I've had similar glitches with the racing poles so you're not alone.

Just re-read the posting instructions from the link above very carefully. Here
Quote
1. After uploading your image to the Gallery, click it to see the full size.
2. Right-click the image and copy the path (Copy image location, destination, URL, etc.)  This URL is the path to your image.
3. There have been reports that this option doesn't show up sometimes.  In this case, it might be a browser issue.  If you have another browser you can try, it might work.  Otherwise, a workaround is to right click, select Properties, then copy the URL from that window.
4. Back on the Forum and in your post, put the cursor at the spot you want the image to be and click the Insert Image button (located below the italicize button).  This automatically drops the image tags into your post and places your cursor in the exact spot to copy your image URL. 
5. Right-click and Paste or use Ctrl-V to paste the URL of your image.
6. The image is fed to your post from the server.
7. Inserting multiple images is easy, just copy the code for image 1 and replace the file names.

Note:  It is recommended that you upload images directly from your Sims 3 file Screenshots folder.  The path is:  C:Documents/Electronic Arts/Sims 3/Screenshots.  Depending on which version of Windows you use, it may be My Documents.  For Mac users, the path is basically the same.

If you right click the image, as it states, you'll get a URL path to the image.  If you don't see it, try click on Properties and you should see the Address (URL) in the list.  You need to copy the entire address.  Just read all the instructions carefully.

Back to topic. I haven't built a ranch from scratch yet. Usually I take a big lot, and place a pre-made starter home and then modify it. On the troubled teens ranch, I deleted one of the pre-made households, added a bigger lot and then placed the Double-Day Lodge. I bought a lot way up in the celebrity hills of Bridgeport, deleted a few surrounding houses, so it's basically all a big wild land out there. My house has a nice view of the bridge and the city from the top of the hill, and I put more effort into the yard, so the sims often get the Beautifully Decorated moodlet while they're outside working horses.
 I haven't played very "realistically" since I don't build a locked fence all the way around. I like them to Gallop Around the neighborhood. And the houses that are nearby all have locked gates, so they don't wander into the neighbors yard.

In IE9 I couldn't right click and 'Copy Shortcut' to get an Image's URL, I can in Chrome and Firefox though.

Did you see the photo tutorial below it? That might help you see how and where things are done?

Arghhh!!! I was trying to take pics of my horses to show you guys but my game corrupted and I have to start over.  Oh well. I still had my family saved, so I just needed to redo the ranch and replay about a whole sim week. -_-'

Does anyone know if the OP ever shared her ranch here?  I've searched for it but can't find it and would love to take a look at her design more closely.

Well I just made my account on here just because of this forum, just wanted to see if people were still posting. I read 1-13 (its taken me about 2 hours), but somewhere I saw we some how lost Mary which kinda sucks because I made this account mostly to talk to her (I thought it was cool we were both from washington). BUT as long as there are still some people working on this I'd gladly make a new ranch (even tho I already have one) and document my progress. Since its already 2:50 in the morning I shall start making my ranch tomorrow, as well as my blog.

My ranch will be named Wishing Starr (this is the name I've always wanted to use if I'm ever lucky enough to own my own ranch.) I haven't fully decided yet if I want to breed Arabians or Mustangs yet. I've had the most experiance with Arabs in real life, but since two other people have made ranches using Arabs I feel like I should use a new breed. Thus where Mustangs come in because I've always thought of them as beautiful horses. So I'll update tomorrow with photos of my ranch, horses, ect, and link to my blog :)

I still have my Darcy ranch but Christmas coming up and some building commissions have kept me very busy. :)  But I like seeing what others are doing.  I'm not sure what happened to Mary. :(

Yeah he is one of my real horese. I thought about making my ranch all my real horses, but I didn't think the colors went very well together. I'll post the first baby I had, but after that I'll put them all on my blog. I'm not sure if I like the colors I'm getting so I might switch my mares up after awhile.



Dad, Mom, Baby



Young



Grown up :)

Wow, great ranch.  I love your real horse.  He is so handsome! You did a very good job recreating him!

I cannot wait until you post your link to your blog and when you do, I will see it straight away!

Awww thank you very much, I don't know when I'll be posting my blog because I have to have a lot of stuff on it before anyone sees it. I'm trying to put alot of effort into it, I'll have pictures of all my foals, week by week updates, ect. Each of my breeding horses will have their own page with pictures, traits, plus I'm writing down the days that big event happen (like when they reach level 10 jumping or racing). Since this is the first time I've done this I'm going to try to go all out. But this is VERY new for me because I'm one of those simmers who makes a new family like every 3 times I play XP

After thoudands of crashs(I have no clue if this is written like this) ... at least it feels like that much, I decided to buy the training ground and rebuild it. Like this I have more space for smaller farms with entirely different horses.
Does anyone have problams with the latest updates because I can't oper my launcher anymore.
