    In the old days, some folks would take a pony or a donkey, dress him up in a little kid's saddle and bridle, then bring along some chaps, a vest and a cowboy hat. Then, they would walk with the pony and gear through the neighborhoods in the city and offer to take photographs of kids on the pony for a fee. They made money, the pony had a job, and many of us have pictures of our ancestors sitting on a pony or donkey. One of the ones I have of my grandmother is actually her sitting on a donkey, without the hat, vest or chaps. She looks less than thrilled, LOL!

    That one was probably at a fair or sideshow because the pony is, er, 'less mobile'. They still do that at fairs with a stuffed bull.

    I thought so too! I zoomed in on it and the skin looks just weird and the eyes too. Feet weren't digging into the ground and it looks like there is a pole behind one leg. Creepy is correct!

    They were still doing that 25 years ago because I have a baby picture of myself dressed up that way on a mini.

    Yes, it really does. The whole Beebe family is kind of sad now. Too many tragedies.

    Never realized how universal this was until I found out that my friend's husband from China has the same pic: sitting on pinto pony with the cowboy tack. He is about 70 yrs old, to give a time frame.

    Indeed, and not just 'ancestors,' but selves:

    Note that they are much easier to market around the neighborhood when still ambulatory.

    Way to make me feel ANCIENT!
    I not only have the rent-a-pony pic, but also a pic of 8 or 9yo me on a stuffed bronc - taken in a Minneapolis MALL of all places! - wearing a dress, because in the late 50s nice little girls dressed up to go shopping.
