    I'm actually proud of this photograph. Taken with a disposable camera, iso100 print film.

    Was this supposed to be a sunset photo? I see a nice snapshot of a horse standing next to a fence.

    it's a picture of a horse looking into the sunset.

    As I said, it was with a disposable camera. I didn't even have control over the focus. :D

    Thank you guys very much for your comments.

    It was this picture that clinched it for me into buying some equipment. Purchased a Sigma SA7 and two autofocus zoom lenses on special. I'm sure there's far better stuff out there, but I just spent $909 on a Saddle for Dot and I really can't afford better.

    I plan on trying my hand at "sports" photography involving horses, jumpers and some of the western Reiners and Barrel Racers out this way...

    If I get anything halfway worth seeing, I'll be sure and post it...

    hey KBOC, nice horsey picture. good shot.
    I have a picture of 2horses and a donkey. But they're camera shy so they showed their a$$e$ instead.

    Of course, your horse has a better picture. :D

    Those, my friend, are either Clydesdales or some other big Draft horse.

    I can tell even from this angle that they'd be fabulous subjects if you can get them to move! Take carrots next time. :D

    But I love the three ass shot :D

    By the way, most of the pictures I took on those roles WERE snapshots.

    I did, however, use one to make a sort of "photoessay" of Dottie getting a new saddle...

    You sound like you know horses. I took only a few pictures of them, the sun being not in the right position from where the horses were standing. I did manage to get this one photo anyways.

    My friends over at http://www.equestrianconnection.com would love those photographs... but if you decide to post them there, be patient because they have a problem with their registry code... (it needs to be fixed and it delays registration)

    That's a magazine photo, BTW. It's money in your pocket, I think. Most of the consumers in the horse business are female, and they love crisp clear pictures of pretty horsies.

    They'll actually pay for pictures of horses?
