    Default Pictures Thread

    I thought it would be fun if we could have a page dedicated to the best-of-the-best of your baby pictures (or stallion/mare if you have one ever so special).

    I know a picture is worth a thousand words and every once awhile I see a picture on a thread that just makes me say WOW. And then I can never find it again b/c I forget where I saw it.

    Which ones are your favorites and why?

    Too bad we can't have a COTH foals calendar

    Okay, this is hard for me b/c I have a very talented husband with a good camera so we have a lot of pictures I really love.

    I'm going through mine right now trying to pick my favs or I would start off, but hopefully somebody else will jump in with theirs

    I really like a photo of my big Danish mare, Chiquita Thais, I took the other day.
    Two little girls had stopped while out on a walk with their mom to pet the mares.
    Chiquita started giving them sloppy horsey kisses.

    Favorite mare and foal pics:
    http://s264.photobucket.com/albums/i...t=IMG_4264.jpg This mare ADORES her filly, even at going on 4 months, she just worships her
    http://s264.photobucket.com/albums/i...CF0036_JPG.jpg This is my 05 boy and his mom about two months before she died. Needless to say, this one I have in blown up version.

    That mouthy thing they do:
    http://s264.photobucket.com/albums/i...t=IMG_5428.jpg

    My favorite picture of all time I took a couple of weeks ago. It is the top picture here: http://www.welshponies.com/myrlin.htm

    I just ADORE the mare, and have decided I must keep the foal -- he is just amazing. At least in this breeder's eyes.

    Okay, I have a ton of pics from the last several years that I love...but this is my favorite from this year.
    I just love how the photo totally captures this colts essence and personality and how much of a show off he was at his inspection. Unfortunately, I can't take credit for it, the photo was taken by Marily Merrick of Merrick Studios.

    Oh man have I taken a lot of pics! But this is one of my favorites. He was 2 weeks old in this pic and SO happy to be out playing in the bigger turnout. This was his first day out there.

    oh boy...favorite photos?!? I've probably got over 8000 photos on my hard drive...yes, I am one of those people who is always taking pictures. But I've managed to narrow it down to 8. (8 out of 8000...that's not bad!)

    I adore this photo. It was recently used as the cover for MA Horse magazine. It was taken by Rebecca of Draygonfyne Design:
    http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/m...m_protrait.jpg

    A couple of other favorites from Rebecca's trip here...
    My retiree... http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/m...Jack_Linda.jpg
    My big sweet mare... http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/m...m_airytrot.jpg
    And for the non-horsy catagory... http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/m...yler-angie.jpg

    My favorite candid photos of the foals:
    Pompeii... http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/m...allop_crop.jpg
    Legacy... http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/m...egacy_head.jpg
    The 08 Group... http://i295.photobucket.com/albums/m.../foal_trio.jpg

    And last by not least, turning my niece into a horse crazy little girl. She was either 2 or 3 years old here...

    And Andy, her son by A Fine Romance, from the inspections as a 4 mo. old. He's 2 1/2 now! My how time flies!

    This is helping me cheer up after an exceptionally bad day...

    GREAT shots. I loff the idea of them all in one place. Perhaps we can have the thread archived when it's done.

    Flipped, I loff both of yours. The first is just CLASSIC and fabulous timing. The second, the mare is using *that voice* that she only ever uses those first few minutes. <goosebumps and teary eyed>

    I shouldn't have singled anyone out, because there are MANY amazing photos on here. Wow.

    Unfortunately I cannot see webshots at home on dialup. I dunno why.

    Here are mine...

    This is my Lugh (Luminesce- Lord Majikjaz x Magnifikat (*Malachit) and I knew it was 'the money shot' when I saw it. I love the potential... (3 days ) He is the Heir Apparent. I thought I wanted a filly, until I met him.
    http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y6/...newguytrot.jpg

    THIS is one of my all time favorites because it catches THAT moment. It's a little too early and too graphic for some folks. Others get it.
    http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y6/...adowmoment.jpg
    (the next photo is hysterical--feet not even out and Mumma's snacking. Needs her energy and all! )

    Photographically, I think *this* is one of the best shots I've made. I wish the mare wasn't wearing a halter, and it would be perfect. But I like to have one on in case things go wrong so I can get her up.
    http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y6/...minutesold.jpg

    Finally, this one is so poignant it hurts. She snuck this foal in on me at 2 in the afternoon. I was working overnights at the time, and had just gotten up from a nap (she was under camera overnight, but I'd put her out in the morning without so much as a rumour) Looked out the window to check on her and saw the very first presentation of the sac. Most beautiful, uncomplicated birth ever.

    I lost her just a month later.

    Now the more artistic ones (IM-notsoHO )

    InnisFleet (InnisFaeth X Norfleet's Windancer (APHA) http://www.angelfire.com/me/innisfai...ages/fleet.jpg

    InnisKeane (InnisFaeth x Lord Majikjaz (RPSI) http://groups.msn.com/WarsHorses/goo...o&PhotoID=2099
    (oops, not artsy, but I love it next to the other, as they're the same dam)

    Iris, (InnisFaeth X *Nico) http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y6/...inthelight.jpg

    My favorite picture of my *Malachit daughter, Magnifikat at about 300 days, with me wondering where I'm going to PUT a foal in all that April snow: http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y6/...e/2db5fe95.jpg
    (she foaled at 374, and nary a flake to be found. )

    And finally, a funny one... You can NEVER start training too early. Do you think he's a little deep though? http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y6/...vertoosoon.jpg

    PP that second one you posted is to die for!! WOW we have some talented picture takers and lovely horses.

    I forgot to add this one, hopefully it is okay. Durham and I (came as a surprise to me) made the cover of the USEA Omnibus just recently. If GreyDun hadn't told me I never would have known! http://s264.photobucket.com/albums/i...SEAOmnibus.jpg It seems funny being on the cover of anything, let alone something that people outside my family see, lol.

    Here is a headshot of my filly Odette by Olivier out of my mare Bella. I was surprised how still she stood for this picture, she usually just eating my camera instead.
