Awwww, this would just break my 6yro's heart! He loves our mini. We just got back from the barn, where he cleaned her stall, fed her, picked her feet, brushed her out, and tried to steal shavings from my horse's stall for hers. He really cares for her, and I felt a lot of what the parents were saying.
Reading the 4yro just wants his pony back for Christmas...gah. Reading about the parents trying to explain there are people that would do such a thing...gah. Reading about the 2yro calling for Shadow...gah.
