I think people’s use of the forum will change from time to time. I post a lot less now than a few years ago, and I would not have described myself as a prolific poster even then. My circumstances have changed over the years. I no longer ride; I no longer have a horse, with all that entails with feed, rugs,etc; my ponies live out, unrugged, all year round, so no stabling or bedding; I only drive occasionally for short distances, so no clipping, presentation or clipping etc. So not a lot to start threads with! I live a very quiet life in Shetland, so not a lot to contribute socially either. I am not a “chatty” person. Oh grief, I sound so boring!
BUT, I do like to read what other people are doing, and join in if I feel I have something to contribute. I have found NR to be a comfortable place, generally. So new joiners may need some time to read and settle before joining in. Well, that’s my two penn’orth!
