Not too sure where to put this.

But I found an ad on craigslist. This filly needs some TLC. I wish I could get her.

I know! Just look at her hooves, I'm surprised she can stand.

I SO hate seeing people putting there animals on craigslist looking like that, because (most people) wouldnt look twice at that little filly because she's so 'scruffy' looking, and she will just continue to live a horrible life. =(

People piss me right off.


If I had the money and the space, I would get her. =)

I'm thinking about emailing them and asking for a more "current" picture. And if she still looks like that I may try to get her price WAY down. Cause no one is going to pay that much for the poor little girl

How much of that has to do with just plain crappy breeding? Before jumping to conclusions I'd ask more. There could be health issues - they could have rescued the horse from somewhere else and are trying to sell it for whatever reason. You don't know. It's never good to jump to conclusions without knowing the full story.

Yes, but with health reasons and stuff, she really wouldn't be worth $350. And they should post that on there as well.

When people are trying to sell horses you're not likely to find them posting health issues, vices or training issues. They want to sell the horse. Some people will, but most won't. So it's up to the buyer to do things like vet checks and if they don't know horses, bring someone along that can see through anything a 'bad' buyer might try to pass off.

In this case, there might be things going on because of horrible breeding. And as far as the price doesn't matter what she's really worth. A seller is going to try and get as much as they can. There are a lot of horses out there not worth 1/4 of the asking price, yet there are plenty of people out there willing to pay.

Some people don't know any better not to pay such a price for a horse that's not really worth it. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if they got 350.00 because it's a novelty type horse. I doubt anyone with decent horse knowledge would pay that but you never know.

I'm pretty sure they are the breeders.

Either way if they are selling the horse, they should consider that the new owner will have to get the hooves done, and then everything else that poor horse will need. If they rescued the horse they ought to take care of those things before rehoming. Otherwise there is no point to rescuing.

Unless you called them and they told you, you don't know. Maybe they are. Obviously the new owners would be responsible for the care of the horse. The owners may not be able to afford the care right now - a lot of people are selling horses just for that reason. The point is nobody here knows.

They could be backyard breeders that have no clue about what they are doing and are turning out crap horses. Or they might not be.

I just think it's not good or responsible to make accusations without knowing. You can always email people and ask, are there health issues, when was the last time the horse had it's feet done, and the even more relevant question, why are you selling the horse.
