people successful in the horse business do not have the time to mess on forums. When I see one on here a lot I know they are not doing there job.
Well, I spend a fair amount of time in here and consider myself to be reasonably successful in the equine business.
My answer as to why, I gave up my job to return home to look after my mother, she died and I had retired and was drawing my pension. I enjoy it, I actually have time for ME, seems better than working 24/7
I am nearer 70 than 60 having worked with horses from the age of 15, never been unemployed rarely taking holidays, I think I have earned it.
The time I spent with a variety of horses gives me the experience of many equine problems and if I can help people then I will spend what ever time I like on line at Horse Forum.
As you age if you have worked outdoors with any animals your body does wear out and comes a time when you know you need to slow down and be more cautious. Given the chance if I did not have two collapsed discs in my mid back, I would be still working.
