Saw an ad for horse for sale or possible lease. Long ad with many "nice" things to say about this "sweetheart" of a horse until this bit here:
"I am looking for someone who is willing to work with him, he is sweet and good natured (he is not crazy) he simply needs someone who has patience and experience who is willing to give him time to adjust to a new environment."
Why would someone put in the comment "he is not crazy"?? Has that been previously suggested or shown in his behaviour? Goes on to say:
"unfortunately he had a horrific experience with the last person who bought him and is not as good at trailering as he used to be."
Hmmm.....aren't you the last person that bought him, seeing as how you own him? Makes me wonder if someone came to buy him and had to back out because this horse isn't all she's claiming him to be.
Honestly, I don't feel there is much wrong here. I've seen plenty of horses who were green/abused but were kind. And it is very possible that the last person who bought him was not experienced enough for him, and so messed him up. At least the seller is being honest. Posted via Mobile Device
found this one today and I feel bad for the horse :/
"Female paso fino horse for sale. Very nice "paso" or "walk". Reins and sadle do not comply."
Im not good with english saddles but I think the stirrups are wrong
I'm trying to figure out how they even pulled that off. There is no way to run english stirrups that way without cutting a hole somewhere. O.o And that's a lovely scar she has along her girth line. Poor thing.

And they breed for more grades to pass on to someone else... but with that last picture of the young stud colt in the pasture with everyone else (even their pinto mare that was "exposed" to a welsh for another oh-so-cute baby) how do they know he isn't fertile yet? Guess they haven't seen him try... but I do hope that their grade QH/QP isn't yet fertile
