Thanks for the compliment, Soapweed. Means a lot from someone I respect.
Yes, I have a "soutpaw". Quite often gets me in a jam when roping off other peoples horses. Funny how a horse needs to learn everything twice, once for each side.
Faster Horses, my digital camera takes pics in colour and b&w. My wife like the b&w. As far as resizing the photo's, you should be able to resize them. Usually if you have any kind of a picture viewer you can resize your image from there under the edit option. About 600pixles x 400 or so will get 'em down to a size that sends ok.
We are going through a bit of a generation turnover here now, but I think in 5 or 6 years there should be lots of teenagers to wrestle. There is still no shortage of help though, around here branding is more popular than most hollidays. There is a lot of really good calf wrestlers around here, and most of 'em aren't afraid to yell to the newbies: "pull the tail ACROSS the rope, dang it!!!!!! and "lift on that rope!"
Please post your pics soon, I love to see pics. It's good to see other people, their operations and their country.
