Maybe they have more than one daughter? One who trains and the 8 year old he does so well with? Otherwise, I agree that's an "Eep!" at the very least!

Registered Shetland Pony

Black and white paint pony. My daughter trained him for 3 months, then took the summer off from riding. She's been back on him for a couple of weeks. He has picked up right where he left off. My daughter is 8 years old and does very well with him. The pony doesn't have any problems taking the lead when we ride. He has never tried to runaway with her either. He moves very well and has more athleticism than the other ponies that my daughters have trained. He is two years old.
Oh, good, I'm reassured--this isn't the first horse the 8-y/o has trained. :roll:

I was confused and asked what breed he said it was and she simply stated "it's a mare gelding." i face palmed and asked what gender and she said it was a pregnant stallion... Worst idea ever.
hahahah

Why does that sentence alone send up ginormous red flags for me?

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/

Sounds to me like they EXPECT the horse to run away.

4 Year old Standard Bred Gelding!! - Strathcona County Livestock For Sale - Kijiji Strathcona County

The ad is really long, but here are some of the more key points:
Quote:
His Future home MUST have the following:

Stall/indoor barn
good Quality hay
Must be fed Extra grain twice daily ( will provide info on what he is currently on)
Must be blanketed during winter days while outdoors.
A kind Gentle owner.

NO he is not suitable to be a sleigh pulling horse, he doesnt do too well in the cold.
Quote:
I will have the FULL right to seize him on the spot if i see that he is neglected or abused or malnourished if his feet do not get trimmed regulary, If he is sick/injured and not being treated properly.
Quote:
I hold the full right to visit him unannounced.
Quote:
PICTURES WILL NOT BE PROVIDED. MUST MEET HIM IN PERSON
So naturally, I was curious and asked for the specifics on this horse - his name, height, breeding, color, etc. She refused to provide his name and bloodlines, but gave me his height. She then asked why I was interested in his bloodlines. Obviously, I'm not planning to breed a gelding, but she demanded I explain why I was interested.

She won't provide pictures, so I can't even see if this horse is worth a drive before I go out there. For all I know, he's a poorly conformed jughead with a ewe neck, roach back and club foot.

Wow.

Well, now you HAVE to go see him, sneak some photos, and report back! And toward the end of the visit (after you've secured your camera's memory card somewhere safe on your person), start dropping hints about how you're glad horses feet are so tough and their coat is so warm, and too bad your tractor broke down, but at least now you have a way to pull that hay wagon/plow/etc., and you hope he doesn't drown in the mud pit of your pasture, and is cow hay nutritious enough for horses, and how if it doesn't work out, there's a glue factory just down the road...

At this point, I'm not even interested in the horse, but I'm really tempted to go out and see him, just to meet this crazy person he has as an owner.

I wonder if she knows horses are designed to live outside? Wild horses don't have stalls to go to in the winter and they're just fine. A stalled horse can be more prone to illness than one that lives outdoors all the time.
