We often see pronghorn (commonly and incorrectly called antelope) and mule deer together (see “Deer and Antelope Play” on 04-19-19). Mule deer also often graze in the pastures with our horses (see “Derby Day” on 05-05-12). But for some reason Leonard and I never before saw horses (Equus ferus caballus) and pronghorns (Antilocapra americanna) interacting.
Recently a small herd of pronghorn joined a band of horses in their large pasture along Modoc County Road 87 between Adin and Lookout CA. The two species were intermingled and peaceably grazing together.
This post is going nowhere – I simply like the pictures of wild pronghorn and domestic horses sharing space and foraging together.
