Seems to me that different users of HF have very different experiences depending on how their introduction and first month goes.
There are so many helpful knowledgeable people on here that always seem happy to help with any sort of question, making this forum a wonderful resource for any horse owner/lover.
I find it very interesting to see that most 'new users' instantly love the site and become morbidly addicted (myself included). Others however don't always have the same result, usually due to some misrepresentation of facts. Of course the drawback to having so many knowledgeable and informed people on here is that inconsistencies in stories become apparent very quickly.
Just a shout out to everyone, if you are going to post your story/question/thought, be honest as it really encourages more of a welcoming spirit and positive responses from everyone. I think the more happy users we have on this site, the better it is!
P.S. There have been numerous threads of this nature that I have noticed in the last couple of weeks, some of which caused the OP to not use this forum anymore. Just to clarify that this thread is not directed at anyone in particular.
