I've uploaded a lot of cattle pictures to the Avatars Gallery. So you can pick your favorite breed. Just make sure you are logged in, click on your name in the top right corner, then "Profile", "Edit Profile", "Edit Avatar", select "Gallery Avatar". You can select a different "Category" to see many different avatars. Then click in the little circle under the picture you like and click the "Submit" button.

Or better yet, upload a picture of your bull, brand, ranch logo or your own picture. Uploaded avatars can be no larger than 100 pixels high or wide and maximum 9 kB file size.

If you don't have photo editing software you can use the free online resizer http://www.resize-photos.com/. Just Browse to the picture on your computer and Upload. Change Width to 100 and Quality to around 10% and Download image to your computer. If it still won't upload to the Board make both settings even smaller.

Registered users can change their avatar anytime they wish. Any change is applied to all your posts.

If you have a problem, let me know.

You don't have to link to custom avatars. Just click the Browse button, find it on your computer's hard drive, click Submit and it will upload it for you.

He's a beefy rascal, ain't he? Amuses me when people think longhorns are thin tiny little cattle. :)

your right jinglebob. . . the longhorn breed has shown incredible genetic improvement in the last 10 years. . . our cows are getting bigger and our top bulls are well over a ton now. . .it was just not so 10-15 years ago. . . and to boot the meat is extremely healthy lower in cholestorol than chicken and fish. . . i always thought that our industry was missing out not marketing our beef as a health food and low and behold a group here in texas is creating a longhorn beef coop to do just that. . .i think it will be a very popular beef product. . .

I must not know what I'm doing as I can't get it below 18.6KB so it will not apply. I'll try it again tonight when I get in.

Works just fine for me, George. I made it the max size - 80x80 - and I show it to be 3.74KB. Not sure how you're trying to do it, but try uploading it directly from the image location in my Photobucket account:

1. Copy this location:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v665/Texpics/bulldog2.jpg

2. Go to your profile page.

3. At the bottom, paste that link into the blank: "Upload Avatar from a URL"

4. Click Submit

That should do it for you.

By the way, I tried looking for AmTracs for you, too. Google images has a lot of them, but none that I thought would turn out very good by the time it was resized to such a small image. But if you find something else you like, we'll make you another one.

There's somebody in verginia that sells longhorn beef, jerky, hides and sculls out of there own store. Cracker cattle, are a close cusin to them but are a lot smaller. There was a dna test a while back that showed how all the spanish bred cattle linked to each other. Terry what do longhorn calfs weigh at birth? Crackers, about 40lbs.

Here's a try cowhunter . The first one will probably open on this page but I think I might be able to find the one to load for your avatar like Texan did for George. Keep your fingers cross. :D


<a href="http://s2.photobucket.com/albums/y35/opgall/?action=view&current=IMG00164.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y35/opgall/IMG00164.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>


I don't know which one Texan posted that it didn't open on this page. Maybe somebody else can help us out.
