    Here's the rules:

    Has to be a horse, no super cute doggy shots, sorry!

    Does not have to be your horse, just a pic of a horse that always makes you go "WOW!" when you look at it.

    I'll start with a picture (fuzzy, sorry) of my horse's uncle...

    But I've posted this one a million times so I might as well post it again.

    my friend's Hanoverian stallion, I took this pic early this past summer.

    Bad quality I know, my camera back then didnt have a zoom, and so I had to crop it and enlarge it - you can still see why its a fave pic of mine though [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    but this is probably one of my favorites. I took it 2 summers ago at MSA, while waiting for the results of the medal final. The riders are both from my barn, and ended up 1-2 that year (the grey pony was first, the bay second).

    Everyone has seen it a zillion times, but I just love this picture. It's me on William, and a friend and her horse, at our first show.

    I have ton of favorites, but I still love this pic of me and my hunter - now semi retiredand leased out, and loving his new career as a novice pony club event horse - it was our last show together.

    Yup they were. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] I've never seen so many of us crying at a horse show before, but it just seemed so perfect that they would do that.

    I keep that picture on my wall here at school. I think it's a great reminder of what our sport is SUPPOSED to be like, no matter who/what the competition is.

    That brought tears to my eyes. *~Sniff~* So cool to see those kids so excited and happy and holding hands.

    He is a pure Lippitt* Morgan, and will always be my model Morgan Stallion. Big (for a Morgan, especially a Lippitt), dark, dark bay (almost black), and 100% STALLION!

    I had the pleasure of accompanying his owner when she trailered him from Arizona to Vermont to stand stud for a season. This was before the days of A.I., so I guess that dates me quite a bit, doesn't it?

    *Lippitts are the bloodline with the fewest outcrosses to other breeds and ZERO Saddlebred blood. They make wonderful outcrosses to other Morgan bloodlines, and are very cool horses in their own right. Can you tell I am BIASED??? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    I have a few of Java - but they're all sort of capturing "him". I'll post two. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    #1 Me and java on a ride, where I like to pretend I'm some medival princess galavanting around in the woods and day dreaming. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    #2 Java face - a familiar expression - sort of endearing even though it's so "curmudgeony ." It is *him* though.

    This is Red am me. You can tell from his eye, he is his own horse...not the best picture of either of us but it does capture his personality to a point...

    This has become my most favorite photo! It is of my nephew and our 22 year old puppy dog stallion. Can you tell my nephew adores him and vice versa?! He would sleep in his stall if he could.

    this is mine:

    http://pic4.picturetrail.com:80/VOL5...5/13404741.jpg

    or at least, one of mine. I have a really cute pic of a welsh pony sniffing noses with a begging corgi at a show... anyway this one was taken as my bio pic for my a cappella group in college (the horse is Remington, used to be a schoolie at Goucher, and one of my favorites) [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
