This one seriously made me go "EEP!" An arab stallion for $50?! Oh dear!
Arabian Stallion
Arabian Stallion - $50 (Apache Junction)


Purebred Arabian Stallion. 23 years old. Good bloodlines. Good Temperament. Very well behaved for a stallion. Husband lost job, I can't afford to keep him. Needs a good home. Had given him to someone in December that I thought would be a good home but it turned out not to be a good home, He has lost weight since he has been there. So I took him back a week ago. $50 rehoming fee.

This one confuses me...his only vise is lunging? Isn't that something that people WANT their horse to do?! (Unless they mean lunging as in dragging people around with him while he's being led)
Big and Friendly Appendix Palomino Gelding Who Likes to Move!
Big and Friendly Appendix Palomino Gelding Who Likes to Move! - $1500 (Gilbert)

Trigger is our 16 year old Appendix gelding who we bought to be our first horse and just likes to move a little more than we are comfortable with. He really is a sweet boy who loves attention and food. We have put some weight on him since we got him and have worked with him on ground manners. He ties, clips, bathes, loads, tacks up, and is great for the farrier. His only vice is lunging. But if you are looking for a horse to jump on and ride, Trigger's your horse. He rides Western, English or bareback. He loves to move, knows his leads and doesn't spook, might make a very good trail horse. He is not a beginner's horse but would be really fun for someone more experienced to work with. Come and check him out and feel free to e-mail for pictures and questions.

Drafty -

Lunging = moving around a handler in a large circle on a long line at all gaits = good

Lunging = charging handlers agressively with ears back and mouth open = bad

I can only assume that this horse either doesn't do the former well, so his vice is that he doesn't lunge or that he does the latter one, entirely too well.

You'd think if she were that impressive she would post times, winnings, and link to videos though? Maybe that mistakingly put an additional 0 on there hehe

^ I agree with you there; one of my biggest pet peeves is when people don't have the time to post proof of accomplishments, be it a picture, video, or title, of their so-called world-renowned horses.

Me too. Or doesn't post age/height. You'd think that'd be a given!

Firstly, please learn how to use basic punctuation...maybe even a spell checker.

Secondly....apparently this pony has some gold stashed away somewhere that it plans to retrieve at a later date...and it's worth it! Would we consider that to be an investment??

It must be the 'farrie' that she's so good with that is guarding her waiting gold LOL. That one's funny.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

That actually looks like a real good pony!
