This Craigslist ad has to be a joke.....right?

So I was casually looking through the Craigslist ads for horses just to see what was out there and I came across this ad. Now I know that we aren't supposed to make fun of people on here but I honestly believe this is a joke and I'm not going to post links or anything so it'll still be mostly annynomous. I'm just going to copy and paste the words for the ad. Tell me what you guys think because I cannot imagine that this is real!

Cute 7yo gelding $3500
Very Cute 7 yr old gelding,, Only bucks when you want to get on him, but not very hard of a buck. He will try and bite you when you saddle him, but he just wants a treat. Dose not take a bit very well, because he dose not like his ears touch.He will let you pick up his feet, but he pulls them right back and stomps them down! Watch your toes. He dose not like to leave the barn unless he has a buddy with him, you can have some one ride with you then he will go good,but not to close behind you or he will kick them. If he see's sometime he dose not like he will rear, but he is only 15 hds so he dose not rear very high. He is Ok with Vet, but has bit the Vet once, he did not mean it he was getting a shot. He will jump right into a trailer but will kick at the walls if you don't get going right away. He would make a good jumping horse , I have seen him jump over our gate.He is a bit hard to catch but if you have grain in a bucket and corner him .. he is good when you get a halter on him. He has been a lot of places mainly running lose on his own he is hard to keep in a fence. He is a easy keeper and very healthy. just don't feed him much hay , he dose cough a bit if he isn't on grass. $3500 FIRM

that HAS to be a joke. Don't you think so? I mean, they picked every possible issue that a horse can have.

The list was probably posted by somebody that got annoyed at all the ads that were posted for perfect horses that turned out to be really bad.

Trust me, I thought about it. But then I got all paranoid thinking if I emailed them, they'd use my email to hack into my computer and take over my life! Unlikely, I know but you can never be too careful these days. I just can't imagine it being real. But then I think, why would someone waste their time writing this ad as a joke? I just don't know....
