Okay all, was just browsing my local craigslist and came across this ad. Is this truly possible? I've read and heard somewhat, but never actually seen one for sale like this? OR do you think it's a marketing ploy? If really possible, how does it happen? Is the horse really like a gelding and a mare? Just curious here!
Here's what the ad says and the link. Is this a fair asking price? I have no idea when a comes to a hermaphroditic horse?!
"5 year old 15hh Clydesdale horse offered for sale for a limited time, he is done growing and is the perfect saddle size for someone who wants a hefty-boned draft without climbing up a ladder to get in the saddle! Chance is a rare hermaphrodite (both male and female), he can not breed or be bred and his temperament is mellow, laid back and easygoing like a gelding. He does not get "marish" or "studdy" he is a big puppy dog, but he is built gorgeous and has heavy feather like a stallion. He is the best of both worlds, literally! Chance can be put in safely with mares, or buddy up with a stallion without a fuss, or could be a babysitter for weanlings. He is green broke to ride and drive, knows all the basics now just needs miles put on. He stands tied, stands patiently for grooming, stands for the farrier (no stock needed), had teeth floated earlier this year. Absolute sweetheart, only selling because I am saving up to import a gypsy horse from the UK. If I can find the money elsewhere his ad will be taken down. He truly is an amazing horse. At only 15hh he also fits in a standard horse trailer, standard horse halter and standard horse sized tack for riding/driving."
