Random Horse for Sale

Sometimes I still look at horse ads for fun, even though I already have a horse and can't afford another. Someone close-ish to my area is trying to sell this horse for extremely cheap ($175). My impression of him is that he's very talented and pretty, but also a bit temperamental and in need of an advanced rider. I hope they find a good home for him. What do you think?

Dog food? Not to be rude but if I really cared about the horse I would rather give him to a friend then get a stranger to take him for 175.

Well, I'm not sure what's up with the link, but here's the ad they posted:

9 yr old 16.2 Thoroughbred gelding currently jumping 3' with ease and could easily be jumping higher. He’s done horse shows, dressage, cross country, jumping, and some trail rides. He knows lead changes, shoulders/haunches in/out, collection and lengthening; moves well off your leg, and has a quarter horse whoa. He’s been to some horse shows he’s calm and quiet outside the ring but gets excited in the ring. There have been no medical problems or lameness in the two years we’ve owned him, except for he does have a sarcoid, if you don't know what this it is a non-cancerous tumor, it is purely cosmetic and effects him in no way other than its a little ugly to look at sometimes, although it can be removed reasonably(this is not always effective thought and my vet suggested I should just leave it as its only cosmetic). He is an off the track tb. He has a playful, fun personality and does need at least an intermediate rider and an experienced horseperson on the ground as he will be a little bossy if you allow it. I am only selling him because I have bought me a trail horse and he's going to waist in the feild and I don't really have room to keep two horses, he was ridden daily until about a two months ago. This horse has had alot of work and I think the possibility's are endless with him with an experienced rider, I have pics and many videos of him jumping if your interested. Anyone interested is more than welcome to come try him out, if you have an arena I may be willing to bring him to you to try out as we don't have access to one anymore.(depending on the distance) I am asking $300 he is def. Worth alot more but I don't feel like I can ask it with the sarcoid. I can email larger pics. Also the Sarcoid is not in any way why I am selling him, I don't ride him like I should and he has tons of potential I hate seeing him go to waist and I don't have room to keep two horses right now, the sarcoid is purely cosmetic. Again pics and videos available. This is a repost due to the fact I had someone send a deposit and was supposed to get him and now wont return my emails, I do not have pics of the sarcoid I will send you the pics and videos I have if you want to see more come look at him. Serious Inquires only and please read the ad in its entirety before contact me. Below are links to some videos. No I will not hold him for anyone not even with a deposit, have been burnt twice so far on this kind of deal so the first person here with the $ gets him.

They also posted several YouTube videos. Here's a couple:

I would not take a horse from someone like that.

Why are they reducing his price that much for a sarcoid, Unless they know he has cancer.

^ they might need to get rid of himquick because they are going broke (aka don't have the money) to keep two horses. I think he's a nice hrose, I would go and see him if I was looking for another horse.

I have no clue. I just noticed that he seems like a really nice talented horse (for an experienced rider) and he's only priced at $175. I don't know the girl, or her reasons. I was just interested in what people thought of the horse. You're right, there probably is something fishy going on, but assuming there isn't, the horse would be a steal in my opinion.

I wouldnt look at a horse, when the owners don't give a crap who he goes to. If they don't care about that, chances are he was neglected in some way, maybe he needs shots, floating ect.
