Later on I will move onto re-uploading all the old photos I used to have on UKshires, there are about 7,000 in total - most of the older photos were kindly shared with me by the photo and/or image owner back when UKshires was at it's peak, with people emailing me often hundreds of photos a week for inclusion. Unfortunately when the old UKshires server failed in about 2003 I lost a lot of information that used to accompany the photos, such as the horse's owners, location and bloodlines, and sometimes the horse's name, although I usually kept this in the filename. If you have extra information for me, please email me with the image filename and let me know
I appreciate that horses change hands, and opinions change, so if you either find a photo of a horse that you now own that you do not wish to be shared, please email me with the filename of the image and I will remove it. Likewise if you find an image that you previously gave me permission to use but now have changed your mind, please do the same.
