SUBJECT: An adorable 1940s vintage BW photograph, with a great printed border, of a towheaded boy posing bareback on his black pony. Check out the chaps, bandana, cowboy hat and gun holster. This serious-faced boy looks like he's preparing to ride a perimeter check of the homestead. This pony and his boy are brothers in arms, and I suspect there was a matching saddle to go with that fancy bridle, too, left behind on this warm summer day.

HORSE NOTES: This boy is an experienced, confident rider with a natural, easy seat. I bet he and his trim little pony shared miles and miles of adventures together as the best of childhood friends.

ITEM DETAILS: This original vintage BW photograph measures 2.75 x 3.75 inches. It is in very good condition, with one miniscule diagonal crease at the lower right border corner. It was removed from an album at some point along the way, so paper residue is present on the back.

SHIPPING & HANDLING: Paper items are wrapped with care in acid-free sleeves, placed between sheets of cardboard and shipped in secure packaging within two business days of purchase.

VINTAGE: All vintage and antique items have unique histories and are offered for sale in exactly the condition they were found. They are sold “AS IS.”
