Yes, absolutely, Sue, I would certainly appreciate receiving any photos you care to send. Please make them about 35 inches wide at 72 dpi or alternatively about 8 inches wide at 300 dpi. Send them as attachments to EMails to: office@equinestudies.org. Thank you! -- Dr. Deb

I'll see if I can get any conformational pictures of my Spanish Norman for you. He's the one in my avatar.

Do you still need pictures? I have plenty of my Spanish type Sulphur horses.

Hi Dr Bennett, are you still looking for photos? I see you don't really need any more pics of QHs, but my boy is a mismatched mess. 14.3h and 1100 lbs, with tiny 00 feet (one front is pigeon-toed and pronated, the other was slightly club when I got him), straight gaskins, cow-hocked, and weak stifles. If you still need photos, I'd be happy to send some.
Btw, your website is amazing, and it's been a Godsend for me. Thank you so much for sharing your incredible knowledge.

Yes, I am especially interested in horses with "less than perfect" conformation. Make the photos about 7 to 9 inches wide X 300 dpi, or else 35 to around 55 inches wide X 72 dpi, and send them to:

office@equinestudies.org

Include the horse's breed affiliation (QH or appendix QH or whatever it is), height, sex, weight, and age. Also a brief description of what he's used for, or what you had been hoping to use him for, and your name as you want it in the credit line.

Images should show the horse in standard conformation pose, i.e. weigt on all four feet, standing still; the main shot should be from left or right side (or both), and you can also send front and rear views. Make sure the front view shows the forelimbs from the base of the neck downwards, and that no bodyparts are cut off of any views. Don't worry if there's a handler in the shot -- by all means use a handler, it makes taking the pictures much easier -- we can usually make the handler "disappear" by means of Photoshop.

Thank you very much for the offer to send the photos! -- Dr. Deb

Dr. Deb,
I attempted to send you photos of my Choctaw gelding a few days ago. Did you receive them and if so were they sufficient for your needs or do I need to take additional ones?

Dear Rebecca -- Yes, the photos came through just dandy. I did not open your EMails or download the images until this evening because of our October anatomy class, which occupied 100% of my time and energy for the five-day period Oct. 24-28th. Your messages came in on the 26th but because I have no chance at all to do office correspondence during "anatomy week" it usually takes me a few days after the class is over to catch up.

Your Choctaw gelding is handsome and athletic, with a strong "Spanish" flavor to him. The photos you took are excellent and I shall be pleased, when the time comes, to include them in an article in our breed series in Equus Magazine.

As to that, folks: I do still need more photos -- essentially, anything BUT Quarter Horses (unless there's something really outstanding or amazing, good or bad, about your particular Quarter Horse).

I have just submitted the manuscript to my editor for the first, introductory installment of the breed series; we would anticipate being in the January or February 2014 issue. After that, the series will appear monthly and/or as I have a chance to produce them, given the rest of my work schedule -- generally that means a month or two off here and there. Nonetheless I think you can anticipate some very interesting reading, no matter what breed or type of horse you fancy.

Thanks again to all those who have sent photos, or who may yet send them! -- Dr. Deb

Brand new here and see this thread has been quiet for a couple months, but I was just wondering if you would have any interest in pictures of a 7-8 year old mustang gelding? He is from the Coyote Lakes HMA in Southeast Oregon.

Thank you.

Yes, absolutely -- Mustang photos would be of great interest. Thank you for the offer!

Send them at adequate size please -- at least 7 inches wide at 300 dpi, or 40 inches or so at 72 dpi. That plus good focus, lighting coming from behind the photographer onto the horse, avoid getting shadows onto the horse, etc. -- all so that you don't waste your effort through sending in a photo that Equus Magazine can't print.

We are grateful to all who have contributed to the never-ending effort to get good, non-commercially-biased information about conformation and the various breeds out to horse owners worldwide.

See the first installment of our new breed series in this month's issue of Equus Magazine! Cheers -- Dr. Deb

I have two haflinger mares, a mother and daughter. The daughter is more "draft" in build than the mother. Would photos of one or both be helpful? If I send you photos of both, you will have more choices.

They are still in their winter fuzzies now. Would it be better to wait until they have shed out before taking the shots?
