stampedes or bait trapping.  Cloud has been documented in three films, “Cloud: Wild Stallions of the Rockies,” “Cloud’s Legacy: The Wild Stallion Returns,” and the latest film, “Cloud: Challenge of the Stallions,” which aired on the PBS Nature series.


Cloud's Legacy

Cloud’s incredible story and Ginger’s hard work and vision have made Cloud so much more than what was ever though possible. The Cloud Foundation grew out of Ginger’s passion for the preservation of wild horses and protection of Cloud’s herd. The non-profit organization is dedicated to preventing the extinction of Cloud's herd through education, media events and programming, and public involvement. In 2011, Congress declared Cloud an ambassador for all wild horses living in the American West.  He is also honored with two sets of Breyer Model Horses.  Cloud’s Legacy and Cloud: Challenge of the Stallions.
Breyer is honored to welcome Ginger Kathrens to BreyerFest 2014, where she will be giving a seminar about her experiences documenting Cloud and his herd.  See photos and videos of Cloud’s newest family members and learn more about the plight of the mustangs, and what we can do to help!
Happy 19th birthday, Cloud!
