If a horse is dangerous, dog it, there are too many good ones out there. Pretty is as pretty does.
And with ponies, the 'good' ones are never for sale - they are passed from family to family!!
Exactly. A dangerous horse costs just as much, if not more, to keep than a good horse. Plus the horse has no concept of future, it doesn't think of it's wasted potential. One second its there, the next its gone. Horse is none the wiser, and owner can find something more suitable. No point selling it on to the next poor person who winds up killed.
