1.  Cloud: Wild Stallion of the Rockies

America’s wild horses lead an exhilarating but perilous existence. The climate can be brutal, mountain lions and other predators stalk the young, and their dependence on public grazing lands for sustenance often puts them in competition with livestock interests. In some places where these magnificent animals roam, it is not unusual for a wild horse to fall victim to an illegal horse shooter. Against this backdrop, NATURE presents Cloud’s story.

Cloud is a wild horse of a different colour - almost pure white. And his regal bearing and feisty personality make him stand out all the more.  Filmed in the mountains of Montana, this poignant, engrossing chronicle focuses on an extraordinary stallion, whose life has been recorded since his birth in the wild in 1995 by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Ginger Kathrens.

From the day of his birth in the Rockies, he so enthralled Ginger Kathrens that she began to follow his story, filming him and his fellow wild horses of the Arrowhead Mountains over the course of seven years. But in the highly competitive "culture" of wild horses, was Cloud capable of becoming the great band stallion she expected?

This first of two films documents the challenges he faces on the way to maturity. He is captured in a government round-up and released without his family, and battles with other stallions to win a family of his own.
This remarkable program sheds light on the rarely seen complexities of wild horse society, especially its strong need for family in an unpredictable world.

2.  Cloud's Legacy: The Wild Stallion Returns


Is there a beautiful new Cloud on the horizon?
In this second film, Ginger Kathrens unreels the next two years of her Cloud chronicles. Cloud is now a band stallion, with a family to care for. A new chapter of his life begins.
Now he is a father, with two sons. The one he will raise is not of his blood. The other is Cloud's spitting image, but will never know him as a father.
Yet Cloud's legacy is more than the passage of his genes, from father to son. He will also pass on all he has learned in the mountains to become a band stallion. His adopted son will profit from Cloud's skills as a protector, leader, and caretaker. And that may one day count for more than blood.

But will the family survive the hazards of their environment - drought, storms, lightning, fire? You won't rest until you've seen this poignantly powerful tale of nature at its wildest.

BONUS film
My Life With Cloud
Filmmaker Ginger Kathrens loves horses, but she has never known a horse as charismatic and fiercely independent as Cloud. In her own words, Kathrens gives fascinating insights on her years spent in the Rocky Mountains behind a camera, tracing the physical and social development of this uniquely beautiful wild stallion.
