Friday On My Mind - 2

It's Friday again, which means the lovely Rhonda from the Down To Earth blog is having her Friday Photo Feature - 'On My Mind....'  I enjoyed tripping round blogs listed in the comments on Rhonda's blog, and have bookmarked quite a few to revisit.

So what's on  my mind this lovely Friday?

My dad trained racehorses when I was a kid, and I don't remember a time when I didn't have horses in my life, so it's no surprise really, that one of my favourite photos is of me, probably at 2 or 3 sitting on one of dads racehorses, apparently I would get very cranky if anyone tried to put a hand on me to make sure I was safe up high on their backs.

The horse I'm on was a 2yo filly, she held a track record at the Gold Coast at one stage, very fast filly, she was my favourite.

I promise next Friday's photo won't be horse related!!

Till next time,


  1. Such a happy memory! I'm ok with horses!

  2. Hi Becky, yes a great memory:) I'll no doubt revert to horsey Friday's after next week :)

  3. Hello Mel I think that is a great memory. I think your Dad must have been very good at his job. You look very cute on that horse. B

  4. Thanks Buttons, he was and is great with horses, and I hope to one day give our future kids similar memories with our horses :) I think it's a cute shot too heehee

  5. Hi Mel! I live in Kentucky and I love horses though I am not very good at riding them. They are amazing creatures.

  6. You were so brave and adorable! Even as an older child I was terrified of getting on a horse! :S

  7. Hi Mary, they certainly are amazing creatures, I've not been to Kentucky as yet, hopefully next year with my job.

  8. Hi Lorraine, thanks, it's about the only photo of me I like!! Apparently I was quite fearless with them, much to my mothers horror!
