Cloud 3 airs Sunday on PBS

Join filmmaker Ginger Kathrens after the show Sunday for a live Q&A at

Cloud: Challenge of the Stallions premieres Sunday evening, Oct. 25, on PBS stations nationwide. This program is the third chapter in the exciting life of the charismatic stallion, Cloud, and the wild horses of the spectacular Pryor Mountains of Montana.

The third installment of the Cloud series continues with all the twists, turns and excitement of a charismatic wild horse herd, focusing on the white palomino Cloud as he continues to grow into a mature horse.

The first two two shows “Cloud: Wild Stallion of the Rockies” (2001) and “Cloud’s Legacy: The Wild Stallion Returns” (2003) chronicle the first 8 years of Cloud’s life, a story that began when a newborn wild horse foal tottered out of the forest right in front of Kathrens' camera. She named the pale colt Cloud and has followed through him through the seasons.

Check local listings for specific broadcast times.

  1. Cloud's story was interesting. It was neat to see Cloud's family grow and the challenges they went through as the seasons changed. The landscape was beautiful.

  2. Thanks to this blog for the link to the first 2 Cloud programs - it was so interesting to see the life of a wild mustang. My entire family tuned in and enjoyed the beautiful photography as well and the details about the life of a mustang herd.
    Well done!
