The Littlest Cowboy

Hello there, Little Person

Things are still crazy around here, but this was too sweet not to share – Niko meets his Auntie Rachel’s horse, Cheeseburger.

Regular readers may recognize the hat – it was part of his Sheriff Woody costume at Halloween. I am told that the phrase “Ride like the wind, Bullseye!” was uttered more than once…

Thanks to Daughter Sarah for the picture, and to Daughter Rachel for the opportunity.

  1. I loved this photo!!!! Cheeseburger has made a friend! Love the way he reaches out to your little one!
    And I have been very busy this holiday season and just want to wish you a Happy New Year!!! I know you had a Merry Christmas! 😀 Me too!!!
    Enjoy!!! The season is still upon us!!!

      • I think the noise gives it an interesting look, but if you really don’t like it, and if you have Photoshop, it should be easy enough to clean up some of the noise (although that will give it a softer appearance).

  2. Love this photo! But “cheeseburger”??? Oh, my! I believe I have heard one too many McDonald’s stories to be comfortable with that name, LOL!! The photo, however, is absolutely priceless!

  3. Lucky Niko! What little boy hasn’t put on a cowboy hat and dreamt of horses? Niko got the chance to actually meet one — and you’re lucky enough to have a photo capturing the moment. What a photo it is, too!

  4. Oh you are right! That is a fantastic shot.. One for the wall i think, I love that grainy look. And beautifully balanced. What a good boy standing so still for an enormous horsey and “Cheeseburger?” what a cool name for a horse.. Have a wonderful day.. Thank for for the nudge over, i would hate to have missed this.. c

  5. Can only echo the woohooo feeling around here. Mind you the name of the horse makes me smile as we had some fun and games here this year with horse meat entering the food chain (illicitly I might add) into lasagnes and burgers……. oops!!
    Sorry I’ll get me coat !

    • That little ‘issue’ got reported-on over here, too…so much that some people (whose listening skills FAIL) thought there was horsemeat being passed off as beef in the US…probably the same bunch who refused to buy chicken for months for fear of getting Bird Flu.
      Honestly – how did they ever survive to Adulthood?

  6. What a terrific photo. I can just see Niko when he is all grown up looking at this photo and the memories of that day. 🙂 Happy New Year to you and your family, Marie.
