    That horse is a poster child for BACKYARD BREEDING FAIL.

    I love how it's been changed to $8,000 and Red Roan for color. Still wrong.

    Gidget - he has extreme "buck-knees" (or just called over at the knees). To the point where I'd be surprised if he ends up being useful for much of anything.

    As far as someone paying $9,000 for color, I see it all the time. If it has spots and a lot of hair, regardless of its conformation, people seem to go blind and insane, and think paying that kind of money is a fantastic deal.

    don't even get me started on that topic.


    I really really REALLY hope that that is a typo, but if they changed it maybe not. Who would really think they are going to get 8000 for...THAT?

    Ugh, that's ridiculous. I saw someone trying to get $4,000 for a lame horse that was underweight not trained and had a multitude of "special needs." It's insane!

    In this economy no less. I can't imagine it's a typo of it changed from $9,000 to $8,000! At least they won't get any offers!

    That is absolutely ridiculous. So it wasn't a typo, eh? Poor horse.


    I got a 1D fully trained, sound barrel horse for that price because the economy is so bad where I am.

    I'm sorry but I have to ask you why this thread is even remotely necessary?
    Are you buying the horse? No, I assume you're not.
    Is it your horse? No, I assume it isn't.

    Seriously, you can find 1000 of these type ads. Its not your horse so I don't understand how you feel it is your problem that they want $9000 for it?
    And I'm not attacking you, Lonestar, because I've seen this happen many times.
    You wanna know about over at the knee? Post a picture of the horse. But why rip on people you have no concern for?

    And how would you feel if someone posted a picture of your horse in this situation? Maybe these people think there's nothing wrong with asking $9000. It wouldn't be the first uneducated BYB seller or dealer.

    Might I remind you of this? Please only request critique of yourself or your horses!

    While threads like this one are somewhat harsh IMO, I think it's a good learning experience for those on this forum, who are new to horses, especially if they consider to buy one any soon.

    I kept looking at the ad and reading the posts and looking at the ad and reading the posts and wondering why the posts ($9000 and grey) did not match the ad I was reading.

    Well said, kmacdougall... this thread is about nothing more than trying to make oneself feel superior to the person with the horse for sale.

    Ummm no. The horse is unbalanced and has something funky going on in the legs-not 9000 dolars worthy
