One Word Sunday: Joyful

I’ve loved horses all my life. This is the first photo of me on a horse, a pony really,  brought house-to-house by someone when we lived in Omaha, Nebraska to see if people wanted to have their children’s pictures taken on it. I don’t recall it at all, but I know that I was filled with joy and I’ve felt that joy when with a horse ever since.  How much more exciting than sitting in a studio for a candid shot!

  2. Your life must be surrounded with loving companions; how lucky you are.

    You and a horse make a great team.

    There was a guy-and-a-horse in Louisville, Kentucky, too! I have a picture of wee me sitting on him. The horse, not the man.

  6. Great memory. I said to a friend the other day, as we were looking at some horses in a field, that if I could choose to make one irrational purchase at this age it would be to buy one last horse. I love horses, always have, always will. 🙂

    A cute little cowgirl – you certainly looked comfortable, Janet.

  8. Wow, what a great photo! All my childhood pictures are boring… I’ve still never ridden a horse, either. They’re beautiful creatures though.

    I share your love of horses Janet. That little pony looks a bit fed up with the whole thing though I can see the joy on your face.

  10. I’m in on this one! We had the early childhood pony pics at our house in West Los Angeles, too :)) You can ride along with me on my horses on one of my “Virtual Rides!” Starboy, Laddie, and the herd, await you — Enjoy! :)) Dawn

  11. So much better than a studio portrait. What a treasure! You were so cute.

    Oh, a brilliant example of joyful. I’m the same when with horses. And Wyoming is very much on my to-do-list

    What a very joyful share, Janet. It must be lovely to have that bond with horses. Happy Easter! 🙂 🙂

  15. I remember the man with the pony going house to house, too!
    We begged, but mom said we had all the horses we could want at the farm on weekends…but it was a PONY – and a picture perfect one. He let you wear chaps! Had to settle for petting it – and the man was pretty nice about that.
    Love you have that picture – a real Dale Evans era memory.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
