The horse is Whisky and the shot was taken in North Berwick, Scotland. There’s no date on the picture, but I’m guessing Ma’s about 16 to18, based on some of the other pics in the archives. Ma did love the horses!
This is as scanned – no adjustments made.

Lovely pic Mike…. a nice image of your mum……Thanks for sharing!!!Brenda
Thanks so very much, Miz Brendy. She’d have appreciated the favourite, too! I’ve got quite a few of her with her nags, dugs and the odd wee pussycat.
It is so great to have access to the old family photographs.
Many thanks, Al. It surely is. I think I’ve got about 70 odd year’s worth. Many of them are not much bigger than a postage stamp and they take a bit of work, but there are quite a few larger prints as well as negs and slides. All carefully stored in a shoebox.

Many thanks for stopping by and taking the time to add your very kind words, Malu. Much appreciated!
This is great! please consider adding it to the group: Those Colorful Paints & Pintos
Thanks so very much, Diane. I’ll get right on it!
I just checked the group rules, Diane, and I don’t think I can add it. I didn’t take the picture – it’s one from the family archives and I’m not sure who did.
