My post below, which I titled Afternoon Treat, has been well received. It has been viewed 95 times here on the blog itself and many more times on Facebook. I can’t keep track of the number of views on FB because the post has been shared by many people, some of whom I don’t even know.
A few minutes ago, I heard from Jenn, one of the riders in the picture. I thought you might like to read her comment, which she added to the original post. She wrote:
I love this picture! This was me and my friends! I didn’t feel like driving so I thought I would take my horse! It was a beautiful day! A lot of people stopped to pet the horses. I love to see the smiles on people’s faces when seeing horses on the street. We made a little girl’s day that day as well. Thanks for sharing! The ice cream was well needed!
I am still attempting to track down the name of the person who took the picture. I found it on the page of a FB friend. But he didn’t take it; neither did his friend who shared it. It was taken by a third party.
As I told Jenn, I think the photo strikes a chord with people who grew up in Woodstock, or who lived here during a simpler time. Thank you, everyone, for your interest.
