    1. IDK aboutya’ll but it’s not working for me. Nothing will show up or let me click on it. I have Adobe Flash Player, but it still isn’t working!

    2. The Saddle I bought can not go on my horse because the bodies are a different way than the saddle. The Halter should be able to go on the horse. It is backwards as well.

    3. Pretty good. I didn’t have any trouble using it, except that the halter can’t go on the horse and the saddle doesn’t fit some of the bodies.

    4. I don’t really care for them. it takes a long time to load and you should be able to have the choice to take the horse stable off your page. because like me i won’t ever use it.

    5. i think the avatars are really cute but i just wasted points on a saddle that is the wrong way…is there anyway i can flip it??????

    6. it’s realy wird. whats the point? i made one but now i want to deleate it but i cant. the look stupid becouse you cant make the parts fit to together. also they look very chidish and inmature.i dont like it and DO NOT want it on my page!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    7. It is awesome!!! I love it. When I was getting points there was nothing I could do with them and then you created the avatar and stable manager I had a ton of syuff I could use them with. Thank You!!! God Bless and keep up the good work

    8. I think it is pretty cool, but I think more options, such as bodies or heads or necks should be available. But overall it is pretty cool! Good job!

    9. I like the avatars a lot. They’re cute and creative, but I wish you had a better color selection because I have a profile for a mare that is NOT shiny white. She is a beighish white, and the color that’s closest to hers makes her avatar look cremello! If you could have a greater selection of colors, the avatars would be better.

    10. I want to buy an english saddle from the avatar shop, but I’m not sure if I can get it to turn around so that is will sit on my avatar’s back! Can anyone help me?

    11. I really love Horse Channel and the Horse Illustrated magazine, and I am really glad I found your website through it. It is the funnest horse website I have an account on, but the one thing I would like is to have more items in the avatar shop.

    12. I love the avatars! I have a few hints if you want them…first go to your horse’s profile. Then erase the numbers at the end of the address on the address bar. Then type in this number:86804. Then press the arrow or go or whatever to get you to the page. It should take you to Miss Muffet’s profile. Please vote, leave a comment or question about the avatars and I’ll comment back with a hint!

    13. We need to be able to add forelocks, but more importantly, markings, like blazes, socks, paint patterns, and appaloosa markings!!

    14. Why can’t we have more horses added to our stable? I really wanted to add a friend I regularly blog and got a message that my stable was full. You can never have too many friends?

    15. YES YES YES..y’all need to put spots for the PAINTS! Paints are like the 3rd most popular horses,(Lets include the Appaloosas in this) and we have no spots or splotches of paint to put on them! It may be complicated,but horsechannel would be much more popular if you did it. Thank you!

    16. I agree on having options for paint horses as well as any horses that is not a solid color. Right now my paint horse is completely white because I have no option for his markings.

    17. i agree that you should get marking for paint horses. But people that have paints, I have a paint too and I got creative and put the star thats on the face thing I put it on the body of my paint Shady and made it white so that those are the spots. So try and use the star as spots for you’re horse. its in the face collum

    18. this is the stupidest thing ever! you cannot match colors for a palomino! or any other horse for that matter!
      THIS SUCKS!!

    19. This is alot of fun. The color thing could be easier. Spots for paints would be nice but I improvised like the other comment suggested with the star. And how do we add more horses to our stable? I own 3 and would like them all in there.

    20. I personally think there should be more horse bodies and markings. Maybe you guys could also lower the “price” on the saddles and stuff you can buy.

    21. I love creating although there could be more items at the shop. It’s very hard to make a pinto or paint so I recomend more markings. I think thats basicaly covered everything. Good luck with improving it!

    22. I think there should be more bodies like Appy bodies and Paint bodies, so you don’t have to spend a ton of time putting the spots on the horse.

    23. I really love making an avator for my horses profile. But it would be easy and nicer if they were different body shapes in a form of a jumping position, or barrel racing, cool things like that. Also, I think there should really be more items at the shop. Plus, my horse, Robert has some spots and it would be easlier to just have a body with different spots! But overall, this program is great!

    24. once I got the hang of diminishing and enlarging the body parts, it was a lot of fun making my horse avatars. the colors were pretty tricky though. what about some basic black, white and gray?

    25. I love the avatar thingy!! ~LOL~!!! i think u need more stuff though. my horse has a lot of stuff!! but i like the holloween idea i love that!! well thanks !!

    26. A BRIDAL, PAD, MAYBE YOU COULD AD SOME STUFF SO THEY COULD BE DRESSED FOR WESTERN OR ENGLISH, AND THE HALTER IS PRETTY USELESS. IT IS AN INTERESTING IDEA THOUGH. CUTE.

    27. Nice treats for the holiday.Thank you for the gifts but I don’t celebrate holidays though. Can we have some inexpensive non holiday rewards?

    28. that was fun, but nothing on there looked like my Grey. A bit of work and it was fun. I would like to see more things on the avatar too.

    29. i like the game but i think it should have more stuff because me and my moms horse has a bit of brown and white but they only have All 1 color. i would also like to see barns.

    30. i love making avatars. it is a little hard at first, but u get used to it! attetion: PLEASE VOTE 4 SHADOW IN LOVING MEMORY! TRYING HOTD

    31. I like the avatars but I just spend about 600 points on accessories only to find that there’s no bridle in the avatar store, no girth on the saddle, and the halter can’t actually go on the horse’s head!!

