Horses' Birthday

In Australia we celebrate Horses' birthdays on August 1st. Yesterday, on the horses' birthday,  I was thinking about the importance of horses to my ancestors for transport, work and play. This morning I looked for family photos I had with the tag "horses.".

I have chosen to share a photo of my Dad, aged 9 years, on a horse at the family farm in Canowindra, NSW. The skills my Dad learnt as a young boy on the farm helped him to gain membership, as an adult, of the prestigious New South Wales Mounted Police Force. I blogged about this previously in my post "When the Queen came to town".
