Watch the drama unfold as Cloud struggles to keep his family intact in the face of challenges both natural and man made.
In 1995, while filming wild horses in the mountains of Montana, Ginger Kathrens discovered a striking, almost pure white colt just hours after his birth. Kathrens named him Cloud. She feared that his distinctive coat would make him an obvious target for mountain lions; but he survived and Kathrens continued to follow him in his adventures.
In "Cloud: Wild Stallion Of The Rockies" this wild horse developed from a bumbling, unsteady colt into an adventurous, defiant youth.
In "Cloud’s Legacy: The Wild Stallion Returns," Cloud is now a band stallion with a mare and her children, a yearling and a foal. Meanwhile, Cloud’s own child, which has a telltale golden coat, lives with another herd and will never know him as his father.
As the seasons pass, foals are born, brothers fight against one another for control of mates, and Cloud’s legacy grows. Threats come not only from rivals, but from government agencies struggling to manage both human and equine interests.
Yet the biggest trial Cloud’s herd faces is yet to come: surviving an out-of-control wildfire that that threatens their lives and home. Join these legendary wild horses on their adventures on NATURE’s "Cloud’s Legacy: The Wild Stallion Returns."