    32. I’m not fond of the horse avatar. The art used for the horses and backgrounds are not near as good as they should be. Little effort was put into this applications by the creators, it’s been put together poorly and I would like to see something a little more worthwhile for our time.

    33. I can’t get the avatars for the horses to work, i have adobe flashplayer, and shockwave player as well, but it won’t let me create one for my horses

    34. What’s going on?? I can’t get my avatar stable at all and wanted to add some stuff from the store but it won’t let me click on it!

    35. In response to Sarah from Birmingham, when you click on the saddle a black box pops up around it. You will see three black shapes on the corners of that box. the one in the bottom left-hand corner that looks like a circle is the one you need. To switch the saddle around, click and hold the circle like you were going to rotate it, but instead drag it toward the other side of the screen. It should change the way it is facing. Hope this helps! Please visit Dixie’s page, Thanks!

    36. To make the saddle rotate you click the box and sling it to the other side. (I just found out after reading the first comment and then I tried an other way because it would not work for me either! I hope I help you!

    37. I can’t get the saddle to turn the other way. Can anyone help me? I read the comment from Megan in Schriever, LA, and it doesn’t work for me!

    38. In response to Rachael from CT. Ok, well when you click on the saddle, you see 3 grey boxes. one to rotate, one to delete, and one to make smaller or bigger. click on the one you use to make smaller or bigger. take it and move in a direction that makes it smaller. keep going. you will notice it gets smaller and smaller and smaller. ok, well, now it is very thin. keep moving it in that direction until it ‘flips’. i hope that helps, it took me a while to get it. if you have anymore questions; i am sandy from horse channel # 100881. come visit me soon!

    39. I love the whole idea, but you guys should put horse blankets on there for 200 points, or horse boots, or maybe let people create a rider to be with their horse. Thanks

    40. Hey this is cool / But/ you need to have like more pictures and crapp like that then it will bring people to this page and so you will get better at this crapp thank you pce out Amber

    41. Today was 45 degrees here in FL. However, I rode Liam and he was very spunky. He actually likes the cold weather. Since there are no shows during the winter, we spend most of our time going to riding clinics or practising the different tests so that when spring comes around we will be ready.

    42. Season Greetings
      Yesterday, I had another riding lesson with my trainer, Judge Yvonne Holste. I learned what the poll on the horse is and how it should be flexed. We also worked on my keeping my fingers closed around the reins. That was difficult. Best to you.

    43. The horse avatars are and excellent idea! I love changing mine around a little at a time to make it better and better! I suppose it would be better if there were more options, but you can do a lot on your own on this, and it’s really fun!

    44. I think that the avatars are great and i loved making both of mine i only wish that we could put the halter on our avatars and being able to add more than five to our stable would be great to but otherwise i love the avatars there great:)

    45. It took me a really long time to fiqure out stuff! It is still really awesome though.I wish we could put the saddles and halters on the horses.

    46. This is alot of fun!!! great addition to the web site. my only question is, I find when i was adding new body parts that some of them would lay above or below the others. making my horse look like frankenstein. no matter how much i clicked on them to put them above or below the other item. It got very frustrating.

    47. I love the avatars. I like to look and see how creative the members are using the various pieces to create theirs. Some of them are really cool and some are just funny and cute.
      Would love to see some more options for faces and necks and such. Especially white markings. More shapes maybe.

    48. What is the point of an english saddle that isnt even able to go the correct direction on your avatar how stupid. Or if it does its un obvious to me

    49. i dont like the avatar or stable at all. i find the whole site a little hard to get around on. they could organize it a bit better.

    50. they could use some inprovement, well lots of it. but there are pictures (real ones) already so whats so bad about them?

    51. hi, i think you should be able to select the horse’s breed and that way you would have the body type, and the pick what color it is….so the body parts aren’t all different shapes, colors and sizes

    52. HI I could not make them any more beautiful than they already are!!!-What fun I had-thank you, matching colors and size to scale was, well FUN, to see them look like they do-i like it

    53. i really think u should make a easier way to make paint avatars because, i couldn’t find out how to make chyanne’s avatar into a paint.

    54. You guys REALLY need to consider people who own Paints and Appaloosas. I just made an avatar for my paint filly,and she has a lot of markings. I can’t do all of them without exceeding the 50 “Items” Please allow us more. All I have now is the horse,and I can’t add anything else to her avatar. It’s just very inconsiderate on Horsechannel’s part. Thank You.

    55. ya what about us people with paints and appolusas.i’m haveing a hard time geting rony’s avetar. we don’t need a limet on horses in our stables. u need more items. thank u

    56. you have to use the markings from the “face” options and tweak them. you can make them stretch or shrink then change their colors so you can make markings on your horses. you can get creative with the stuff that’s given by reshaping it and changing color…like making hay or grass out of the “mane”. go to the directions and you’ll see how to manipulate things better.

    57. i dont think that there really is a way to put the
      halter on your avatar and have it look good im not really sure why they would make a halter that no one can use lol

    58. I really like the HorseChannel website. There are a lot of different icons to click on that you can check out and see what is going on in the horse industry today. It is nice to know that there are places we can go to get the latest information from experts about health, training, breeding and showing, etc… So we can learn more to keep our horses healthy and happy and have them around with us for a long time.

