Three and a half years ago I bought an 18mo old filly.  I had hoped in the time it took for her to mature I would have a handle on my health problems and be able to do as I wanted, which was to saddle train her myself.  Well, my health had other ideas and my GI made me so fearful of the effects of the 6MP and steroids that I decided not to do my filly's saddle training myself at all.  Then, she came home saddle trained, and I couldn't ride her regularly, so she is turning 'sour' and becoming difficult to handle when I am able to work with her.  I now have a horse I don't ride because I fear injury.
 
It is hard to admit I bit off more than I can chew.  Well, really, to admit my health is preventing me from doing the things I should have been able to do, but cannot.  This young horse needs a job, she needs to be ridden regularly, and I cannot provide that. 
 
SO...I have approached the lady who boarded/trained her while I was recently in the hospital about a trade.  My younger horse (which she loved as a lesson horse) for an older, steady horse.  One who does not need steady riding coupled with instruction.  As a matter of fact, this older horse can teach ME about her gaited breed!  (Paso Fino)
 
I rode her.  She is smooth and sweet natured.  My friend had her delivered (with 2 others) three weeks ago.  All were broodmares who had been 'dragged down' by their foals and need good feeding to gain weight.  It was only by chance that I stopped by my friend's farm and saw these mares and was drawn to this one.  She is 14 and is called Nacimento, which I think is incorrectly spelled Spanish nacimiento, which means "birth".  I would call her Le Tigre because she has tiger stripes.

Crohn's and UC are pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry. 
I'd much rather laugh.

They won't open for me, either. I checked at another website where I posted them and they are showing up as images. At PB, they are there (not moved) and I had used "direct link" to post here.

I'll try all four options for one pic and see what works...

EDIT:  None of them are coming up.  I can only guess that PhotoBucket is having 'issues' because the pics are at PB and visible as images at other websites I've posted at.  Perhaps I'll see if I can contact PB and find out what is going on.

PB responded to my query and asked if I had changed any settings (no) or security measures (no). They were unhelpful in that regard. I have linked the same pics at another website today and they are clicking/linking fine, so I must assume the problem is with HW. The links are exactly the same, posted here and posted at the other site. I have checked my control panel here to see if there was anything I could select as far as settings, but it doesn't appear to be an option.
Perhaps HW just doesn't allow photos or links to pics?
