Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
Bother her clothing and the artwork/weaving on the saddle blanket are beautiful.I STILL want a pony.
All the dots on her dress must be elk teeth. The beaded(?) 'necklace' is lovely too. Great picture. Where is Fort whatever?
It is in North Central Montana.
Wow - look at how SMALL that horse/pony is - and it looks very very young. I cannot believe she is riding it. I don't think Indian ponies led a very pampered life.
My dad's friend, Begeron Carter, worked at the local slaughter house in the mid 70's and rode his mare to work everyday, about 7 miles. He would carry a lead rope and halter in case she gave birth while out. Horses are tough creatures.Lorenzo Poe
What a contrast with yesterday's fat 'n' happy pleasure pony.
Life was very VERY hard for indian horses. It almost looks like a yearling. Poor thing.
Quite a contrast between the Native american girl and her pony and the wealthy elite the previous day, not much has changed!