    59. THESE ARE ALOT OF FUN, IT TOOK ME A WHILE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO PUT THE STALL IN THERE, BUT THE MORE I PLAY THE MORE I LEARN…. THANK YOU HORSE CHANNEL

    60. You change the backround by: When you are fully on your advatar, look up at the right hand corner and find where it says, show/hide backround. then click on show then click on the backround that you want if you change your mind and want to exit click hide. Hope that I helped you!

    61. I THINK THERE SHOULD BE MORE OPTION’S ON THE ADVAR SHOP THERE IS ONLY SO MANY TIMES SOMEONE WANTS TO BUY TREATS OR SADDLES, THERE JUST ISNT TO MUCH TO BUY

    62. This is stupid, we shouldn’t have to make our owen horse. They should make it 4 us becuse it is hard 2 make our owen mine looks stupid.

    63. A good idea is since there aren’t forlocks, just shrink a mane to be really small and place it between the ears.

    64. true that! also believe that they are still here spiritually! i have seen a horse that died 2 months after the fact!

    65. to get your saddle you have to click on the bottom left “category” button until you see “tack”. you should find your saddle there. look under “fall”, “spring” etc for the free icons they give at holiday times.

    66. Right above your avatar it says “show/hide backgrounds”. if you click on it you will see the 3 background choices: stall, pasture or arena. pick which you want to change it.

    67. Something needs to be here to make it easier to make spotted and paint horses. If there is something, and I don’t know about it, someone please let me know. 🙂

    68. Like most of everyone said, I like the avatars. I wish that you could have like spots for the paint horses and appoloosas! that would be nice!

    69. Jessica,
      If you go to the face markings you can pick one of those and shrink them so that they look like stripes on your paint or spots on your appaloosa. Hope this helps! You can go under the breed paints and try to find Tonka(who is my paint) and look and see how i did his.

    70. There should be a way to make the avatar into a pinto, rather than a solid color horse with white legs and tail. It was fun, though.

    71. ok for the saddles you just grab that arrow that makes stuff bigger and flip it he way you want it to go. i dont know if this will help but hey i tried! 🙂

    72. I really like the idea of avatatrs but I think that they need to have a whole horse put together for you already! Haha it is too hard for me! they should also have like jumpers that are already made for you and stuff but I stll love the avatars!

    73. I am enjoying playing with the avatars, it makes be be creative to try to get the markings on my Paints. However, it would be nice to have a few different shaped spots to get them better!

    74. it was fun, but i had a little bit of trouble with sizing everything, it would be nice to have bodies, like it was already suggested, but it was still really fun to play around with everything :]

    75. The avatars are a great horsin around way to have a buddy list of the people you like to talk to here on HI. Thanks HI great idea.

    76. I agree! I have a strawberry roan appy! She has to be this cream color b/c there is no way to make her look like a roan! Somebody should change that!

    77. I think they are all right, there should be an option for the different types of paints and appys because they are beatiful and it isn’t fair they can’t express them.

    78. we need horsey colors. like roan, and palomino and dapples,and white.Also, an easier way to make spots and paints.OH! and more manes! They dont match up very well!

    79. We REALLY need paint horses! Spots! and maybe a way to save colors you create? like with the red, green, and blue color switch thing there needs to be a custom color saver or something.

    80. We need paint horses and more tails and more legs none match. also a way to save the colors you make and spots –Thanks

    81. Sam, and everyone else: you can change the sizes/shapes so that they fit better 😉 Click on the item, and then click and drag the little empty square at the corner of the item to make it skinnier/larger/smaller.

    82. i love the way this site is sett up, keep it up. It would be bicer to have more choices for mane and tails, eyes too, but other than that its great, im having a blast!

    83. i think that this is great but i think that you shoudl be able to have as many friends as you want. i can see the meaning of the limit in your stable, but the friends should be unlimited, b/c yoiu can never have enough friends in life!

    84. the face tool will not move from the spot where it appears
      It would be helpful to be able to lock objects together in order to reposition the entire avatar at one time

    85. Hi don’t know if you figured out already how to make a horse but if not you have to click on edit and it will bring you to the page to make your avatar horse.

    86. Who ever wants to be blog buds, type in Quincy or Dillon, and you see a paint Horse, or American Paint Horse! Quincy has two blue eyes, with a bald face, and 3 socks, Dillon is a light brown and white Paint, and has two brown eyse, he has beautiful markings. They should be the 1st one on the list. Well, if you want a blog buddy just put a comment on one of the horses profile page, thanks and have a great day!

    87. Hi horse channel people. I think this hole website rocks. I have a boy horse named dancer, His the sweetest horse Iv ever met. Thank you horse channel. (:

    92. you have to be creative with the parts they give you. like, if it’s a part that’s supposed to be hair, you can flip it over and turn it green and suddenly you’ve got grass!

