In Nov 1956, my husband, Max, and his older sister, Dianne, had their photo taken while sitting on this little pony. Max says it might have been Wichita Falls, Wichita County, Texas or possibly Floydada, Floyd County, Texas, which is near Lubbock, Lubbock County, Texas. (Well, now I find out from Dianne that she remembers they were in Amarillo, Potter County, Texas. So, who knows?)
Aug 2007, I ran across this photo on the web. It looked like the same pony!
I emailed the web site and Nora responded. "The photo was taken of my big
brother, Mike, around 1958 in Austin, (Travis County, Texas.) The owner
was taking the horse down the street and asking people if they wanted photos
of their children with the horse, so the photo was taken next to their house.
The horses in those photos look very similar -- apparently, a lot of kids
had their photos taken with horses in the ‘50s. We also have a baby photo
of my brother on a horse."
Do you have a photo of this same pony? Email me your photo of this pony and your story and I will post it here.
