My Mother and Her Horse--Throwback Thursday

Ella with Charlie her horse (4)

 This photo is definitely taking a spot of honor on my "PV Horse Property" blog! A school chum of my mother sent it to my oldest sister and she shared a copy with me. I've never seen the photo before so what a treat!

She's not dressed for riding, and it was Missouri, not Palos Verdes, but how very cool she wanted to include Charlie in the photograph with her. No date on the photo but looks very 1929-1930ish to my eyes. This is one for the wall!