    93. hi, im very new at the avatar horse, please help me. im not getting the basic instructions on how to move ot other bodies or how to change the color of the body of the horse..please help

    94. Hi for those who are having trouble figuringout how to do stuff on the avatar I hope I can help! first under “bodies” all of them have different confirmations so click on the one you think fits your horse best. If it turns out you do not like it, click on the body part (a box will appear around it) and click on the upper left small square. If you would like to change the “color” pf a body part then you have to click on the body part (a box will appear around it) and down in the box that shows the 3 colors (bottom right hand corner) adjust the red, blue, and green bars until you find the color you like and click the box next to the red blue and green bars. If you would like to change the “size” of something then click on the piece (a box will appear around it) click the lower right hand square and drag it up/down or left/right to adjust the size.
      I really hope this helps all of you who are having troubles trying to figure it out! 😀 I’m a new member and it took me a little bit to figure this out too and I love to help others!
      Have fun! &&
      Keep Ridin’,
      Kelli

    95. Marla- You go to the top of the picture and click the change background. It will take you to a menu with a show ring, pasture, and stall.

    96. I tried this many times before on our older laptop and it wouldn’t work o it nor our regular computer but i went to school and tried it on their newer computers and it worked perfectly then we got a new laptop and it works so i think it takes a program download or something thats on the new computers but not on the older ones

    97. my horse is a paint and i ended up using the facial markings and placed them on him i dont know if it will work for everyone but it did fine for me : )

    98. I cant seem to get myhorse which might i say is very good ….. on the screen .. for my home page ! im confused please help a fellow horse lover out <3thanx .. someone help me
      !!!imma blonde !!!he he ha ha lol

    99. you earn points by posting a blogg every day, voting once every day, subbmitting a poll once a week, taking a quiz once a week, sending an ecard once a day. or you can go to activity chart.it’s on your home page where you see how man points you have.

    100. I give up, I can’t get this avatar. I just wish you could upload one that is already made up then color it the way your horse is. I don’t LIKE IT!!

    101. this is really good for if you are bored or having a bad day. it’s cool. thanks for putting your time into making this! -horselover4eva!

    102. to add things to your pasture: first go to the avatar shop, where you can buy som thing with the points you have earned, then go back to “My horse Avatars” then select the horse you wish to add the items too. Then, in the catacgory section, select the catagory you found the items in when you bought them in the store, and simply click on them 🙂 they should appear for you to place on/by your horse. Hope this is understandable, im not the best at directions. 😛 have fun!

    103. I’m pretty confused with the whole stable thing too… can someone explain?
      oh and we are having a big sale on all our horses, they are all up for sale. check out our website if anyone is interested! http://www.hotspurhill.webs.com but if anyone is interested in Bree, (my grey mare) they should contact me asap, someone else is interested in her!!

    104. I don’t get this avatar either. I can’t get these horse pieces to look right. So mine is upside down in the pasture. He’s not dead. LOL

    105. i’m back!!!!!!!!! ponyluver is my name n’ horses are my game! ha,ha!
      hey-this is fun! the stable is e-z to create,once you find out how to do it, of course!by the way, my points had expired-4,125! boo,hoooooo!!! i’m so mad!

    106. i think what you got going on is pretty cool. however i have a fe seggustions. i ,for one, thing we should be able to ride our avatars. WHO IS WITH ME?!?! type x in the comment section if you agree. i also think that when making pintos/paints it is a freak rip of. you guys should have a whole section about pain/pinto colors . WHO IS WITH ME ?!?! type x in the comment section if you agree. other wise i realy love thewhole avatar thing. it is so great that 13-80 year people can express thier scincirity or creativity. i also enjoy the fact we get to create our own and you dont just match our dicriptions in the prfile with the equine that come out on avatar. i do however think youre dog avatars need heavy improvement. in that part of youre channels gratly consider havin avtars foreach breed. honestly the dog avatar thing sucks. i hpoe you all have a equsisite day . honestly ~ Jill porters, of forkuro MA with the code hWkVLF

    107. jill, you have issues, though i do think making the avatars even more inneractive is a cool idea. i think the avatars are really cute, though i do wish the mains “fit” the necks a little better and everything was a little more proportional.

    108. Why does dog channel get fun things like costumes to dress up their avatars and we don’t? Horse costumes would be very cool,how about it HC gives us some of the things like you have on dog channel. The backgrounds are cool like the one of tree’s and the snow one for at Christmas time would be realy good or how about the Halloween one that looked fun. So how about it can we have the same things as Dog Channel?

    109. Yaw need like a barn thing that you can buy and so you can buy like a fence, hay, water buckets, barns, what ever. And some spots and patches for paint and appaloosa horses:)

    110. i am the 3 person who thinks we need MORE items to purchase. mabe there should be a vote. mabe people could post the letters WNMI if they agree with us. oh and alex linwood to make a avatar you move the dials on the bottom of youre avatar creation page until it is the color of youre horsethen you pull out heads bodies tails and acssesories to create something that resembles youre horse by the way every one VOTE FOR BELLA OR BEYONCE OR BOTH IN THE POTO GALLERY. BEYONCE IS A CHESTNUT AND BELLA IS A FRSIAN AND YOU CAN VOTRE FOR THEM PLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASE A MILLION TIMES JUST PLEASE VOTE FOR BEYONCE OF BELLAPLEASE A MILLION TIMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    111. I AGREE. MORE ITEMS WOULD BE AWESOME. HOW ABOUT ADDING A PEPPERMINT STICK UNDER THE TREATS SECTION FOR ONE? BALES OF HAY AND WATER BUCKETS WOULD BE GOOD. ALSO, HOW ABOUT “STENCILS” TO PUT ON THEIR HINDQUARTERS, LIKE THE TWINKLE AWARENESS RIBBON, AND THE PATRIOTIC STARS AND FLAG TOO. THAT WOULD BE NEAT. JUST A THOUGHT.

