I found this photo while I was in Pennsylvania a few weeks ago. This is Ginger, mama horse, and Gypsy, baby horse. I’m pretty sure this photo is from the 1970’s. My grandpa bought Ginger for $100. A saddle was included as well. They had her a few weeks and my mom and aunts kept telling my grandpa that Ginger looked like she was getting a big belly. He said no no. They told him it looked like she was going to have a baby. He said nono.
One morning he went out to the barn and found little Gypsy standing beside Ginger. Apparently Ginger was pregnant!
I love this photo! Gypsy is trying to bite Gingers halter and you can even see his gums. The little guy didn’t have teeth yet. It’s adorable. I always loved this photo so I brought it back to Seattle with me.
