Congrats Alison!! It's very fitting that the winner and runner up pics on a wind photo contest on a cattle forum are of grassland.

No emojis so one wouldn't know if you are serious or not. Just to put the record straight...I am allowed one vote just like everyone else. It is impossible for me to rig a contest and even if I could, winning a photo contest is not that important to me. Would sooner see everyone enjoying the contests and participating than have it marred by a suggestion of 'possible rigging'. Voters vote for their favourite pic, pic with the most votes wins...simple. Anyone who feels strongly about this matter is welcome to take it up with me and I will withdraw from all contests...I certainly won't have a problem with that.

Alison, The like button is broken :) As a matter of principle I don't vote for my own pic either usually

Lots of good pics on this contest :)

I also interpreted Aaron's post as just a lighthearted comment.

Yes, I want my emoticons back! Sarcasm just isn't the same without them.

FYI my vote was for Alison's picture, but what fun is it to say 'Congrats', when the opportunity to stir the pot is available. :D

It is a passing thought from time to time. Then I forget and a new day begins. I think they call it Alzheimers.
