I wish we had the room / hay for her. She has serious conformation issues (IMHO) and was bred way too young, but she looks like she really could be a sweetheart. Unfortunately, even if we had the room / hay for her, she's way overpriced...

I hate that people don't understand the meaning of the acronym "O.B.O."!! Drives me up the freaking wall! Take this ad, for example:
Paint/Quarter Horse Mare For Free Lease(Small dep.)
I have a 14-15 year old Paint quarter horse mare 16hh.
She's a great rider but just isnt riden enough so she's a little stubborn.
No buck.
No Spook.
Looking to lease on a care lease(meaning you pay for her housing and care for the priv. To ride) for a one time 100 non ref. Deposit.
Or I will take all care and housing for her for 200obo a month.
Need her leased ASAP or I will lose her.

Please feel free to email me(they go right to my phone)

I bolded the part I am talking about. So, what she's basically saying is if someone came to her and said "I really want to lease your mare, but I can only afford $100 a month," she'd take it (or at least consider taking it). I wasn't aware that lease contracts were negotiable like that. Sorry, mini-rant over.

I'm guessing if the potential lessee brought an offer prior to leasing the horse, she'd be willing to consider it. But once a deal is struck, I doubt she's open to "OBO" every single month (i.e. The payment varying each month). Maybe she doesn't know what the going rate is, and just threw a figure out there, but with OBO so she doesn't scare people off? I don't know, but I don't think it's TOO crazy to put OBO on an ad for a lease.

Okay, I can see that, sabowin. I wasn't saying accepting different payments on a month-to-month basis, though. I was thinking more along the lines of like when you go to buy a car and dicker about the price. That being said, if she's been caring for the horse for any amount of time, you'd think she'd know almost to the dollar how much it costs to care for that horse and that the price she sets for the lease would reflect that cost. I know my BO has a lease option on his horses (he doesn't encourage it, though) and has a set price that reflects the cost of care on the horse (it was $275/ month when I was first looking at leasing a horse from when before I decided to buy Aires, but it may have gone up due to rising hay costs).

What I don't understand is what she means by "Need her leased ASAP or I will lose her." I would be concerned that I would pay the lease on the horse, only to find that the horse had been repossessed...?

Yeah, that is scary. (I guess I quit reading at the bolded part.) Though I guess if the lessee did a free lease, they would only be out the deposit, but still...very concerning!

Yeah, that was another thing that made me go O.o . The question I'd have is WHY exactly she'd lose the horse if she doesn't lease it out and for free, at that (the same lady also has a gelding for free lease up with the same terms).

Ok, first the seller lists horse for $300, then exactly one minute later posts same horse for $250. But in the first, $300 ad seller indicates they will take anything over $100.... so why would you pay $250???

Horse is "skinny, but not too skinny???"

What exactly is a full blood horse? As opposed to a half blood horse, or maybe a quarter blood.....???

Wait, it's double listed:

Actually, the horse is listed three times in about an hour.

Ok, first ad posts at 12:39, advertising horse for $300. Seller says "1 YEAR OLD CUSEN RID HER".

Wow. This one just makes me sad.

Quote:
26 year old registered, chestnut sorrel gelding. Retired heal horse. Gentle and needs a good pasture to retire in. Small, boxy with a good heart. Selling because we don't use him. $100 OBO.

He still looks to be in good health. If he has the temperament, he could make a really nice kid horse at that age. He gives them all he's got for over 20 years as a heeling horse and the best they can do for him is dump him for 100 bucks as soon as they quit riding him . Gah, that makes me so mad.


Seriously, for $10,000 and that's the best picture you have? I can get a picture better than that of one of my geldings I'd sell for 2 squirts of duck crap because he's guaranteed to buck your ass off.

Quote:
$25,000 Incentive to win any futurity his 4yr old year.
Or $10,000 at the following years Speedhorse Sweepstakes.

This gelding is by EYE SOAR by MR EYE OPENER. Out of an EASY SHEA JET MARE.

Currently in cow horse training.
Wowee!!! He's nice looking, 15 hands, and very unbroke as a 4 year old. That's just freaking awesome!!! I been looking to spend $1000 bucks on something like that.:roll:
