    Default This it be right - 10/4 it's POSTED - see post #220, p.11

    If you haven't read BuddyRoo's moving tribute to those we have sent on, please do: http://www.chronicleforums.com/Forum...3&postcount=13

    She has graciously agreed to let me use this in a slide show honoring the horses we were blessed to have in our lives.

    Please send me your favorite photos (either just the horse, or you with the horse), and tell me the horse's name.

    I've set up a special e-mail address for this:

    thisItBeRight at gmail dot com

    Please try to send high-quality images, but if you can downsize them to no more than 800 x 600, that will help my bandwidth issues

    Thank you!

    I think you need to just make a website where people can also post their tributes!

    I will send pics when I have access at work later. Thank you for doing this!
    A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

    Might be a reason, never an excuse...

    Picture sent, RAR.

    Thank you!
    Homeopathy claims water can cure you since it once held medicine. That's like saying you can get sustenance from an empty plate because it once held food.

    Back in the day, when we were jingling for Baby Aiden to get a new liver (he just started 2nd grade, BTW - at an actual school with other kids, not home schooled!!!!), I had a site where people could send their photos in. Mainly horses, although a few dogs (and maybe a cat or 2 ) had photos there, too. I forget how many we had - lots and lots. Every time the page was loaded, it upped the jingles count.

    Baby Aiden! Awwww! I STILL have my curb chain hanging from the rear view of my truck. It has been there ever since the curb chain jingle thing started~ hubby couldn't understand why until I explained to him. Now he knows why it never gets removed.

    Thumbs up R-AR, remember the photo you made for me?

    I have attached it here for the rest of you to see. Oliver and I, five years ago, which I took with my cell phone. I sent it to R-AR and a few others because I love it. R-AR still had the photo of Willem that BBer and dear friend SoEasy took it a few weeks before Willem was PTS, and I absolutely cherish it.

    R-AR put the two together and, being such a fashion maven (she gives Aunt Esther a run for her money), even matched the lipstick and nail polish in the text.

    Great pic Coreene. No doubt Willem is always just over your shoulder.

    RAR I sent you my favorite pic of Dan and I. Hard to believe it has nearly been a year since his passing.

    I'll have to send a picture of the COTH Christmas Pony with his nose sticking through the bars and him dressed in his snow suit.

    Thanks so much for doing this.

    Yep. Not only was he a super cutie but he brought so many people together that year.

    Thank you, RAR.

    I sent the most recent pic I have of my guy. I'm working through the logistics of everything right now. It will only be another week or two before I have to say good-bye.

    Well, won't be today...maybe tomorrow. My dog had emergency surgery (now I've seen his insides) and I never did make it to the office.

    I still think this is a great idea and if there's any way I can assist, please let me know.

    I will send a pic of my BuddyRoo and me tomorrow.
