Remembering Tony

This was my first horse and he was the sweetest animal. His name was Tony and he was gentle, patient and never ran off like our Shetland pony! He was such an affectionate horse and everyone loved him. I was 6 in this photo. After all these years, thinking of him brings tears to my eyes and a knot in my heart. The intensity one can feel after many years is very under estimated. I can still vividly feel the love and joy he brought to our family. I remember his loss. He truly was remarkable and that I am blogging about Tony today is a statement on his worth to one family. If I close my eyes perhaps I can reclaim a special ride…

  1. Tony was a beauty!
    Oh, I am such a sucker for old pictures like that!
    I’ll admit I sometimes sit and scour your site just for the visuals!
    Have a great week end!

      You are too sweet. I like old black and white photos also. Hope I can find more good ones! As always thanks for the visits…

  2. That’s so sweet…made me tear up. Reminds me of my dog Bodhi…I won’t ever stop missing him and the connection we shared.

      I have a long lists of special pets from the past. I never forget any of them…. I imagine it is that way for most people.
