Duke of Nothing. by pom-happy-my-dog Duke of Nothing. by pom-happy-my-dog
This is the last time I bid for anything. Just because I'm sick of doing all this work and have it really be for nothing. I'm not being a poor sport, I'm just sick of wasting my time on pixel horses when I could be doing my own art. And this is not towards =BlossomHillStables either. Her decision was surely a difficult one to make. I'm sure other people, too, are sick of going all out for something they really want and still falling short. So it's all about me and how I feel and how I overall feel about bidding on any horse from anywhere or anyone. I am getting a Miami Vice foal so I'm not like so bummed out I'm going to go kill myself or something (that would be so utterly dumb). I just went through a shit load of personal things again with my boyfriend which really made the whole losing a pixel pony even worse. But still. No more bidding on really famous foals or anything maybe for that matter. So don't go and call me a baby when I go through adult problems and deal with adult problems like an adult and just act like a baby with pixels. Cuz that's what I'm doing.

Well, I tried. The background isn't exactly what I wanted it to be but for only having two days to work on this I think I did very well. If I had known about this little colt sooner....
Nonetheless if I don't win this guy I still have another shot at getting a breeding

Anyway on with his information if he'd stay at the Corral.

SHOW NAME| BTOCDuke of Hazzardous Diamonds
BREED| American Paint Horse
AGE| A few months
HEIGHT| Projected height to be around 15.3 hands
COLOR| Red Dun Sabino
GENOTYPE| ee / Aa / Dd / nSb
DISCIPLINE| An all rounder specializing in trail, hunter, western pleasure, and reining.

Sire| Gay Bar Bouncer
Dam| BhSDutchess with Diamonds


HISTORY| Due to a surplus of Dutchess with Diamonds' foals her owner, Catherine J. Smith, decided to part with this colt. Even though it was quite difficult for her she'll always have a special place for Duke in her heart no matter where he's homed.
PERSONALITY| Duke is a very goofy kind of horse. If he were a human he'd make a career being a stand up comedian. Though he's a goof he is laid back and has shown that he is eager to learn despite the fact he gets easily distracted. There is a strong sense that he will be a force to reckon with under saddle.

And of course I had to add some kind of story:
(This takes place as if we had already won the foal.)

--The beach air was crisp and filled the lungs with salty happiness. She looked at him and he back at her. Kitty couldn't help but laugh at that little colt with his rear facing her and his fine face turned to hers. She couldn't believe her eyes even as he was crashing his legs into the foamy surf of the sea. So full of life, love, and unimaginable promise.--

Just something short to show how much Kitty is amazed by this little colt and how exited she is for his future. He's at Virginia Beach that's just an hour away from the Corral.
