Hello Dr. Deb!
Every now and then I'll have something come up that happens or even just something I think about that might make for an interesting discussion here. But I don't necessarily have a question, so I don't bring it up. But it could lead to questions and a sharing of thoughts and experiences. Also learning and clarification. So I'm wondering if I should go ahead and start a thread in this manner or would you prefer I didn't since I don't have a direct question?
Thanks!
Monica

Of course that's OK, Aloha. You shouldn't take everything I say here quite that literally. Sometimes when we get a "hostile" -- someone who appears to have come here primarily in order to criticize, carp, name names, flame, try to sell something, or try to make themselves look good at someone else's expense -- then I have to tell them "you need to ask a question." This is to get them to realize that in order to participate here, they have to be in a learning frame of mind -- so that, instead of TELLING us what (they think they) know, they should be ASKING how to solve this or that problem with their horse.

The "question" in your offer is implicit, but amounts to the same thing -- the question that you're offering to ask is, "hey, has anybody else had this experience?" That's the right attitude. Cheers -- Dr. Deb
