that's a shame it didn't work out, but one will end up with you soon enough. My little one's first pony was a horrific looking OAP. She was still shaggy in the middle of summer, not entirely sound from an old injury (but sound enough to walk on) and only able to catch if you brought a bucket or two of patience with you :) BUT, she babysat her and was an old pet. We have gone through a few ponies since but they didn't suit until SImba. Simba is great on the lead, but I'd have serious concerns over his ability to go off the lead but he is doing his job for us at the moment and that's what counts. I'm a firm believer in whats meant for you won't pass you, and I'd be confident that the perfect pony will end up at home with you soon :)
I must dig out an old picture of Bindi so you can see exactly how ugly she was lol :)
Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.
