Introducing...Diamond B Duke
The first meeting
Meeting Duke for the first time and leading him out of his corral while my friend Barb (Elvira's mom) takes our picture. Looks like Duke's posing for the camera, doesn't it?
Duke struting his stuff. Getting warmed up by Keith, the seller.
Our first ride.
He has the sweetest face and the kindest eyes. They are so unusual in that they are a very light brown, rather than dark brown. And he's just gorgeous. Still has a bit of his winter coat to shed (it's the darker brownish black you see on his neck and body). Duke is getting settled in and adjusting to many changes. It was difficult taking him away from his home and after a couple of delays he was loaded and we were on our way. It was hot, 97 degrees and I worried about him, but he seemed to take it all in stride, and now he's home with me. He's all mine. :)
More to come...time to get rested for my new job tomorrow!
