Don't Judge a Book by Its Cover...PT 2

Out of all of my Misty Family Pony Books, Misty of Chincoteague is the one I have the most copies of. Three to be exact.
The first copy I ever bought was the newest cover edition, made for the 60th anniversary.
The funniest thing I find about the Misty of Chincoteague covers, is that none of them really look like the real pony.

The real pony had a marking that went up to her eye, while the books have variously placed facial markings.
This one is the closest to the real pony out of my three
While on my trip in Chincoteague, I was able to buy the original cover version, which matches the Breyer model. While this cover, to me, looks the least like Misty, it matches the Breyer model perfectly! And it's the original cover, and hardback even though it isn't a first printing.
I also was able to go to the Theater,

where Misty's hoof prints are. 

And I can't forget about the statue!
