I put pictures in Photobucket.com first, then I load them onto here.
1. Once you've put a picture in Photobucket, highlight & copy what is in the "IMG code" block. At least that's the block that works for me.
2. Come back to this forum and paste that link into your message.
3. Hit the "preview post" button below and you should see your picture.
4. You should then also see your picture in the area where you are typing.
My three living Walkers are posted somewhere up above. I put Sultan (also a TWH) in this post just as a test so I knew the steps to give you.
He was a grandson of the Pusher C.G. And Mark of Carbon. Extremely intelligent, full of life and humor and liked to play tricks on me.
This was the last ride we would take before I lost Sultan to a freak pasture accident that happened one month before his fourth birthday. He was a mental giant and loved his "mom" beyond belief. That was 2-1/2 years ago and I am just now getting to where I can look at his sweet face in a picture without drowning the keyboard.
I am still thankful I was home when it happened. I was able to get the vet out within the hour to put Sultan to sleep. He is laid to rest in a fenced-off corner of the pasture where it's shaded, just below the barn.
That is a Dr. Cook's bitless on him and he loved that bridle.
Thanks WalkintheWalk for the info! What a touching story! He was a gorgeous boy that I am sure you are very proud of! You can never replace what you had with him, but can live with his wonderful memories! I'm so glad you were able to bury him on your land where you can go talk with him whenever you want. I know they can hear us talking to them even after they have passed over that rainbow bridge.... keep talking to him. It makes him feel good that you love him so much!
My wonderful Missouri Fox Trotter, Loki. The 'Purple' Horse
He was swatting at flies, but it made for a great photo ^^
Big smooch. He's starting to look a bit thin here due to lack of grass, shoddy hay, and the wrong grain (ours kept getting stolen T-T what a horrid stable). This was around the time it started getting really hard going out to see him without tearing up. We moved a few months at the end of July (I was absolutely ecstatic).
A week or two after we moved. He was only allowed 15 minuets a day on grass so he wouldn't colic himself (he's on it full time now). He has been a on a nine-pounds-a-day diet with alfalfa hay since we moved. He's now being slowly brought down back to his usual two-pounds-a-day of grain (thankfully, he's been bouncing off the walls)
This is how he's SUPPOSED to look, lean but muscular, and is only a a few pounds away from looking now. This was back when he was maybe three or four. When I bought him as a six year old, he looked the same, just fuzzier (it was mid-December) and with more of a belly.
I need to get some pictures of my two year old flaxen chestnut. He's from the same sire as Loki, just with a different ****. ^^
