I collect family 'pony' photos. This one is my mom and her sister. It's amazing how long this tradition went on...I have photos of myself and my sister and younger cousins, too.

Hi Kathleen! I don't know how I missed this. I just spotted a new message and found several I'd missed.

I've got the same type of pony photo and found one of my Dad too.

Here's one my Mom took of us three girls on Gran's horse, Rusty.

That's a heck of a pony! LOL What I love about my own pony picture is that I remember that day; I don't have too many clear memories of my childhood. It's amazing how long the practice lasted, too, since my mom's photo would have been taken in the early 1920's.

You're so right. I remember when I was 4 or 5 and a guy came around our neighborhood with his pony. Mom had my photo taken then. Evidently Connie and Diana were at school because I don't remember them having a pony photo.

Can you imagine how long it took back in the 1920's for that photo to be taken? That's a long time to hold a smile.

Yes, and it must have been cheap, too, or they couldn't have had one done. I was surprised at the quality of the original. Here's mine...

I always did love hats - maybe this is where it started!

My Great grandmother Elise Mary Diacon Ash with my Uncles Bill and Delmer, Aunt Leorie Leishman and my Grandfather Clarence Leishman. I believe this was taken at the Jason Ash homestead near Lakeside NE.

I can't help but notice almost everyone has a hat on in these old photos. Mt Granparents again with their oldest 2 children.Thumb of 2010-09-14/stilldew/01cdbf

Being ranchers, the Leishman's have lots of horse photos. This is my Grandmother Mary Ash Leishman with her cousin Roy Wood.Thumb of 2010-09-14/stilldew/79d8e6

This isn't a pony either, but a horse that looks like he's really bored with all these kids on-board.

My Mom, Lilah Lorraine Gillis is in front, then her cousin Billie Young, brother Ray, older girl is unknown to me, and brother Ted. Mom and Billie were born in 1917. This photo was taken on the John Thomas Gillis homestead in the Adelaide District of Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, California. The Gillis children's parents were John Thomas and Irene Estelle (Young) Gillis.

Great Photo! I love your tagline!

I see you are a Yates. I am too! Are we related?

No, not a Yates. My DH's step-father was the Yates and his ancestors came from New York. Being a family genealogist, I looked up your name and decided that there was probably no relationship in the US, maybe in the UK at one time, where I am sure their family came from originally.
