    My barn owner had to put down her mare the other day. Us boarders are trying to come up with an idea for a keepsake/memory-gift and one of the ideas is getting a picture, blowing it up, and framing it...

    Anyways, I have narrowed them down to this handful. The pics kind of stink in terms of angle and positioning - they were all candids, not really taken to be used for this sort of thing... but that's all we have, so please help me pick the best:

    [Please keep in mind that she was 33 yro (and yes, she did have a lump on her throat which was not life threatening and did not cause her pain...)]

    (^^^ this is one of my favs, except I don't think it's suitable for this type of thing, since filly is also in the picture)

    like 2 and 8 but that's coming from someone who knows nothing about horses except that they're pretty!

    I like 6 and 7 the best....the more I look.

    6 is more "Woah! HI!" --that look makes me smile

    and 7 is more "Yum! Another treat please" or "Nyaah!" with the tongue--it makes me giggle and is has the prettier background

    These both are flattering pics of her.
    AND her ears are perked so she looks happy!

    I like the last one with the filly too, its a great one! If it were me, I wouldnt care if there was another horse in the pic---just makes for more memories!

    I like them all but I think a body shot would do great. I know that I could only have 1 picture of my beloved pet, I would want a body shot. If I could have 2 it would be a body shot and a head shot. Preferably one in the pets favorite spot or doing something they loved to do.

    7 seems to have a lot of personality to it. It does depend a little on whether it's really what her personality was actually like. 1 is good too and might be best for this sort of reason, but I think I like 8 the best, she looks sort of 'ageless' in it, neither old nor young. In any case, I think you should put them all on a CD for your friend, or print them all out and put them in a little inexpensive photo folder.
