I'm looking for a horse, so I went onto craigslist to see if any were listed close to me. I came across and ad that said "please help me save this horse. I can't afford it and if it doesn't get a new home by may 14 it will go to the slaughter house because it has a cribbing problem." Its a pretty horse and looks slightly under weight. There were not any other details and the contact info wasn't for the person who listed the ad (according to the ad) it was for the person who "is sending the horse off to slaughter."
I say all this to simply ask, is this horse worth looking into? I don't want to have a horse slaughtered for something easily fixed, and he looks pretty. Is there many ads like this one where they put a "sob story" to get you to buy the horse thinking your doing the horse a favor when really you bought yourself a lot of problems.
I feel bad not trying to save him, but I have come across so many sob stories I don't know what to believe anymore when it comes to something like this.
What are yalls view on the situation? Ad? And if I should feel bad for not looking into getting him?
