Slosson Lane Horse

Barbara sent me the following photo and explanation earlier today.

Tony was our neighbor Nancy Hilmire's horse and he was very athletic and talented could rear up on command, turn on from a standing position, and Nancy could jump up on him from behind (I could to if a box was conveniently placed behind him).

Nancy was about to be a first year student at DeSales and asked Grandaddy if she could keep her horse in our barn even before her family's new house was built (on a lot purchased from Grandaddy). She introduced us to horses at Slosson Lane. Because of a new friendship with her I got a horse by December and Tiffany a year later.

That's Crunch holding Tony -- she's probably about 15.

And of course, that is Kate riding Tony. I'm guessing she is 4.
