I quite often take photo's of other peoples animals. But they are taken from a road/footpath or something, never close enough to be called trespassing. I think the only time I could have been accused of trespassing was climbing into a dyke (empty stream thing) to take a photo without the fence in the way. Round here the dykes are generally considered part of the road etc but I am sure it could be disputed.
And come on, don't you all get that little rush of happiness when a little girl sees your horse and bursts into a massive grin! If she has a camera and took a photo would you be upset?

What the heck do you guys, who don't like people taking pictures of your horses, think is going to happen? I have no qualms with anyone who takes a picture of my horse as long as I'm not in the picture. Now taking a picture of my kids would be a completely different subject.

I just want to jump on here and point out something else. Everyone is saying don't take pictures of others horses/property/kids/etc. How many of you board your horse and take pictures when they are out in the field with their pasture mates? You probably get some other people's horses in those shots. Do you have their permisson to be taking pictures of their horses? I went to a park with my baby cousin. I took pictures of her while she was there. Being a park there were many other children there (along with many other people taking pictures). I'm sure I got a lot of other kids in those pictures. So what. Should parents not be able to take pictures of their kids in public places just because, heaven forbid, they catch someone elses kid in the photo?

My understanding is that it is legal to take pictures of private items as long as you are not trespassing while doing so. However - if that item is a privately owned item - you can not make money off that picture without the owner's permission. Meaning - you can't sell it as prints nor can you use it in some form of marketing material.

What is legal does not mean its the same as morally right - those are two different things.

Yes I board and yes, I have asked permission to take pictures of my boy's pasture mate with the intent of sharing them with my friends online. That's the obvious thing to do. :roll:

How is that the obvious thing to do? I would never even have considered that one would need permission to have someone elses horse in pictures. It's not that big a deal. In fact, it's not any sort of deal at all. Like someone else mention, what do you people think is going to happen if someone else takes pictures of something belonging to you? I swear poeple freak out about this stuff just because they can.

Because people shouldn't be posting pictures of other people's [insert whatever you want] without permission. Maybe it's not obvious to you, but to a lot of people it would be.

I have to get all sorts of permission to take peoples pictures and use them at work.

Maybe it's just because I take thousands of pictures on a fairly regular basis but I truely find this ridiculous. Ever taken a picture of something in a parking lot? It would be virtually impossible to find all those car owners and ask their permission to post that photo. And I bet 99% of them wouldn't give a rats butt that you got their car in a picture and would be wondering why the heck you are wasting their time asking if you can post said picture.

I ask when I take the picture.

I think this matter may be another agree/disagree thing. Some are going to say it's ok some are going to say it's not. It's not going to really change anything....
