Something as simple as changing the angle of the shot can do wonders for highlighting his strengths and camoflaging weaknesses. For instance, his headshot with the silver halter: my eye initially settles on his somewhat coarse throatlatch, because it is overly emphasized in that particular picture - angling him toward the camera even a few degrees would seriously improve his overal look. He's an attractive guy, so make sure his marketing photos show it! Love the orange in the riding pic, that was a great color choice on him.

    And I'll echo the above posters - get a proper domain name! I have a hard time taking freebies seriously in this day and age - it just doesn't look like a "real" business. The domain name itself will only run you $15/year, but I highly recommend you lock it in for at least 5 years.
    Thank you for your incite. I agree fully on the domain thing. I didn't have great pictures of Bentley so I didn't use the horrible ones. I tried to use the good ones. I'm praying that they send me pictures so I can post them on there. I need to get conformation pictures with a professional. I hope to do that sometime.

    A friend of mine that did the advertisement said she would do his website but it'll take a few days

    If you get signed up at a host and your domain registered in the meantime you'd be all ready to go once the website is ready - from the time you register a domain until the time that it actually works worldwide is usually about 12-48 hours - it has to propagate.

    I don't think I saw the original version, but looks ok to me. I like the wood paneling
    I use tiptopwebsite for my farm and car club and I like it a lot.

    I would actually get rid of the wood panelling... It doesn't look the most professional, to me.

    Everyone has given good advice, though. Your own domain name will make you look professional and prepared.
    Can't wait to see the finished product <3

    No advice on the website itself but the advertisement of him on the main page should be redone IMO. The artist didn't take the time to make me want to take a second glance at him or the rest of the website, my first impression from the advertisement was that is very done very quickly. Which isn't my opinion about your boy at all, I like him. Too hard of an eraser brush was used and his legs look very, very odd. The artist also didn't take the time to clean it up, there is leftover background around his head, the tail is very blunt etc. This is my personal opinion only but the blue background and font used also looks very juvenile. Some of the smaller text is also quite difficult to read.

    Bentley wasn't featured in the ad except the info...I have someone working on the website...Part of the quick job was due to needing it done by Wednesday evening since the trainer left this morning. She also told me that some of the graphics were a little off on the picture of Totally Too Radical (main picture). I'm new to Photoshop and all that so I try to learn this stuff. I take no offence to what people have to say. It's a learning experience.

    If it makes you feel better, your Photoshop stuff looked pretty **** good to me. I'm hopeless with Photoshop so anything that shows a basic understanding of it always impresses me. ;)

    I agree with everything else that has been pointed out.

    The wood panel background is cheap and cheesy looking. The title page font is hard to read/look at. You want something that is easy to read.

    Put his pedigree on his page as an image, not as a link. A lot of people want to see it right then and there and don't want to be clicking links all over the place.

    Justify the font. It makes the page look cleaner.

    Your best bet is to pay someone to create the website for you and use high quality professional pictures. It's money very well spent.

    Oh yeah...I used to do this in a high school class and I forgot how to use it after graduating. I learned how in my junior year...I can always get my brother to try it LOL He's helped me on one ad I used a couple years ago.

    I always assume my work is good. ;)
