No offend - but are you sure that there wasn't possibly a misunderstanding, unwillingly by the seller? I had once a six year old broodmare for sale, she was ranch raised and pretty much untouched. Since she wasn't handled I couldn't tell much about her disposition, while her dam was a very reliable ranch and kids horse. So I stated this in the ad - you would not believe how many people called me and wanted to buy this mare as a kids horse - they did not read thoroughly that I was selling the daughter! But I made sure that nobody came out without knowing what exactly was for sale!

Yeah, I'm sure it wasn't a misunderstanding. It's a long story, but the bottom line is she was a fraud and it wasn't the first time she did that. I understand where you're coming from though.

*sigh* So you have no initial money to buy the horse, how are you going to pay for all of it's expenses?
While the ad wasn't very great, I can understand the "looking for a free horse" thing. My family has money to take care of the expenses of owning a horse, while I am trying to find a dirt cheap to free one because my parents don't think that horses are worth buying for a lot of money (They thought my $700 mare was outrageous..) and I had a hard enough time getting the money for my girl, let alone a second horse for my boyfriend to ride!

At the moment you can pick up a darned good horse for next to nothing over here. I paid 250 for my daughter's pony, and I got Bandit in a package deal with a mare & yearling for 700. If you cant fork out the 250 for a horse in the first place what is a person going to do when the horse colics, gets cast or decides to run through a fence just to see the look of horror on you face when you see the injuries?

And of course you'll struggle, for your post I'm assuming you a teen at home? You won't be working full time, ect so I wouldnt for a second think you'd have a huge amount of money to spend - and fair play for doing what your doing. But these are apparently parents looking for a horse for their child, surely they would be mature enough to realise the expense that is going to go along with the aquired horse.

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.

Oh, I 100% agree with you on that when people think free horses are actually "free". I was just stating that that is not always the case. (:
Also, around here I can find hardly any horses that are cheap but have good sense, safe ect. There are cheap horses.. but most haven't been handled much if at all.

That's not the point foxes as trying to get at. She said that her parents CAN afford to care for a horse, but don't think that horses are worth the money to buy the actual animal I think is the point.

My family is the same.. Here in NZ, my $1000 ottb was dirt cheap, but my parents did the whole " you want me to pay that much outright for a horse?!" We can financially afford to care for (and to buy) a horse, in fact we have 3, and one requires special care.

My mum wants a QH to trek the farm on, she knows the expenses required to take care of a horse, we can afford the vet whenever it is needed, we have saddle fitters, feeds, dentists, chiropractors, whatever our horses need, they get... But mum did the whole " QH are selling for over $5000?!!!" Yes mum, they are, I told you they weren't cheap.
