Very common......they have a good cow....then they go and try to make her perfect. Very few photos are not touched up in some way.

Most professional pictures are taken "on halter", and the halter is taken off thru computer.

I think a lot are taken on halter, I don’t think this one was she isn’t halter broke. Alabama I always look old and over weight in my DL photo. Maybe it’s becaude I am old and over weight but dang not near as old and fat as that photo!

I agree, I have fits trying to get decent pictures. That's why I'm always so impressed when I see a great picture. B&G

I find some animals just naturally pose and others you just can't get a good shot.

ALACOWMAN, I'm always weary of pictures of animals in 10" of straw, can make any leggy animal look deep and long when you cut off half their legs.. Gizmom's photo shows the entire animal and she still looks great.


Nesi I don't like pics or videos in deep straw. It makes me wonder what they are trying to hide. I like to see pics in a bare lot of just 1-2" of straw of wood chips.

We have a coyote call that has a remote for it. We set it up quite a distance away. When the animal is in the right position, we turn it on & that helps get them in that "perky" look. We hate taking pictures also. Only do this when we HAVE to have sale pictures. Generally, can get best picture when you are just wondering around looking at them and don't NEED a good picture.

Now that's thinking outside the box. I now have a new use for my coyote call!

I have always wanted to somehow MOVE something up on the hill. Like have a plastic bag tied to a rope & pull it along the ground. Cattle would really perk up!! But, this coyote call works great, you can make chicken sounds, rabits, etc.
Warning, don't turn on for long periods of time, they just ignore it after few seconds.

I used a black and white umbrella to open and close out front of them this year. Worked good for 1st two but the ones still to go through could see what was happening and it was like ho hum after that, how boring.
