Bachelor boys group together.


These two boys are trying to ambush the family in the following two pictures. They gave it their best shot but are out of luck this time. They reluctantly head away and join another nearby bachelor band.


A grey stallion watches over his family. He has given the two boys trying to take over his herd a run for their money and has successfully been able to look after his family. Age is on his side this time but he may not be so lucky next time.


Two bands group together for a short while and then go their separate ways. No hassles were encountered with the stallions of these two bands.


Army land in background, and if you are lucky, the Kaimanawa horses.
