Many of us have taken a drive in the fall, to view the changing scenery. But Taana Kalliainen has found a non-typical way (at least for this day and age), to take in the Keweenaw backcountry trails. Mount one of these beautiful horses and you'll not only be up high enough to get a good view, but you'll also get to sniff the scents of fall around you. Taana's even gone camping on horseback... sure sounds like a great way to see sights you'd never see in a vehicle. A 'back to nature' trail ride!

Apple knocker i'm glad you could tell the difference deer horse . ihope all the hunters can would'nt want them shooting horses

By Dave - Colorado on Tuesday, November 16, 2004 - 08:58 am:

Sometimes here in Colorado I have seen ranchers spray paint the word "Cow" on their cattle... I'm not sure it always works though... some cows still get blasted... presumable by hunters who are also blasted...

By Mary Ann, WY on Tuesday, November 16, 2004 - 09:05 am:

Nice photos!

By Bob G. Houghton Lake, MI on Tuesday, November 16, 2004 - 09:19 am:

Hey--are those the horses at Loose Reins in Lake Linden--seems to me I have been on one of those horses before.

By Saginaw on Tuesday, November 16, 2004 - 10:05 am:

Reminds me of my childhood:
My dad purchased a pony at an auction named Sugar. The name didn't fit. He wasn't as sweet as sugar. He bit us, kicked us, and bucked. Then, when I was 13, my parents purchased a beautiful dark brown quarter horse for me named Pokey. The name fit him perfectly. It was almost impossible to get him to do anything except walk. Loved him anyway!

By Mel in Westland, MI on Tuesday, November 16, 2004 - 10:12 am:

Good morning beautiful horses. Let it snow already down here. At least there is still green grass not brown.

That reminds me of a cartoon of a cowboy standing next to a lady holding a rifle and a dead horse and the cowboy says:

"Ok lady, it's your deer, but can I at least take my saddle off him?"

By Bill in CO on Tuesday, November 16, 2004 - 02:21 pm:

I'm about to paint the word "ELK" on the raccoon that hangs around my house in conifer in hopes that a hunter will see it!


By Mike E. - Redford, Mi. on Tuesday, November 16, 2004 - 03:12 pm:

Tracie & Taana;
My sister used to babysit for you back in the day when you guys were little kids. Remember the trips over to the beach, down in Portage Entry?
Man, where does the time go?
Dan in Fenton, here's a couple of good photos for 'da wife!!

By Taana on Tuesday, November 16, 2004 - 03:43 pm:

Wow! Thanks guys! I just logged on here and to my suprise there was Echo! The others belong to my friend. I love camping in the fall especially in the woods, the smell is just wonderful. The picture was taken at Lake Ste. Kathryn in Sidnaw. I keep them here in Chassell, close to home. Good luck to all the hunters and remember to recognize your target! :>)

By Dave... on Tuesday, November 16, 2004 - 05:08 pm:

Bill that is BRILLIANT!! and you can say that it was... an accident! that's it! an accident...

By dave... on Tuesday, November 16, 2004 - 05:51 pm:

On the other hand, maybe you should try painting "cow" on that pesky racoon since painting it on cattle seems to make them viable targets in certain neighborhoods... In our area we have about 193 gazillion squirrels I would love to see gone...

By Janie, IA. on Tuesday, November 16, 2004 - 05:55 pm:

Because I own six Miniature Horses, a section "A" Welsh pony, an Appaloosa, and a Quarter Horse...I really enjoyed the photos of these horses! Thankyou! (I also posted this accidently on the "what's up?")

By Bill, in CO on Tuesday, November 16, 2004 - 06:25 pm:

That raccoon is worse than the gopher from "Caddy Shack" It was on my roof two months ago trying to open a window.

For those who had inquired about the Girl's Basketball games tonight, you can hear the play-by-play from WMPL over at Pasty.NET. Right now Calumet leads Hancock in the 2nd quarter.

Can't see a picture of Yooper horses without conjuring up memories of Ann Olson. How many of you Pastycammers got a chance to learn to ride and care for horses, or do a little leatherwork (I'm sure I still have that wallet somewhere!) at her place? How many of us wouldn't have had that chance without her! My favorite time in her stables was giving carrot pieces to the horses she cared for. I still remember after all htese years....

By downstate don on Tuesday, November 16, 2004 - 08:19 pm:

Does anyone know what ever happened to Ann Olson's
daughter? And where she may be? I remember Ann, she was quite the horse person. Now I remember,
Ann's daughter's name was Laura. Does anyone know
her whereabouts? Thanks.

To Downstate Don - I am Laura Olson's cousin. Laura lives in the Southwest US and visits us here in the UP usually once a year. I too learned to ride at the knee of Ann Olson. Wish she was still here to teach my kids...

By downstate don on Wednesday, November 17, 2004 - 04:41 pm:

Bootjackgal; Miss Ann and Laura. Hope Laura is
doing well...I suppose she has horses. I have a
feeling she does not miss Michigan and all the snow.

By Sherry, Gulfport MS on Thursday, November 18, 2004 - 09:44 pm:

I also remember Ann Olson. My Mom and Dad (RCW) bought me my horse when I was 13. They bought my saddle and all of the gear at Ann's. Used to love going to her tack shop and looking at all of the stuff she had for sale, and the leather smell of those saddles!!

By Former Yooper, Chesaning, Mi on Wednesday, December 1, 2004 - 09:29 am:

Many moons ago, (Maybe early 40's?) they tried to have riding horses at the golf club on US-41 near Copper Harbor but had to abandon the project as the black flies nearly killed them. I never saw the horses but the stable was still there across the road from the lodge when I was a child. Guessing the new fly repellants now make it possible to keep these wonderful creatures up there. I can just imagine lovely rides on the many trails in Keweenaw.
