HAPPY TRAILS TO YOU


I am really dating myself by quoting the ending song on the Roy Rogers TV show oh so many years ago. Happy Trails to You until we meet again.
The horse was waiting patiently (or just plain bored) for the next paying customer. At $3.00 for once around a wide track it wasn't something we were going to do. So we just watched others ride and we enjoyed the beautiful leaves of Fall for free.
Be sure to click on the photo to enlarge it.

cela donne envie, mais je ne suis à l'aise que sur les gros percherons ;o)


This makes you want, but I am at ease on the big percherons ;o)

My sister tells me that she used to dress up in her Sunday best as a child when the Roy Rogers show came on. She LOVED it.

This guy looks like a nice and calm creature. Lovely shot!

I grew up singing that song, and playing cowboys and Indians too.

great song, great photo.

OK I'll fess up. I remember the song and TV show too. I also remember years later when Bullit died, Roy Rogers had him stuffed. Sometime after that, when Trigger died, he too was stuffed and kept with Roy. Years later I was quite relieved that Roy went before Dale Evans.. ;)

He looks like Tonto's horse.

Hmm, that sounded racist.

There is something so endearing about seeing the horse of old waiting for his next fare... I have an old (yes, very old) picture of a three year old me complete with hat and chaps sitting upon such a horse. I know about Roy Rogers too :) cute picture.
