Vintage Day

I got a new printer/scanner/copier for Christmas.  I had one but it stopped working and I never really scanned many pictures with it.  I thought I might try to do a little better with this one.  And, since this is a farm/ranch/horse blog what better way to start than with some vintage horse show pictures.  
 How about a vintage horse show line up from 1979.  Our judging team wanted to raise some money to go to contest in the midwest so we put on a horse show and raised enough to take all of us out there on a 5 day trip in the back of a pickup truck (with a shell top).
 We had a great turn out and I was able to show along with helping with the show.
 Yes, that's me and Hot Toddy in first place.  I had a sprained ankle at the time and wasn't able to put my foot in the stirrup.
Hot Toddy was my sister's horse that I ended up showing for several years.  He was 1/2 app and 1/2 Thoroughbred but I got asked endlessly if he was an Arabian or Quarter Horse.  We always thought he was lazy because he would trip, stumble, drag his feet and fall sometimes but when I got into Vet school I found out he was actually a wobbler.  It did make for a nice western pleasure horse though.

I really enjoy all the pics you share here and appreciate your visiting my blog as well. The scanner sure has been wonderful for retrieving old pics for us bloggers. I just started using mine on my last post when I couldn't find digital shots I wanted. The idea of a pet post is great ~ your critters are all adorable but I must admit that Emma's headshot stole my heart!
Wishing you a happy n healthy 2014!

Great to be able to scan those pic, the old photos fade so much, nice to keep them as clear as possible
