    We have a SusanC. I think there might be another one or two, as well.

    I like the name Autumn. Very pretty. I have a niece named Somer (pronounced Summer).

    Wait, now Im remembering I think, don't we have a SusanCrumrine (something similar to that, at least) aswell? Or is that who your talking about?

    Ayy, thanks! A family member has a dog named Summer, and a cousin's middle name is Spring, now all we need is a Winter and our family will be made!

    I like that there's so many opinions in one spot. And some people who really know what they're talking about, who are willing to share. I need those people :)

    I love the "family" aspect of the forum. You get to know people, they make you laugh, and it's a great stress reliever to log on and read some of the witty responses people come up with.

    I also love seeing riders improve. I can think of many members who have posted critique threads for over a year, and the improvements and differences are amazing. I often read critique threads just to see what some of the more accomplished riders have posted, as it's usually advice that I can apply to my own riding.

    I agree with Gallop On, I had been on one other forum where there was brutal attacks on each others childrens riding abilities. Really???
    I like that you can debate or not agree with one person on one thread, but maybe on a different one you do agree and usually there is no animosity carried over. Especially since we all know how opinionated horse people are! Lol And I like to debate.....ask my husband....

    It is easy to get stuck in a rut when you travel in the same circle of riders or discipline. There are so many levels and different disciplines on here its fun to see the different point of veiws on a subject or issue. It reminds me that not everyone thinks the way I do. (What is wrong with you people, if everyone thought like me, this world would be so much better! LOL) I have learned some interesting and helpful things here and I hope that someone has learned something from me. Some things I figured out fast that I don't know a d@mn thing about so is best not to comment or pretend I do. Other things I figured I know a little about.

    I ABSOLUTELY ADORE HF! Why did I just found out about it last fall!?! I could have really used it so many times, the good and the bad. Such a brilliant community, and funny as heck too Tiny, I agree! The chance to converse with you guys is priceless.

    I use the forum because I can talk and read horse. Not something I can do around my friends and family. The conversations are so widely varied on topics, horse related and not. Getting to read about another horse person's life and their views on things is nice, especially when most of my conversations are with my 7 year old, my hub, and a few texts from distant friends. I get lonely out here!

    As far as "hiding" behind a username... I'm slightly well known by my name, especially around here and in my industry. I don't want anyone to know that my first love is horses, not what I do for a living, which supports my love!
    I also don't want my name coming up in searches from here instead of turning up when a potential client seeks me out.

    I have only regretted one post. I typed BUTE instead of ACE once, totally by accident. I got called out on it and OF COURSE I'm not an idiot, I just typed in the wrong thing. I understand it's important to get things right, especially when talking about meds! I was typing my correction when I got reprimanded. Grrrr .

    I do get miffed when people jump down other's throats. Especially if they are new or under educated. It's really sad. I do think things should be said tactfully and I love it when a person steps in and smooths things over (or at least attempts to). I respect those people so much more.
    Of course there are times when you just want to shake someone smart. Not going to happen but sometimes it's worth a try, if done as nicely as possible.
    You know the saying about honey and vinegar...
    Glad it doesn't happen that often!

    Huge hugs to everyone on here, especially the admins and the founders.
    Excellent job guys! Love you all to death!

    I love helping others will the limited knowledge and learning new things. I like sharing updates with Sky and everyone is very friendly and fun to talk to.

    This is going to sound pathetic but it's the highlight of my day currently. Seeing as I don't have my horse, stuck in the house, and made to study all the time you can see why I enjoy my forum time.

    It's just a really fun learning environment while I'm waiting for the OK to start on lessons again :)

    Yes people get heated about things, especially when they have done all the research and the other person has all the experience.. sometimes they don't mesh lol.

    I treat everyone with respect and try to be as helpful as possible. Sometimes I can be a little.. grr, but I'm human afterall ;P

    I have to say Sky, you are very Sweet!!!
    You are one of my favourite things about the forum.

    Your Favourite Stalker ;)

    I love talking with people with the same interests. I'm normally off the serious bit of the forum, because I need to be shown how to do stuff I guess (bit thick). And unfortunately not a huge amount to offer.

    And yes mainly the humour.
