In the canyon

7 01 2013

A return to an old friend:

Duke (with Kreacher) in Spring Creek Canyon, drinking.

Duke, caught in the act of turning. It makes him look more animated than this usually calm boy acts, and I love the swish of his tail, the wave of his mane, his gorgeous, rich, thick bay coat against the rock wall of the canyon, topped by snow. And I love this bachelor boy – in case you couldn’t tell. 🙂

Another fabulous picture 🙂
By the way thanks for the “The Wild horse Scientist” recommendation, I asked for the Douglas County Libraries to order it for everyone to have access to it.
Want keep our public informed as best as possible about our mustangs. 🙂

I do have such a weakness for bays. 🙂 And Duke is such a quiet character. Love him!

What a beautiful horse Duke is. I love bays too.

I’ve always wondered whether he and Bounce and Poco are related. They have the same mouth/chin. But where Bounce and Poco are short and fairly compact, Duke has a longer build. Funny resemblance with the chins, but there ya go. 🙂
