Old Photos Tag
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!
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!
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:
