Parental honesty

I heard this on Radio 4's News Quiz yesterday:


"Ballyderown Top Notch is a 10 year old gelding. He is a grade A registered  show jumper who was recently acquired by his current rider.  An extremely honest and experienced pony he will take any capable young rider to a very high level.  The pony is being sold reluctantly as the rider is an unappreciative spoiled brat."


Here's a link to the ad.  I hope the pony's now gone to a deserving owner, maybe one who's worked frantically at paper rounds, babysitting, and saving farms from fires in order to be able to afford him.
