No Fred :(
The owner isn't really negiotable on his price and he doesn't believe he is in poor condition. I can't justify the amount of money he is asking due to the time and money it will take to get Fred into good order so I said thank you but I wouldn't being buying Fred.
He wasn't very happy.
So the search is back on! I am travelling up to Brisbane (about 1400kms north!) to see my Dad in 2 weeks so I am seeing if there are any horses on the way that I can look at.
Thank you for all opinions about Fred - please watch this space for more ponies!!!!!!
In the mean time have a little dream with me! :)
