Looking for the best-of-the-best

Hello all~
It's been quite a while since I've been on hf regularly (the regulars from about a year ago can vouch ie lilruffian and kayty ) due to moving and getting a new job i've been crazy busy and haven't had a spare moment to really think about drawing. But recently I've been getting back into it. So because of that I'm in need of reference photos. I'm not looking to be swamped with photos tho (my computer takes forever to download-don't have a ton of time! ) So unfortunately I've got to set a few rules.
Here goes:
1. Please only post ONE or TWO pics. If I'd like to see more I will pm you. Even better, post a link where I can take my pick.
2. Please post GOOD QUALITY pics. If it's fuzzy or out of focus I won't be interested.
3. I'd love for unique/special poses. But head shots are fine. My favorite are action shots.
4. I've drawn and still draw people but for the time being I'm just going to stick with horses. So please HORSES ONLY.
Hate to sound so picky.
If you'd like to check out my work my website is Home - Fine Art or i've got a few threads here on the forum (Brandi's Art Journal)
And last but not least...
I would love to be hired for some commissions. I will do these for free as a thank-you for permission to use your pics. If you would like to obtain the original we can definitely chat.
Thanks to all that read this novel and can't wait to see some awesome reference photos!
Thanks again.

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. ~Aristotle

I've got a few for you, and if you need any more I have PLENTY. :)

Sugar's Favorite Brunette (the bay mare) "smooching" her gelding boyfriend, Missouri Fox Trotter gelding.

Galloping this winter in the pasture after the bay (again, Favorite) got therapeutic shoes.

This is my gelding Cole. I dont know if you can use the action shot, but his head shot is pretty sharp too. How much is an average commission?

I'd love to arrange something with you. I have loads of professional photos of action shots of me and my horse Bob in the beautiful scenery of Ireland. I'd be happy to let you have the high res digital negs in exchange for a painting 11x14.
My preference is my avatar. But take a look and let me know if you think a different pic would be better. You are the artist, after all, so you would know best. :)

BTW, I purchased all the dig negs so even if the have the photographer's watermark across them I can email you the original should you wish to choose any of these.

Below are links to photoalbums of professional pics on my facebook page. There are only a few pics in each so worth checking out
