Mosaic Monday - vintage horses

(click image to enlarge)

My project the other day inspired me to go through some old family photos and find as many "horse" photos as I could. There were considerably more than I could fit in this mosaic! I may have to make a two-parter.

The top left photo is my mom's great uncle, the top right photo is my mom's other great uncle watching a herd of wild horses. The bottom right is my grandpa and his brother (and someone else I don't know) taking their team of horses racing even though they weren't supposed to. :) Bottom middle photo is my great grandpa's brother and family (very proud of their horse I guess!), and the bottom left photo is my mom's uncle.

Be sure to visit Little Red House to see other beautiful mosaics!

I don't even have words to express how cool I think these photos are. How lucky it is that you have them and what a neat family history with horses. I love the bottom middle photo. I'd really like to see a close up of that one!

Beautiful vintage photos, I love them all, but i guess the bottom middle photo is my favorite. I love how proud the horse looks and i guess they must have been proud of him.

What a wonderful collection you have! I'm happy my mom has saved tons of family photos, too - important to keep the family stories alive after the people have gone.
