Where else can I post a pic of a wooly worm summer caterpillar I found in my pasture in March (?!) and have other people be excited about it?
Seriously, I agree with what most of the others have said about the bond of talking with other horse people, but also I love to learn (I want to be a professional student when I grow up) and this is a place I can learn.
Even when I'm not searching for anything specific I can learn:
How people do things in other parts of the country
How people do things in other countries
How TO do things
How NOT to do things
How lucky I am to be somewhat sane
How lucky my animals are that I am somewhat sane
How to p*ss of someone without even trying
How pics of someone else's horse can brighten your day
How a story can touch your heart
And mostly, how much a of a bad speller I am when I type fast.
I love that I can come here and in the span of one vist I can learn, teach, share, see, show, encourage and be encouraged.
