Old Photos Tag

Annie Oakley

My hero… Annie Oakley 

A while ago now, Strawberry Lane tagged me with an “Old Photos Tag,” where I am supposed to post old photos of your truly.  I’ve been a bad poster lately and have just now gotten around to doing this!  Sorry Strawberry Lane!

Papoose & I

This photo is of my first horse show.  I was around nine years old and on my favorite Spanish Mustang, Papoose.  Papoose was raised on the Yuma Indian Reservation in Arizona and was a fire ball of a horse.  She was wonderful and every time I think of her, to this day, a little tear comes to my eyes.  Papoose lived to be 42 years old, taught me everything; and by the way, we got first place in the walk / trot!  She was put to sleep November 1994 after a stroke that left her hind end paralyzed.


Here we are again, 4th of July parade!

Tink & I

Here I am, probably five years ago now.  This is “Tink” or registered name Belle Starr.  She was the easiest horse for me to train, thus far.  So mellow, easy going, lovely personality… I regret selling her only for selfish reasons.  She went to a wonderful home in Arizona where she is spoiled and treasured.  I miss her and sometimes hear updates about her.  She is a lovely lady, and a lady is the best way to describe her.

I shall now tag these lucky folks:

Molly at HolaMole, Sarah at Scary’sWest, and Townie!  Ahem… Tracey?  You were tagged the same time as me… get to work. 😉