    112. I agree with her, what about horses of color! It would be nice to have a DRAW feature, then we could fill in the blocks, spots with color. Thx

    113. yesh. I agree. we do need more i mean more things
      example:hay,spots for paints/appaloosa, and food stuff ext. everyone should agree so we can get them!!!!!!!

    114. IF SO MANY PEOPLE AGREE THAN WE SHOULD TRY TO CONTACT THE HORSE CHANNEL PEOPLE. THE WAY TO DO IT WOULD BE TO GO UP TO THAT BAR ON TOP OF THE PAGE THAT SAYS ENTERTAINMENT FOURUMS YOUR HORSE PROFILE AND CONTACT US. THEN CLICK THE CONTACT US ICON. THE MORE PEOPLE WHO SEND IN THE FACT THAT THEY WANT MORE ITEMS THE BETTER. WE CAN TELL THEM HOW WE HAVE WAY MORSE POINTS THAN WE NEED AND HOW SPOTED AND DOTTED HORSES SHOULD BE ABLE TO HAVE AVATARS THAT LOOK LIKE THEM , THEN WE CAN TALK ABOUT OUR IDEAS. I THINK THE MORE PEOPLE WHO PROTEST AND SEND IN THE MORE NEW ITEMS WE WILL GET AND THE MORE THE HORSE CHANNEL PEOPLE WILL SEE HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS TO US. SO SPEAK UP NOW. FACE THE FACTS WE NEED MORE ITEMS. ACT NOW. JOIN THE GROUP. FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHTS. CONTACT HORSE CHANNEL. DO IT NOW! if you appreciate the fact i am working to get us more items please vote for chita bella desperado and/or beyonce.

    115. I hope every one has had a chance to contact horse channel. the more people who contact them the better results we may see. i sent a letter but you guys keep up the work of posting comments about this problem of not having enough avatr items. thank you for helping anky halliet. i am helping so please help to.

    116. when i bought a saddle and a halter i couldnt get it to reverse and make it fit my avatar’s heat cuz its facing right and the halter fits left??????what do i do?

    117. sadly you can not fit the halter to your horses head. but the saddle can easily be turned around and fit to your horses back by following these directions.1. click on the saddle so that a box apears around it 2.click on the undivided sqaure on the bottom corner of your saddle surronding box 3. after you hve fixed the size drag it to tour horses back 4. you can change the saddle`s color by going to the color shanding bar and appling the color to your saddle i hope this helped you jupiter, if it did come vote for regal steps to glory (lucy) and/or ashes by now Ashleigh. if you have any other questions please blog them to lucy`s blog and vote for her. lucy is running for april HOTM and i think that if people like YOU help by voteing she can make it GO LUCY!

    118. EMILY, IF YOU HAVENT FOUND YOUR SADDLE BY NOW, GO TO EDIT YOUR AVATAR, SCROLL DOWN UNDER THE BODIES, TAILS, ETC. AND LOOK UNDER ACCESSORIES. IT SHOULD BE THERE.

    119. OK MAYBE NOT UNDER ACCESSORIES, BUT TACK. (I HAVENT BOUGHT A SADDLE SO IM NOT 100% SURE!) BUT LOOK UNDER THE CATEGORY BAR JUST UNDER YOUR AVATAR.

    120. Well I think that you should make it so that the neck goes under the head not over top of it and you should tell everyone how to do it.

    121. Bailey,
      To do that you have to make sure you click the button to put the neck on the screen first. then put then head up there. to put something under another you have to to put the under one up there first thenthe over one. hope this helps!

    122. um you know my prfile i have a picture of a grandma well that grandma is the owner and im doing this about her horse so my cameras dead and my grandma lives in Kentucky and so im getting batteries because she sent me pics like paper pics so once i get the batteries i can post a picture of him but its not the best also because she lives in the boonies it take like 10 miles to go to walmart and her camera does not work very well and shuts off i have to use not the best pictures

    123. someone took my picture and my rpofile because its gone i cant find it and some one was not very nice to take my picture because it was not a horse but this is my grandmas horse who so happens to live in Kentucky and me i live in California so i will try but she sent me in a package some pictures and now i have to take a picture of a picture and write the info all OVER i literally took an hour making that profile and who are you took take MY picture and MMYYY (MY) profile its unfair comment me back if you agree with me or not!!!

    124. omg that is really hard. why are the legs as big as the box???? it doesnt have many options either i was expecting something MUCH differant and simpler!!!!

    125. i recently signed up on your website, i have a thoroughbred filly however when registering my choice for thoroughbred was stallion, mare,gelding …..not a filly so this is what i have a filly

    126. Katie,you click in the right hand bottom corner to down-size stuff,or make them bigger,and to change there direction,make the right hand bottom corner become the left hand bottom corner by dragging it the left.Hope this helps alot!

    127. Is there a button that brings things to the front? I am sooooo tired of adding stuff again because They are in the back of things!

