    Oh, pertinent info is that the horse is across the country and so we can't just drive over, slap a french link on it, and ride it around. We have to fly there.

    Oh, my heart aches for this little guy. They must be crazy to think they'll get $125. If they're lucky, they'll get the pony gone without a visit from their local AC.
