Goodbye Duke

Duke the wonder horse is on his way to greener pastures today. 
He was the gentle grand- dad of the herd.  Picked on a bit, off alone alot.
He was the one we'd pile babies on, ride double, bareback, backwards, stand on him
and hug for long spells muzzle to forehead.
Duke had freckles and a kind loving heart.
WE will miss you Duke.

With great love,
your human family,
Tate, Stephanie Rosie, Roscoe and Morgan.

ladies, Duke thanks you for all the love. I read somewhere that when a sick animal dies they go to a "sleeping room" where they gather their strength in their new life. I imagine Duke in a dream stall with your "get well" cards pinned up all around him. :) We are all so moved by this gentle giant...its strange how much we are affected...and like all my other animal friends that make the farm in the art farm, i continue to ask myself "whose in there? in that big wooly body, that big furry physique that fuzzy little feline?!" Some animals are kinda blah...then there are those who make you think. Duke was somebody.
