Whenever I try to join other forums for other things I am able to so much more deeply appreciate the Horse Forum.
Between the large, diverse member base; active, friendly moderators; and general respect and consideration of other members, I've yet to come across any other forum that provided nearly as much information, advice, or entertainment to me.
I just wish every forum out there were like this one- it would make it so much easier to get the help I need for other parts of my life!
I just wanted to send out these good vibes because I miss the forum quite a bit. Since becoming horseless I've been here less and less because I've been less and less able to stand to think too much about horsey things, TBH. It's all too depressing for me when such a huge part of who I am is missing, it's difficult to think about it too deeply.
Even though I've never been a big part of the forum I still feel very close to the community here and have spent so many hours here that I consider it a part of my life. I don't know when I will be lucky enough for the next horse to gallop into my life, and as much as I hate to say so, it very well could be years before I can afford that. I likely won't be around much until then, so I just wanted to thank you all for such a pleasant experience here and send my best wishes to everyone on the Forum during this holiday season.
