I have a Canon Rebel XTi. However, keep in mind that its the lens that makes a real difference, not the camera body itself. If you don't want to spend thousands on a good telephoto lens, the Canon PowerShot SD's are very nice point and shoots. Teeny tiny too...I'm actually looking at buying one of those for the times when I don't want to lug around 50 pounds of gear. Takes decent movies also.
Ok thanks. I was actually looking into the Rebel XSi and liked it quite a bit. A friend of mine might actually give me his older model Rebel camera for free! Thanks again for the info.

Its amazing to watch the horses work as a team to pull because it doesn't really work out that well if they don't pull in rythem!!!
Ha, that is exactly what its like! Those horses were jumping and jittering so much, they just wanted to go go go. As they walked passed the sled, you could see them sizing it up. The bigger the load, the more excited they were.

Mud, good luck in your camera shopping. Free is always good
