    Default Loads o' Horse Photos

    Google has posted old Life Magazine photos here.


    Type in "horses" and lose a day's work looking at them.


    Type in "Calumet Farm" and see color and b&w photos of a thoroughbred kingdom at its height of glory in 1953.

    There is a fabulous pic of Man O' War. I have never seen that one before. Too bad you can only buy it framed and not just buy the print.

    Ohhh ahh! Now this is a great way to spend a ton of time

    Silky Sullivan pictures (LIFE)

    Look at him in the saddling area before the Santa Anita Derby - he looks like he's pure muscle! See second row down, then fourth pic from the left.

    It's not working anymore. Jeesh. It only brought up 2 horses and this must be a twin whose sibling died? It doesn't really look like a dwarf:

    Goodness, thank you SO much for sharing! Wow. Love the pictures of Mrs. Markey in the cemetery. Haunting. I've deduced that the horse in the Widener blanket is Armed. Would love to know who the flashy blaze-faced chestnut foal with four stockings grew up to be.
