As I have been organizing and backing up photos and files on my computer, I found an old photo. This photo was scanned for the slideshow at our wedding. I cannot believe that I did not remember that it was saved on my computer until yesterday.
This is a photo of my aunt, dear Littlebit, and me, age three. This photo documents my very first equine encounter. I am so happy that someone in my family had a camera that day. I wrote about this experience for the very first post for Memoirs of a Horse Girl. I swear that I remember it. Not this moment exactly, but the moment I was placed on Littlebit's back. It was like a switch turned on and I finally opened my eyes. I can still see her mane in front of me. She lived to be well into her twenties on a farm near my Oma (Dutch for grandmother), so I saw her many times growing up. She was also sister to King, whom I have written about before. They looked very much alike. What a delight it was to find this photo again. I have added it to my "Welcome" post, but wanted to share it here as well.