    128. arabians are the most beautiful horse…especially my horse he is the bomb…this is very confusing…how do you edit your horse farm

    129. This is no afence boring and I dont like how you cant make the real horse becase there are a little to chose from…. I think that it is very Hard to do also and i hate where you have the horse where you like it but then have to turn it a differnt way to halter or saddle it then the Origanl way… I think it would be fun if they had more stuff to do not to say anything mean… If i offernded you in anyway horse Channel i am sorry you may contact me….. I am not trying to be offenceive to any one if a m sorry please Tell me and I am soo sorry if i did…..

    130. HI agian i wanted to let you know that this is actuly getting fun right now a am playing on horseisle.com and haveing fun doing this tooo..

    131. alison, if you havent figured it out yet, just look up above these comments above the “tab” where it says my horse avatars, and in the paragraph it says for directions creating and editing “click here”. just click on “click here” and it will show you what to do! once you get the hang of it its really fun! remember dont make your avatars real big or you wont have room to put other things, and it wont fit well on your profile page. and to flip an object, like the angel wings, saddle, etc., all you do is shrink it down until its pretty much ready to disappear, then it will flip! hope you get it!

    132. TAYLOR, ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS SHRINK THE SADDLE, UNTIL IT IS SO SMALL THAT IT LOOKS LIKE IT DISAPPEARS AND IT WILL FLIP. JUST KEEP MOVING YOUR MOUSE, LIKE YOU WANT THE SADDLE TO BE AS TINY AS IT CAN POSSIBLY BE, LIKE A DOT, THEN VIOLA! IT FLIPS!

    133. SJ, IF YOU HAVENT FIGURED IT OUT BY NOW, AND IF YOU YOURSELF WOULD HAVE READ MORE COMMENTS, YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN I ANSWERED THIS COMMENT TWICE ALREADY IN THE PAST…..VIEW MORE COMMENTS AND LOOK A FEW COMMENTS BELOW YOURS AND YOU WILL FIND THE ANSWER.

    134. how do you get the halters on??? they should add different patterns for hrses, like tobiano, overo, and appaloosa patterns.

    135. These are great – but they’d be better if the 150 pt halter could somehow be put on the horse. Also, it needs forelocks! 🙂

    136. i agree i love to play around but the halter costs so much and it wont even go on the horse you guys should fix that. you could also set up a system that allows us to try it on our horse BEFORE buying stuff that our horses can even wear!!!!!!!! if you agree with me post a comment on my page.
      my horses name:
      DOUBLE SUGAR COATED
      thanks!!!!

    137. awesome huh? My little Bart as an avatar! I hope he loves it! do you? Bart looks really cool in his avatar look. but he has one white sock not 2. oh well I still love it!

    138. PLEASE READ THIS

      a avatar can really help you get votes if you have a good one… and that is true but if you don`t know how then how can you use this to your advantage if you can`t make one and a good one HOW CAN YOU USE THAT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE. lean more at my page, make a avatar go from BOARING to SOARING. to get there go to my horse profiles at the top of the page, (next to the entertainment, fourums search, and contact us)then type (in the horse name search box) make a avatar go from BOARING to SOARING. there will be a picture of a palimino horse walking along a beach. click on that and come visit. you will find lots of tricks and tips that will turn a boaring avatar into a peice of artwork. leave a comment to tell me what you thought about my page and i`ll do my best to get back to you. THANK YOU for taking the time to read this and visit my page. i really do appreciate it!

    139. Hey Lucy,
      You don’t need to find the same colour body parts as your horse, you pick the ones that look like your horses build then use the “Show/Hide Color Palette” in the right hand bottum corner and then you find your horses colour.
      Visit me,
      Jesse & Rea, Honey and Cody

    140. Use the three color slides on the bottom left corner and slide them to a gray color. Or click on the link under the three slides and it will give you a color panel, then choose gray. That’s how to make a gray horse.

    141. This is very fun and interseting. But Not all horses are plain colors. So you should have spots or dots of other colors or something. But overall it is fun and 5 stars!

    142. I love how you can change the back ground from pasture, show arena and stable just click on the show/hide backgrounds link right beside the print button

    143. This is a really cool website. You can win prizes with pointes!!! And how do U put a halter on your horse? How do U cheak out peoples pages and avatars??

    144. I haven’t figured out how to put a halter on yet either. As for the eyes, it takes a bit of messing around. Some times you don’t grab them where the cross is to move them. just poke around the picture of the eyes and you will find a place that you can grab them to move them.

    145. I WISH THERE WERE MORE SEASONAL ITEMS IN THE SHOP. LIKE FALL LEAVES, FODDER (BUNDLE OF CORNSTALKS FOR OCT & NOV), SNOWFLAKES, SNOWMAN, AND EVEN A CLOUD LIKE ON DOGCHANNEL, TO PUT CLOUDS AROUND THE ANGELS. PLEASE ADD MORE SEASONAL STUFF!!

    146. ALSO, WE NEED A BALE OF HAY, A BUCKET, MAYBE A BRUSH. WHAT ABOUT A SUN? OR EVEN A POLE BENDING POLE? THERE ARE MORE ITEMS ON DC. WHY NOT HAVE MORE ON HC? MAYBE DO A SURVEY OR VOTE, ON WHAT ITEMS PEOPLE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE ADDED TO THE AVATAR SHOP! PLEASE ADD MORE STUFF!!!

