Obviously with a web site this size, more than one person is involved and has provided help to the creation and maintenance of this gallery.
A big debt of gratitude owed is to Janet Piercy who began this web site from her personal account in 1996. She worked countless hours, "singlehandedly," doing most of the research, all of the scanning and web page creation and maintenance.
Another debt is owed to AstroArch Consulting, Inc. the organization that hosted the web site for many years as it expanded and flourished into one of the top five percent of web sites on the entire web.
Then the gallery was hosted by CGI101.COM for a couple of years (as gallery-dot-modehorseweb-dot-com), so a big thank you to them.
The current curator is Gail J Berg, who took over the gallery in June 2001 after it had languished without updates for almost two years. In December 2002, the site moved to the modelhorsegallery.info domain on a new, independent host.
Most of the graphics (back grounds, fonts, symbols) come from a number of free sites including:
And many others (links lost over time or never recorded)
The following links were noted in an email by Janet in the summer of 1998 and may be the source for some of these items:
