Hello from Chloride AZ, my new home. Have been away but the horses have been in my heart.
I have been Horseless for almost 2 1/2 months now, and my move completed.
So happens I moved to a town that has 4 or 5 Cerbats living high abvoe the town near the Muralls, I have not been up there yet, But I talked with the WHS at the Kingman Field office this afternoon to find out all I could about the Cerbats,
The bigger herd is across the Mtn. from Chloride in Faulk(?)Canyon. I was told that the Cerbats have been a self maintaining herd, (I.E. numbers) for about 10 years. They are healthy and there were 4 new foals 3-4 mo. old as reported by the WHS. He was up there last week to check on them. I will try to get up there this week to see I can see any. WHS says it is quite accessible and told me where and how to get there. Man and a mountain lion or two are the only predators there.
Tom asked me to check when he found I was close to the Cerbat Mtn.s,
Chloride is an old mining town . Est. 1860 They named it Chloride after the Silver Chloride that was mined there, along with Copper , Gold, etc.
I intend to get pictures if I can. I need a better camera then my Phone, but I think I'll try to view the Falk Canyon Band today, before I go back to Chloride, been baby sitting Tortoises for my friend here in Kingman this week. May take the back way home, which will take me right through that Canyon. I need to get a map!
