Duke, the Pet of the Day
Name: Duke
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Crop Out Paint
Home: St. Louis, Missouri, USA
   Duke is three-year-old male. He is very sweet and gentle for being so young. I have only been with him for about three and half months, but it has seemed like forever. We came together at a sad occasion. When my last horse Brandy, a 23 year old mare, died of colic, a friend offered to lease Duke to me when I was ready to ride another horse. I took the offer, and I am very happy with the choice. Since the day I got him he has been a great horse and a best friend. I don't see Duke every day, but I do go out to ride him every Saturday. We are involved in a Mounted Girl Scout Ranch. The girls range from thirteen to eighteen years old, and they each ride their horse each Saturday. Every girl comes out from 9:30am to 2:30pm. I have been going out horseback riding every Saturday for the past year and a half. Our official name is God's Green Acre Ranch. There is over 40 girls in the ranch. Duke still has a little baby left in him, so he just loves to take off galloping in the field. There is nothing he enjoys more then running. But because he is still childish, he just loves to try and grab the lead rope in his mouth when I am leading him around, and try to lead himself in a playful manner. It is very cute, and so is he.
