Okay, I wasn't quite sure what to make of this one.

5yo mare is eight-months-pregnant, they're selling her as a white QH/arab cross (I think that's what the title means), but they picture a black horse...and she's owned by a 6yo who will show you how to "raid" (ride?) her?! O.o And I'm not even remotely sure what a "toro breth" is (unless they mean some kind of bull, since "toro" is bull in Spanish).

I think they are trying to sell 2 different horses in their ad.

The first being the QHxArab (horse 1/4 "with" arab) and the second being a TB weanling.

Either those folks are not even somewhat knowledgeable in the English language (if that's the case, they may have let the 6 year old write the ad) or they are just ignorant hicks that make the human race look bad.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yeah, I got the QH/arab (wouldn't have guessed the "with" part, though lol), but not sure how they got "toro breth" out of thoroughbred. I mean, I see it now that you pointed it out, but yeesh!

As far as the language barrier (whether it be because they don't speak English or they're hicks)...all I can say is YIKES and I'm not sure which reason would be "better." O.o

That actually looks like a good horse.... If only I had some info on whether it is a gelding or mare or how well trained it is... What's a pick-up horse? Like a pick up truck?? LOL

And what does "buy a good one" mean??

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

OK here's your translation:

"For sale: 5 year old QH/Arabian/Thoroughbred cross mare, due to foal in February. She is my 6 year old son's horse and he will be willing to give you a riding demonstration.
We also have a 7 month old Thoroughbred for sale. I'm not exactly sure if it's a colt or a filly but maybe you can figure it out when you come to look. Please bring $500 for that one."

I think I get it. I wouldn't have gotten it unless someone hadn't pointed it out but:

The TH sound in "thoroughbred" would be silent if you were speaking spanish. ;)
TOH-RO BreT (the d and t are similar).

I've usually heard the term pick-up horse used to refer to those horses in the rodeos who are ridden up alongside the bucking bronco so the cowboy can hop off without falling to the ground.
