"I am selling a five month old colt for a friend. Well bred papers available on request. The colt is selling so cheap as it was born with bad legs and is only good as a companion colt or a breeding stud"
I know bad legs can just be a run of bad luck, but seriously. I wonder if the poor guy was fixable if they had bothered on any corrective shoeing. And so cheap is still $175 when I've seen that you can get a papered, well handled, correct weanling for $300.
