Apologies for this blog inactivity
The truth is that I was waiting for any fresh contributions/topics from other readers, other than the usual few or myself. When they didn't arrive I should have started a new subject myself. In the meantime I see that Ashbrook Stud website has started up its blog again, which is great. It certainly is very good at publishing fresh and interesting news about Connemara Ponies. I find it a very well run, positive and constructive site that also allows a certain degree of fair comment and debate.
My blog here is different in that it concentrates on chat and debate at a much wider and open level. Some contributors may feel easier about being able to air their views anonymously. While others may be annoyed by this, I do try to make sure comments are fair and justified and I take role of devils advocate occasionally where necessary. I do not publish information/ supposed facts without checking things out and will not publish personal attacks or intolerant remarks about a contrasting viewpoint. After all debate, conducted properly, is a good thing.
Thanks for reading this, and I hope to be posting more chat topics soon. I actually have a few surveys in the pipeline!
