    Everytime I try to upload a picture, it says the file is too large for the server.

    I experienced this issue also, so I simply lowered the file size (i.e. quality) of the images I uploaded.

    Try adjusting the resolution to 96 and enlarging the pixel size. 96 resolution with 1000 pixel size should give a very nice image. You only need higher resolution if you intend to print.

    I've increased the file size quite a bit today. Please try again.


    And I love the photos of the horses posted.

    Still says too big. The file is 3.38 MB. I'll try to lower the size when I get to a computer and then post them.

    This is a great idea! My Instagram account is @highplainsminiaturehorses. I love taking pictures of my little herd.

    Well, it's been awhile since I came to visit but this was such a good idea, I had to come in and join the fun.

    I finally have a driving mini! The mare in my profile pic was started but we had an unfortunate wreck (neither of us was hurt!) that makes it unlikely she'll drive again (too frightened). So I began to casually search for a horse already driving. And then one of my friends put her little gelding up for sale in an effort to bring down her numbers. We had a wonderful summer and fall getting to know each other and expand our driving horizons. We took our first big outing in October and this photo was taken of us that day. It truly was a dream come true moment.

    I am loving these photos. I am making thumbnail sized images enlarged to full size. They need to be shown off.

    Here's one more. These are two sisters (same sire and dam) born a year apart. They came to our farm 6 months apart. They are two of the four we originally started with in 2009. It is just crazy to think we've been on this journey for 10 years now! The things we have learned, the places we've been, the people we've come to know (and love!). It truly is a dream come true on so many levels and I am still pinching myself daily.

    Here are 7 of my mimis I donated to The Barn for Equine Learning, she lost 13 of her Therapy horses in an arson fire 2 years ago, I called her up an ask if she wanted a couple she wanted the whole herd, I had way to many I did keep 3 but best thing for them I ever did they have a job and they Love going around to different places. Miss them every day but it was best for them. 2018 The Barn for Equine Learning cloudy bucky cj dancy jojo jet deedee my kids.jpg

    The Instagram account is pretty new, and glad to have you following @MajorClementine

    @JanBKS I love that photo and what adventures you've allowed your babies to have now with that Learning group.

    I hope I'm doing this right! These are pictures of my 3 miniatures and my beautiful pony! They Love each other and don't like being separated. My pony and one miniature are mares. The other two miniatures are geldings.
    I've had my pony for several yrs and only had the miniatures for two yrs.
