Whatever happened to...

Reading old threads do you guys/girls ever wonder what happened to posters like @Spastic_Dove @Gallop On @riccil0ve @Poseidon @Kayty @mom2pride @Wallaby etc.? Posters with thousands of posts over many years that just suddenly stopped posting and have had no activity in several years now.

I belong to other online forums, mostly for hunting and fishing and this rarely happens on those forums. People go through periods of greater or lesser activity but they still visit the forums and read posts even when not actively posting.

Here it is like post, post, post, post, post, BAM!...radio silence.

I've even gone and read the last posts and threads where some of these folks were active to see if it was something in a post or thread that made them jump ship but usually there is nothing there other than regular posting activity right up until their area of the world seems to have permanently lost internet.

Have any of you guys ever wondered what became of these folks?

Anything worth doing, is worth doing well.

I was looking through old threads the other day looking for something. Didn't find it but did notice exactly that. Posters that where missing.

I still think of @Smilie when I come here. She was a great loss to the forum.

I do too.

Some horse people change their horse, they change their tack and discipline, they change their instructor; they never change themselves.

I don't have answers but can say...
If you know of members who disappeared ask them to come back.
There are many who disappeared...hopefully if it was a logging-in issue it has been rectified.
I would love to see some of the older members return...the insight and knowledge they had and shared was fantastic...


And yes, I too miss Smilie and her valuable input on so many subjects.
...

The worst day is instantly better when shared with my horse.....

A couple of them were just too busy with their jobs combined with horses to find the time to post here any more.
We often wouldnt know if someone had died, it was only by chance that we knew about Smilie and Saddlebag.

Just winging it is not a plan