    147. i tottaly agree with trail rider but people have been sending requestes like these for the past year but they never follow through. i think we should get together a campaign and have all users countinuesly add repetitive comments about adding move avatar things, the more people the the better! anyone who wants to help just post comments on people horse `s pages and leave comments on articles about it. this might turn out fun and effective!

    148. you can make some stuff yourself by using the shapes and stretching or shortening them, putting several pieces together, etc. it’s not so simple but once you get the hang of it it’s kinda fun. for example, take the straightest tail, make it long and skinny and use it for a bridle cheek piece or rein. you can adapt the mane or tail pieces to look like grass. read the directions and you’ll see how to make solid leg colors. my first avatar looked like a crazy robot horse. then, i read the directions. there’s a free rainbow and cloud with sun rays that you can buy at the avatar shop under accessories, i think. you can move it and expand it and make it look like only clouds or flip it use the rays like the sun. check out page #11626. all her avatar are works of art. be inspired.

    149. I can’t seem to access any of this cool stuff, I read the directions.. Can someone PlEaSe tell me what I’m doing wrong? Thank you soooo much:-)

    150. hello horse lovers i think it would be so cool if all the horse lovers could meet somewhere and go for a trail ride that would be so toatally awesome!!!!!!!

    151. FOR THOSE OF YOU HAVING TROUBLE WITH COLORS, JUST SO YOU KNOW, IF YOU CLICK ON THE WORDS “SHOW/HIDE COLOR PALETTE” IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT HAND CORNER ON THE PAGE TO EDIT YOUR AVATAR…..YOU WILL HAVE LOTS OF DIFFERENT COLORS TO CHOOSE FROM. CHOOSE THE CLOSEST COLOR YOU ARE WANTING, THEN VERY SLOWLY/GENTLY MOVE ONE OF THE RED, GREEN, OR BLUE SLIDING BARS TO SLIGHTLY CHANGE THE COLOR UNTIL YOU GET AS CLOSE AS YOU CAN TO WHAT YOU WANT. HOPE THIS HELPS.

    152. you delete stuff by clicking the red X on the top left corner of the thing you want to delete. for fliping the saddle, you know how you can make soming the bigger or smaller? you make it small by pulling it all the way to the left, then you keep going, and it’ll flip. i wish they made it easier to do paints!!!

    153. mya, if you havent figured it out yet, shrink the saddle down as small as you possibly can until its pretty much disappeared and it should flip then. just dont let up on the mouse and keep it moving.
      also, “me” i dont think you can actually put the halter on. if you can i havent figured it out yet.

    154. I’m having issues too. I cant figure out how to retreat stuff from the ‘avatar shop’ and put in by my horse! Help, someone, please! lol

    155. Kimberly you click on the thing you want to “buy” then click ‘ok’ on the little pop-up menu. and to put it on or by your horse just click ‘edit avatar’ on the horse you want to put it on and instead of selecting ‘heads’ or ‘bodies’ or something, you select ‘winter’ or ‘spring’ or ‘tack’ or whatever category the thing you just bought is in. then you just put it on your horse and click save. hope that helps. 🙂 and here’s some advice: don’t buy the halter (if you haven’t already)

    156. How do you create the horse…..the choices are limited and I see other Avatar creations that don’t match anything in the options availabe on mine.

    157. well for one its nice to have friends you can ask to join but where we live this town is not big on horses so if we talk about horses we have to go to a horse show or something so i do think it is great sincerely virginia

    158. I got an email saying I was Quiz Master 2 but my profile only shows Quiz Master 5. What’s up with that? How do I change it? I love doing quizzes.

    159. before i was talking about my horse also its kind of hard to put together plus like i said before theres no paint body

    160. Sure, there isn’t a paint body, but it’s pretty kewl! i like it! but, there should be more stuff in the avatar shop

    161. Check out Aces Oreo Cookie i made a paint. I just used face markings, by enlarging or turning to fit in the areas i needed. Try it, it works.

    162. I like it i think what would make it better would be to put more opions of colors. My horses color is Buckskin, and it wasn’t on there. Just to let u know!

    163. Fun activity. But, I think it would be more fun with a “send to back” button for things you want to be in the background. Also, a drawing button would be good for drawing things that might not be in the avatar shop.

    164. I bought the bucket of apples, but now I can’t find them saved anywhere! How do I retrieve them to put next to my horse’s avatar?

    165. Only buy things that cost 0 points so that you don’t lose any points that you could use to buy a subscription to Horse Illustrated!

    166. I love everything about this site my friend told me all about it and i hope to make some friends and get advice i cant wait to talk to all of u out there:)

    167. this is so much fun!! a little confusing at first. plus i’d like to know how to get a stall or trail backgroung instead of a pasture one like i’ve seen some people’s,but i don’t know how to!!
      P.S.how do you get more points??

    168. i love this website!!!! its so much fun plus when my trainer makes me do a report on someting to do with horses i know right where to go.

    169. you can get points by playing games taking quizzes and other stuff make sure you check in regularly because they give you 25 points every time and if you don’t your points are erased

    170. It took awhile to learn how to do it, but now it’s cool. TIP: to make spots, use eyes and make them small, then put them all over the body. That’s how I put spots on my Appaloosa avatar.

