Sepia saturday 182; girls and horses;



This time I left the photos in their original state. I thought the faded, old photos looked quite nice and in a way suit Sepia Saturday. I hope you agree.



ML and David, a well trained and clever little stock horse. He helped to round up the cattle.


Chichi was ML's horse. Strong and wilful, both of them!


Grooming and caring for the horses was a favourite task for the girls.



Friends;



J. prefered the small motor bike.



Down to the river for a quick dip;



This used to be the milk house, we did not have dairy cows. It was not used for a long time. The dairy herd of this farm had the reputation of producing the best cream.



L. was the girl to look after animals and birds in need  of TLC.

Now canter over to Sepia Saturday 182

  1. "Girls and Horses" - what is it about girls and their horses? I have many pictures similar to yours of my daughter with her horse. When it came to that horse, she didn't mind the dirtiest of work, but come Halloween she always wanted to be something pretty like a princess, dancer, super heroine.

    1. Wendy, good memories. Two of my daughters loved the horses, the middle one preferred the machines.

  2. I agree that the faded photos have a charm of their own. Aren't you lucky to have so many horse pictures to fit the theme as well?

  3. Fine collection of family and livestock. And the faded colors help add to the mood.

  4. Lovely and very personal collection of youth and good times and sunny days (that's a rare big deal for us!!). I wondered about the big round stone sitting on the concrete breeze blocks . Was it stone or concrete? What was its original purpose?

  5. Nigel, it was on this property when we bought it. I think it was concrete, so not sure, perhaps it covered once a hole? We used it as a table top, it was very heavy.

  7. I enjoyed riding horses, but all the grooming, cleaning, etc., I just couldn't be bothered. Lucky there were plenty of girls who were mad keen to do that ;-)
