Are they both posing for the camera? Perhaps you have a photo of your parents/grandparents on a pony in your family album? This is Bert Williams on a donkey or mule(?) in 1912 Oklahoma.

Had to look twice. Could have sworn that was Beaver Cleaver.😂😂😂

Cute photo This is a donkey. Mules are much larger, closer to horse size. I would guess since it doesn’t look like there is a saddle, that the donkey belongs to Bert’s family or friends.

This was around 1927. The smallest girl on the pony is my Aunt Angelina (Jill), and the older girl is my Aunt Anna. The boy is my Uncle Salvatore; he was about 9 or 10 then.

Anna and Sal were named for two siblings...twins...who had been born before them, but who had died in a measles epidemic.

My dad was the oldest in the family. He and his mother and a sister, Elisabetta, and a brother, Nicolas, came to America from Italy in 1910. Their father (my grandfather, Nuncio) had arrived in the US a few years before and worked to save enough money to bring his family over.

Angelina, Anna, Sal, and another sister, Antoinette, were born in the US.

By the time the youngest, Angelina, was born, my dad was already 21 years old.

This is my Father and he is on a donkey.
I had a pony when I was young but do not have a photo. I have a picture of my nephew on my pony, but he is still living. I do not want to post any photos of any of my living relatives. Thanks for commenting.

Just think of the stories he could tell when he had reached his 90's!!! What a long, rich life, and just think about what he witnessed over the course of virtually the entire 20th century!
