Thoroughbred Thursday: Empty Pasture

Pony - 27 November 2008Image by Marion Doss via Flickr

Sometimes I wish I had a foot fetish (I'm more a shoe person) or a spanking fetish (I do enjoy a good spanking, but not enough to call it a fetish) or some other "popular" fetish.  Foot porn and spanking videos are pretty easy to come by.  There's a huge, active forum for latex enthusiasts.  And if you're into animal roleplay of the furry variety, you're certainly not alone.
I know this because I have been searching for a similar community devoted to pony play or animal roleplay/human animal play/pet play, in general.  Google, of course, does not make the important distinction between human animals and furries.  So I've found lots of furry communities.  And none of what I was looking for.  At least, nothing active.

I don't know what happened.  Maybe it's just a coincidence.  But every pony and/or pet play forum I found seemed to have died months or even years ago.  Did I miss something?  Even the forum associated with the pony play authority, Equus Eroticus, had no recent posts.  And when I finally gave up on forums and resigned myself to Yahoo groups, the rather long list I found turned out to contain precisely one single group that had been recently active.  I joined, of course, and soon that the group wasn't half as active as I'd hoped.

Needless to say, this quest was quite disappointing.  I was sure that when I started looking, I would find the community I sought.  Because there should be such a community.  There needs to be.  Information about pony play - beyond the very basics and where to find your tack - isn't easy to come by.  Equus Eroticus does post some great, informative articles, but you can't ask an article a question.  Reading articles isn't the same as discussing and sharing ideas and information with a group of like-minded individuals.

Something very important seems to be missing here, and I'm wondering what to do about it.  Should I keep digging?  Is the community I seek just buried deeper than I've dug so far?  Maybe someone out there can point me in the right direction...  Or maybe this is a case of  "if you build it, they will come."  Perhaps, if I want this sort of community, I need to create it.

I don't know.  At this point, I'm feeling a bit lost in this wide, empty pasture.  Is there anybody out there?  Hellooooooo?
