This one kind of speaks for its self.
"Wanted Horse, Will Trade Alpaca"
I miss having horse and am looking for one. I don't have much money but am willing to trade my two year old true black intact male alpaca. They are easy to care for eat little (about 1/2 slice hay per day, and a little grain) Trim feet two times a year with hedge clippers, and shave them down every spring. You can sell the fur to spinners for a little profit. They are gentle natured, and don't need much space. They do need a place they can get out of the weather if they choose.
I am looking for a paint horse betweetn 3 and 12 years old. Must be healthy and sound. Riding use will just be on the roads around my home for relaxation. Horse does not have to have great bloodlines, or be super fast. I love the color buckskin, dun, or paint. Mare, gelding, stallion(least prefered). Must be a calm natured horse as it will live with my alpacas. Also my boyfriends daughter may learn to ride on this horse. So a safe horse is important to me.
So you don't care if it is a stallion, you don't have much, horses eat WAY more then 1/2 flake of hay, You want a paint horse that is kid safe, begginer safe, and pretty young(yes I have seen beginner safe young horses but they were usually pretty pricey, especially if they had color and were showable)
Just to save money on feed if I had a young pinto stallion who was halfway broke that you could sit on his back and not get bucked off I would take the alpaca.
Pretty words are not always true and true words are not always pretty.
My treasurers do not twinkle or glitter, they neigh in the night and glow in the sun
