^Most of the horse people I've known were women, and they were good at correcting bad behavior from horses and were top notch trainers. :) A lot of the horse industry is made up of women. What rock has this guy been under? But I digress. Hehe.

But it seems like he's being self-deprecating about it, like maybe a woman could handle this horse, but he can't even catch him. I don't know... It's just weird.
I took it more as a "doesn't like men" sort of comment. Women can handle the horse, men can't.

Still poorly worded..

Why would you give someone a "baby" horse. That spells a disaster to me. Lol

I am sooooo confused about this ad. They're saying their three-year-old is a great beginner horse, which is mildly distressing. Then they say that she's missing her right eye, but that she has a little vision in it. Well, which is it? Is she completely missing the eye or just blind in it or what?
3Yr old true Dun Roan mare **Beginner Prospect
Rhythm is my unregsitered 3 year old dun roan mare, she is about 15.1 and 1200Lbs. She is a Dun Roan, she does have the zebra stripes and dorsal stripe, Rhythem is easy to catch, saddles and bridles good, picks up all 4 feet, stands while tied, she has been rode in the indoor and outdoor arena, she does wonderful in the hills and on the trails, Not spooky or nutty going down the trail. Can ride with or with out other horses. I have used her as a lesson horse and I have also let my beginner friends ride her on the trails. She has no fight and it a very loving horse. She does have one flaw, she is missing her right eye, she does have a little vision in it, it does not effect her riding or anything like that, you wouldn't notice unless something was said. Asking $800 OBO/Willing to deal

I think many of these bizarre ads come from people who are not truly horse people but have ended up with horses and don't have the vocabulary. The ads may be funny to us but it makes me wonder if this is just a language barrier or are these really ignorant people some poor horse is stuck with. It's amazing how many people think owning a horse is equivalent to having a goldfish. Not quite the same responsibility

You can usually tell which ones are indicative of a language barrier and which ones are from the truly ignorant. At least, that's been my experience. Of course, that could be the case with me because I've lived with that language barrier (through culture, living in Tucson and dealing with many Hispanic people, and through family, having been married into a Mexican family for several years).

Also, people who really did the research would be surprised at the level of care required by owning fish. Granted, it isn't as costly as owning a horse, but on the whole, I'd say fish-keeping (in the TRUE sense of the term) is, while not as demanding as owning a horse, more demanding than, say, owning a dog or cat. I can say this because I've done all of those.

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.

Rioso is a very kind responsive gelding. A true partner. He has had years of professional training in both western pleasure and dressage and has been shown as well. Owner does not have the time he deserves, has owned him since he was 3 months old(now 12yrs). Was ridden as a stallion most of his life and he has always been well behaved. Light in the bridle, moves off leg. Will go in the arena or on the trail, as well as go on all day cattle drives. He has great endurance. Super mover, his sire is Bravio. This is a horse that is safe and will take care of you. Price reduced!!


Wow. You REALLY think your horse will sell for $9500?!

That's not bad for an Andalusian.
