    ...a thread that got amazingly long a few years ago.
    It was started by a real life cowboy (or a poster posing as such but what he wrote felt very genuine) about a new horse he got in his herd. He was trying rough methods to get past some issues with said horse and he received great advice from numerous members, followed the advice with great success and then this thread kind of wandered..
    He started sharing stories from his trails (he was living very remote, in the mountains...Montana, maybe?).
    I think last I checked the thread had hundreds of pages. It was from..2010, 2011, maybe? During my lurker time.
    I think @prairiesongks posted, maybe @manesntails, @dumbjockey ?
    Lots of names who sadly haven´t been on for quite a while...
    Does anyone know the thread I am talking about?

    That's the only one I can think of that fits the bill @CabterCrazy.

    I read this thread some time ago and it was entertaining. The OP is a good story teller and I enjoyed reading it. They actually are a tour guide (?) up north. Don't know what ever came of it, but it sort of ran it's course and got closed as it was going way off topic I guess.

    I got the impression it was a writer throwing out excerpts to see how horse people would take it. Believable as written or not.

    People don't join, then disappear like that, writing in prose, for no reason. But I'z an ana“lie“zer of actions by nature.

    Point and it was the reason I tracked down the background. It did check out. I think they just got busy and it was a strain trying to do their job, take care of their own situation and property as well as their wife. It became hard for them to post midway and I'm surprised they did, as they really didn't have the time.
