Friesians on the Internet.

If anyone ever looks up Friesian horses because they're interested in learning a bit.

You'll find the first link is normally a Wikipedia article.

friesian - Google Search

Well if you click the Friesian wiki article...
Friesian horse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You'll see a photo I took of Keegan! He's the main Friesian photo for the Wikipedia article.



Awesome huh! I'm proud. :)

I've seen this photo a dozen times!
If any of your horses go missing, they aren't in my backyard =]

What part of Indiana do you live in?

I was thinking... maybe you should copyright it before someone claims they took it. O.0

I agree! That would be horrible! You should definitely get the credit for it...

I have photos all over the place, lol. We (Emily Jewell the owner, Keegan and I) are in South Western Indiana, in Greene Co.

Well, there isn't much you can really do on the 'net. Once something is public it's kind of free rein no matter what you do. Wiki has me listed as the owner of the photo but the copy right release says that it's going to be posted and anyone can take it. It's just one of those things. As a matter of fact some of my photos are being used in a scammer Friesian horse sales ad on Horse Topia.com right now. They even have my watermark all the way across the photo, lol.

Well thank you. :) Wiki credits me, and I agreed to the copyright release for them to use it.

Oh wow, that's horrible about the scammers on HorseTopia... did you report them to the site?

Ah, well, at least you're getting credit on Wiki. :]

They have been reported. What's really funny is this idiots paid the 15 a month or whatever for the photo ad.

It's one of those deals where they tell you what a great horse it is, they don't want to make money they just want to see their "baby" go to a great home.

So then they tell you to send over your bank number, and details. That way they can take the money they need to haul the horse to you.

Once you get your amazingly cheap fantastic all around show/trail/everything Friesian you can pay them the rest.

Anyone who falls for that deserves it, but I guess I'm also flattered they liked my photos enough? Hahaha.

Someone actually found them and e-mailed me because they recognized my watermark. The ad's have been reported.

Glad to hear it.

And who gives anyone their bank information? O.0 Especially over the internet.

Flattering though, in a bizarre, kind of illegal way... ha ha ha.
