 Just a few notes on this beautiful fellow. Vegas had a small herd of one mare, her yearling colt and her foal in 2008 just prior to the last round up on the Sand Wash Basin HMA(SWB). The BLM took All three of them into captivity for adoption and released Vegas back on to the range.

Mustang A Day Challenge Painting #104
 Last year, according to the horse watchers on the Sand Wash Basin and their documentation, Vegas stoled the mare Olga From Picasso  with her late 2010 foal PJ (aka Picasso Junior) Vegas now has two mares , Two coming 2 year olds and two foals this year. The Awesome thing is how  Vegas has taken PJ and made him his favorite. Hardly any photos coming out of SWB this summer don't have a shot of Vegas and PJ together. This Band Stallion is amazing!

An update on Vegas' 2008  mare and foals. I havent heard where the mare and yearling ended up but the foal was adopted by one of my very favorite Sand Wash Basin Photo-documenters, Nancy Roberts. Earlier this Summer she had the opportunity to ride her special boy for the first time back on his home range.
