When younger, I would use the Beyer Horse Catalog to plan breeding charts and pedigrees for my model horses.  Still own 90% of the Farley and O'Henry horse books, though they now reside in my children's rooms.

I am an adult player and do enjoy communicating with people, but don't enjoy drama.  I've been on Howrse over a year now, and still am learning how to be a better player each day.
