My friend and I just went and picked up a horse that was posted on Craigslist, it said he was dead broke, 18 hands, swayback and blind. They wanted $500 for him!!! We had nothing better to do but go look at this...we came home with a 3 year old 15 hand gelding who has blue eyes(apparently this means he blind) no sway at all just high withers(still growing) and is a little bit sour but nothing we can't help him through. We got him for free because he had no coggins paper...needless to say these people know absolutely nothing about horses and we have a great project horse!

That makes me sad, too. I had an old friend visiting last weekend, who used to work in the racing world. I showed him my horses and said I was just starting to ride the 3 yr old. He said it was a bit old to "just be starting him", and I had to explain that they aren't racehorses so aren't started at 1 1/2, we want them to be around (and useful) for more than 2 or 3 yrs. He didn't seem to understand until I pointed out all the leg injuries, fractures, etc that occur on the track. He really didn't know that it was because of their age.

3 1/2 year old TB
By the sounds of his height, he was retired as he is far to backward for the game. If he was over here, he would be let off until abotu 4 and brought in for NH.

Saying that, I'd rather somebody retire them at 2 and give them a different career bath than push a backward horse and create health issues. We've got a few 2 year olds who were broken and let off to grass to mature and grow, 3 of which are being brought in at the end of the month to get them going again.

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

So young to be doing all this :(


2 yr old bay mare for sale. http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/wonder+hartona. VERY good looking mare! Ridden last weekend through the timber on a group trail ride. Didn't make a wrong move...did absolutely everything asked of her and tried her heart out! Super gentle mare. She flexes, bends at the pole, woahs, backs...started neck reining and sidepassing...walks, trots, and lopes circles...rides out by herself and with other horses. Not mareish. Great bloodlines! She's got a great foundation on her and is ready to take whichever way you'd like! Really nice horse for the price! Please contact me through this add or TEXT only (do not call)

baby got Back!

I'm selling a great all-around, 6-year-old gelding. He stands 15.3 hands, about 1,200 pounds. Registered sorrel solid paint. Very well-built. Zippo Pine Bar in sire and dam. He's had lots of ground work done and was started in western pleasure, so he gives his head and has smooth, easy gaits. Has been ridden in walk trot, pleasure, barrels, poles, etc. but has mostly been trial ridden for the past few years and is very quiet and gentle. I've also had him around cattle. He's easy to catch, trim, and load. He's a very easy keeper and gets along very well with other horses. He stands well for the farrier and to be clipped, groomed, bathed, etc. He is up-to-date with shots, worming, and foot care. Feel free to e-mail with any questions or for pictures. $2500. Thank you!

Did you feed him Booty booster after weaning? I bet he'll be a powerhouse in the arena for ANYTHING!