    171. I think that once you have your horse made they should make it where you can move it in one peice instead of moving one part at a time and they should also make it so you can make new backgrounds on the page and chose if you want it in the background or in front of the avatar.

    172. I have installed adobe player and I still can’t get the item I redeemed points for. I don’t understand this thing. It isn’t working for me

    173. I think that the e-shop should have ALOT more things in it. I mean, take a look at the Bird Channel avatar e-shop. It’s FILLED with all kinds of stuff.

    174. I hard a hard time making the gray color for my horse star. please get pre-selected colors and then be able to edit from there.

    175. I bought a heart from the avatar shop for 0 points, but it never showed up. I’ve bought other stuff and got it, but I can’t find the heart??

    176. I really enjoy decorating my avatar page with the different holidays and seasons. It would be cool if we could get christmas lights to decorate with.

    177. I love decorating and buying stuff from the avatar shop, but when i put the saddle on dixie it looks weird. I noticed I DIDN’T HAVE A SADDLE PAD!!! WHERE ARE THYE SADDLE PADS??????

    178. I found it difficult to build my horse’s avatar, doesnt seem user friendly. My horse will not have an avatar until I have jmore time and more patience to deal with building his avatar.

    179. I LOVe it Even My boyfriend llove’s he made Jasp Man’s but I am updating it it is so fun I do it all the time that I have left over!!!!!

    180. I found it quite hard to make my horses avatar. He looks weird and unperportional. i mean really, how do you do this and make the horse look normal?

    181. this was majorly disappointing. the body parts are all disproportionate to one another, the manes don’t even properly fit onto the neck without covering the head, and you can’t even pick different leg markings… I feel like this was a big waste of time.. its pretty sloppy. c’mon, Horsechannel, you can do better!!!

    182. It took me a very long time to create the horse, and it was not at all worth my time. The pieces do not fit together at all, and there are not nearly enough options.

    183. This was really fun for my daughter to create our horse it did take her alot of time but that was half the fun it kept her busy and engaged. She proudly shows the picture of Kable she made by herself!

    184. I wasted some points on tack like the english saddle and the halter that don’t even look right or face the right way on my horse!!

    185. My horse never fit on the page, but if I make her smaller she looks like a pony. So if you visit Scarlet’s page if she is cut off its not my fault!

    186. i hate how i cant get anything now that i bought lots of stuff at th avatar shop!!!and how do i get different baqckgrounds?

    187. the avitar’s need to be done a lot better. It’s hard to try and make your horse look like it.. Mine look’s funny looking..

    188. I agree with all of you the avatars need to be costomized and better. They should let us choose every part of it. I dont like the idea of avatars.

    189. you should be able to add text. that would be fun, says the person sitting next to me… by the way, it was her idea to get the rainbow on Thunder’s page. xD

    190. I have an Apple mac computer that doesn’t let me play most of the games on here because you can’t download “flash player” it tells you that you that its “missing plug in” so you rant allowed to play any games. The thing is I don’t want to download any of that because i don’t want any viresesor “bugs” on my new mac. it really stinks i wish they would change it so people with mac’s and mac book pros can earn more points. 🙁

    191. This avatar maker would be a lot better if they put more mane and tail styles, added more colors for the bodies,necks,and heads , and if they put where you can choose the background too!

    192. I’m sorry but making my avatar was very difficult. It should be easier to make. Some improvements need to be made so it’s more user friendly.

    193. The shapes of the horse are really wierd! And also the colors should have like paint or different types of stuff…It was kind of hard.

    194. Is there anyway you can have more preset colors? And have the same exact colors for each type of leg, neck, head, etc.? This took WAYY to long! Its sort of frustrating…

    195. HC really stinks! I cannot get into my view site to read blogs. What gives with you? Also 345,000 redeemed points with no results has really gotten bad with no assistance from you. Are you out of business, reconstructed through another com and HC just gets worse. Get your act together or there will be no one left to put up with you as a private channel.

    196. hey, I own a 15 4 hh gelding that is more
      fun to ride than a virtual horse. for all of
      you that are scared,try to expect the best of
      your horse when around him, and he’ll expect
      the best of you. your friend, Davie123

    197. I LOVE THIS SITE:):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:):):):):)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    198. Can ANYONE tell me how I can contact one of the Membetrs? This young person has the horse Preppy Nathan, and is from Poplar grove, Illinois. The horse is now 21 years old, but I owned him when he was 3 until he became a therapy horse. Can ANYONE help me???!!

    200. Making the avatars should be easier. Instead of piecing them together, you should just have to put the markings on, not build them.

    201. It’s so complicated! I wish tht they would give u sevral horses 2 pick frome, than u could go from there w/ the color and stuff.

    202. start by creating a horses page then go to my horse avatar, then click your horses name, then on the lower part of the picture pick a body neck legs and etc. hope this helps!

    203. My avatars are correct in posture, but lacks elsewhere. I love to see ppls that are spot on with their horses…wish I could do that!

    204. I’m new here, and I can’t seem to figure out how to work this,it keeps telling me I don’t have Adobe flash player, but I’m purely sure I do, angry suggestions? Thanks 🙂

    205. The picture of my horse is shown upside down. I have tried everything to get the image upright. What do I need to do to correct it?
