Also, at 15 if she is physically sound she has proven her durability.

How many of these Camelot horse are bought by people who think they can work miracles with them and they end up back there because most of them are beyond what the average person can deal with
Yes she is pretty but she is also very neglected so could have been through all sorts of a life
There are lots of horses already in Rescue Centres that have been checked over and evaluated - why not look to one of them and leave them a space to rescue horses like this

She doesn't look "very neglected" to me. She needs to gain some weight and get some exercise. She's not on the verge of starving, her eyes are bright, and she's not beat up. Not trying to be rude or anything, just my personal opinion.

Someone posted that ad on one of her photos, and I've seen it before. I actually was going to ask if she hadn't been Western.
The white front leg doesn't match.. the horse at auction has a marking that dips down in the front, while the craigslist horse goes straight around. The auction horse also has a black nose below the white, not pink.

Her ribs are sticking out, her spine is standing out, her neck is really thin as are her quarters. You can't tell if her eyes are bright or not from a photograph
Depends on what level you are on but IMO this horse has been very underfed and to me that is neglect. It may have happened over a long period or it may be more recent.
These horses have to have a Coggins now at this sale as they were shut down for lack of records on the horses so it should be possible to at least see who her previous owner was.

There is some wisdom here. If you are not experienced, buying at an auction can be a huge mistake.. especially if you have your heart set on "rescue." You may get the horse home and find out the horse is totally unsuitable or has medical issues (most horses are at auctions for a reason).

If you are unwilling to take the horse back and realize a loss if things are not as they seem, an auction is probably not the way to go. You need to be a bit hard hearted to do auctions.

Oh I don't disagree that there has been neglect, just in my experience I wouldn't define her condition as very neglected. To me, that would look more like this horse who is thinner and has an injury:

Twiz, I have sadly seen far worse than that, so to me that isn't "very neglected" either - there is no question of neglect, it's just that to me, VERY neglected is my next door neighbours' horses, one of which looks something like this (pic off Google):


And I have seen, in person, worse still...

The horse is neglected- It's up to an individual and the individuals world experiences and emotions that class it as "minimal" "very" "a little bit"...
