    OK-Have been trying for 1/2 hr. to get 3 pix to come up and only various combinations have made it up ie....1 or 2 then 1 correct pic and a pic I didn't even try to put up then NONE would come up so here is a pic that WILL come up(and they're ALL correctly sized so????) and its not one I really wanted on here but its of my pekin drake handsome harrison hoosier head(4h duck) and he is 8 yrs. old now. think my computers just too old(6 yrs.) and probably has viruses(making excuses for my inability to get pix up!!!!) go to bed. now this text is coming after the fact and I just looked at the preview that showed a pic of my 4h duck a minute ago and its NOT on here now??!!??!! arghhhghghghg!![​IMG]

    Sorry you are having trouble with the pics. It is a terrible challenge for me, too! But, I love your barnyard friends. What a great looking gang! Thanks for posting pics!

    Your time wasnt wasted- The pics are lovely. Harrison is just gorgeous. I love getting shots when they have their bills open. Always looks great with a caption bubble [​IMG]

    I used to have the same frustration. 5 year old computer and dial up connection. It was dreadful..I got an upgrade two weeks ago, and cant believe the difference. I wish I had been able to do it sooner.

    I don't have the exact some problems but it takes 45 mins for each photo to load [​IMG] I just uploaded 7 pictures, so I have been on here a while [​IMG]

    Have you tried using an online storage service for your pictures like Photobucket, or Flickr perhaps? That's what I use (Photobucket) and it works wonders. Especially if you're on a slow dial up service. If you are on a dial up, it's still going to take considerable time to upload the pictures to any online storage service. But, when it comes time to post them to BYC, you'll find it to be a pleasure. Give that a try next time. I'm sure you'll agree, it's the only way to go! [​IMG]

    Nice pic of Harrison by the way! He looks like a bit of a character. [​IMG] A 34 year old Arab? [​IMG] [​IMG] I don't know much about horses, but even I know that's OLD for a horse!!!! What is Cushing's? Is it something that older horses experience frequently? Does it cause him any pain or discomfort? How's his personality? Sweet? Mean? Middle of the road? Inquiring minds want to know! [​IMG]

    why-thank you all for getting thru my tantrum nicely-I WAS mad and sleepy so that doesn't help. cushings is quite common in animals(worked at vet hosp. for 30 yrs.(small animals) and in horses it makes them unable to shed their hair proper in the spring.
    cushings is the adrenal gland screwing up? he grows a ton BACK in the fall its just slow coming off the last 5 yrs.. he himself is not painful and I really do not know much more about it(but if he ever seems painful, will have the vet out)ruby the dog is an 11 yr. old suspected black siberian. she came from shelter and have actually had a belgian shepherd breeder tell me(when she was pup) thats what she WAS? but the area she came from is NOT a big fancy dog breeding area so we've narrowed it down to mostly siberian with her temperment,looks, and lots of roo-rooing she does. I ramble. thanks again!
