I found this neat vintage advertising image from the 50s on Tumblr. One expects Roy Rogers, Gene Autry to come riding into the picture any minute too!That reminded me of how I used to wait for the Roy Rogers TV show to come on after Disney’s (original) Mickey Mouse Club show when I was quite little.
Of course I was excited about it because of the horses! I thought Trigger was very elegant–nothing like the small gray Shetland I was riding! (Though wasn’t I lucky to have him!)
