The Countess Dysart celebrated her birthday this week. She was surprised by her fiance who flew her to the Principality of Swann last night in order to present her with her birthday present early this morning. The Duke of Argyle purchased a young Hanoverian stallion for his fiance's stud from the Duke of Swann. His Royal Highness gave the horse at half its value to the couple as an engagement present.
The Countess, a passionate equestrian and stud owner beamed at receiving the young stallion who is named Launcher's Dart. The Duke of Swann's stud is rated as one of the top in the world and the Duke of Argyle has taken his impending marriage to the equestrian Countess as a prompting to show support of his future wife.
The friendly gesture from the side of the Duke of Swann came after a year of friendly and business relations between himself and the Countess who hosted the grand Birthday Ball for the Duke of Swann and his cousin the Crown Prince Imperial at her family's Glen Coe Castle. We wish Her Ladyship a happy birthday and all the best in her plans for the young stallion. We also look forward to her marriage to the Duke of Argyle set for later in 2013.
