Concerns about community and this site
I hope this isn't misunderstood, but I have concerns for this site if some things continue. This site was established because of our love for Zenyatta, and the need to continue to have her in our lives. It also brought fans into all parts of the racing industry, racing, breeding, retirement, and retraining, and eventually all horse issues. These are things that Zenyatta, her extended family, and Lane's End hold close to their hearts, and why we love them. They spend much of their time and money to keep this site going, answer our questions, and continue to do good work. This is a very loving site, and I love the people on it, but I'm afraid some things have gotten out of hand. I, many times, have come to the site to find out information that I use to readily find; concerning Zenyatta, uplifting stories concerning horses, or situations that we could get involved in by only lending our voice, to help unfortunate suffering horses. Now, many times I give up, because there is so much personal chatter amongst a few, it is like it has become their own personal site. I love that these people have so much compassion for each other, but maybe they can start a discussion group for their personal conversation, because all the wonderful horse information is getting lost. There are also other parts of facebook, twitter and the like for this conversation. I, and I think others, want to keep this site for what it was intended, and to be able to ask questions of the experts, find out information concerning all aspects of horses, keep Zenyatta and her family in our lives, and become informed about ways we can help these beautiful animals, just by lending our voice. I don't want to become so discouraged because, unless there are new videos or pictures, I can't find any of the information or stories there use to be. The bottom line, I'm afraid the site will be closed down, because why should the people involved continue putting their time and money into a personal website, with all the reasons they started it being lost one by one! Please understand where I'm coming from, I love the compassion of you all, but I want the website back like it use to be, and am afraid to death that if this continues like this, that we all will lose it!!!
