The OP didn't appear to know that abbreviation and yes, it is easier to just type QH. The problem with Craigslist is that the majority of people who post there aren't going to be professional about it. It's free and a really simple site. If someone really wants to sell their horse and not be somewhat sketchy about it, I think they should use an equine classifieds site rather than the "farm and garden" section on Craigslist.
But, like I said I got my horse from an ad I saw on Craigslist and he's the apple of my eye and I love him dearly. So I have no regrets using the site. <3
