A while back I posted photographs of my Great-Grandpa Constantine Breneman and his beautiful buggy horse. Being a horse crazy girl growing up, oh how I wanted to know that horse’s name.
It was evident that Great-grandpa was proud of her.
Yes, her! This past weekend we had a small family gathering on the Breneman side complete with stacks of photographs, family trees, and research books. We had a great time exchanging information and stories and then lo and behold my cousin had the above photograph with the caption, “Constantine Breneman and Dolly. Isn’t she a beauty?!
And as I write this, I think “Oh, dear, do you suppose Dolly is the dog underneath the horse??”
I hope not. And surely, if the dog was the focus of the photograph, Great-Grandpa Breneman would have been shown seated with it instead!
