Throwback Thursday - Sunflower

I've had a whole bunch of 13-14 hours out of the house in a row types of days lately. And I feel like I'm this close to getting a cold (seems like everyone I work with is already sick). So when I get home at 10:30 at night I've been pretty well going straight to bed and not blogging about what's been happening with the ponies.

So enjoy these throwback pics.

Sunflower was my first pony, who I owned from 1987-1993. She was a QH/Appy/Arab who was born in November, 11 months after a stallion jumped a fence.

I was looking through an old photo album recently and found this one from about 1991.

Not too shabby right?

Also from that jumping session, I present to you:

Pretty sure I ended up with sand in places it shouldn't be.


  1. I think that Sunflower is a great name for a horse/pony. I saw the first photo and though 'wow'. I also thought that for the second photo but for different reasons. :)

    1. Lol! My dad did pretty good at capturing awkward moments back in the days of film cameras. I have a couple more of me hanging off the side of the horse that I will have to scan one day.

  2. Oh no! That 2nd photo is wild! Cool that it was captured, but hopefully you were young enough to bounce! ;-)

    1. I bounced - my age still had a 1 in front of it at that time!
