My Wigwam has different hair than say some of my other G1 ponies. He has a slight hair trim, neck is solid glued down. His hair seems a more flimsy, thin and wispy type of hair than the heavier typical hair you see on G1 ponies. Are your Wigwams this way? I can't see any sign he is a rehair, but it was something I wondered. However, if he was a rehair, how did they glue down the head this well? I can't budge it. Most reglue's come apart easily. Why if he was a rehair would he have three trimmed plugs in his mane? He tail was tangled also and I had to condition it in order to brush it out. When I did brush it out some of the hair came out...small little pieces rather than a long strand. So what is up with his hair?

Hmm. My Wigwam has nice hair. It could be a flaw due to an environmental condition that happened before he came to you.

I will say that white hair is often a bit stiffer in texture and doesn't take to water and conditioner as well as some other colors do.

Never had a pony who's hair came off in small pieces before.

Yea you know its like it split off on the ends. So weird This hair is not stiff at all, it is soft, baby head type hair. Its not the same G1 hair I have seen on my other ponies with white hair. Its a bit thinner than a uk pony hair.

My Wigwam's hair seems normal too. I was cleaning up a giant Pinkie Pie talking pony and I noticed her hair is different from regular pony hair too. It's thinner and wispier.

Maybe its a really good Rehair, but with not so great material? Maybe they had access to g3 neck glue?

Ya'll I am beginning to wonder about myself. My pony situation especially. Its like there is this ancient indian curse or something at work. I was dying to own Wigwam since I am part NAI. Oh don't get me wrong I love my man. I just can't figure out why my ponies have such special needs all of the time. Either they are covered in cat pee, split personality, full of ink, break out in spots after being mint, and their hair is diseased. Perhaps they are from the Day of the Dead side of things..like from the movie Coco. I got this fella because he was near mint. Why do I believe these people. Near mint for me means hair trims, butt pucky, hair yucky, bleached out and seriously damaged, hairless ponies.

Maybe its a really good Rehair, but with not so great material? Maybe they had access to g3 neck glue?

And how would someone have accesses to this glue? Tell me girly because I want it.

Or maybe they know that with you, they'll find a loving home. Won't be customized, will be appreciated for their ah...uniqueness, won't be given to the neighbor's dog, or have their heads posted on stakes as warnings to others.

Or its an Indian curse.

This explains everything. You must appease the spirit of the vengeful pony...or else...

Actually I heard about a new glue that the Barbie community is using on the old old Barbies. I am gonna try it on my ponies. Probably CPP first in case it melts her.

Quick tell me how? It was a hairless, eyeless Masquerade.

What happened to her? Perhaps making her pretty again? Sacrificing fakies? Helping her find her missing body?

I don't have her anymore. How am I supposed to do this now? If I sacrifice another Mascarade it will just double the curse. I only have a few fakies. Possibly burn them on the full moon? If I do this how do I know an army of fakies won't try to attack me in my sleep?

Yea kick me when I down, destroy my confidence, give me nothing but hopelessness, destroy my belief in Ponymanity. Maybe I should hang one on that doll tree where ever that is.

Maybe I should visit the underworld and try to find her. I honestly can't remember what happened to her. Perhaps she was taken off by a squirrel.

Or you could call ghostbusters?
