I don't know the year. I had a black and white photo and I colorized it. But given that it has a horse (dad didn't like horses) I'm guessing it was in the 20's or 30's. I know they had horses into the 30's and one time mom was hauling corn with the team along the rail road tracks. The train scared the horses and they took off running out of control. The problem was that the road up ahead crossed the tracks and mom was certain they'd never get across the tracks before the train. I no longer remember if she got them stopped or she made it. I know mom lived to be 99 so either way it turned out okay.
