I am sorry to hear that your horse is having problems. Are you able to attach a picture using the paperclip at the top of the dialog box? Sometimes we can tell more about an issue if we can see what is going on.

At the top of the dialog box, there is a set of icons. The one on the far right is a paper clip. Use this to attach a picture by choosing a file and pressing OK after you have clicked on the paperclip and opened up the attachment window.
