Best looking *cough* clydesdale EVER :)

White Clydesdale Riding Cob for sale in Galway : €450 - DoneDeal.ie

Dear some of Ireland: just because your horse is feathered, that does not make it a clydesdale. A clydesdale is a breed, and as far as I'm aware they do not come in this colour :)

Furthermore, WHY was that bred?

That 'Clydesdale', looks like some horribly bred Gypsy or Gypsy cross. Probably has had the feather shaved at some point.

Phone conversation that just happened
Me: "Hi! I'm calling about your horse for sale?"
Person: "yeah!"
Me: "I'm looking for a new lesson horse, a lot of my students are very new beginners-"
Person: "oh, no, no. That's a bad idea. Those pictures were from over the summer and he's being a pain in the butt now. Yeah he needs someone who can work with him because he's like, pulling back now and just being a little!!... Ugh!"
Me: "oh! Ok, we'll thank you very much for being honest with me"
Person:" yeah, I don't want anyone to get hurt"
Me: "well, good luck finding him a home!"
This is what the ad said
I cant keep this horse.... He is great to ride, my little eight year old sister loves him. However, I have too many horses too deal with at the moment; so I need to sell. Please contact me with any questions! Please call ...........

The pictures were all of an 8 year old handling and riding him.

I will say, the honesty is refreshing.

At least they didn't waste your time trying to get rid of their horse.

The pony ad now says sold-hope he goes to a better home.

There are a heck of a lot of ads for cobs that claim they are clydes... for some reason it appears that a lot of people in Ireland assume clydesdale just means "heavy & feathered"

There is a LOT of really poor qualities cobs... you will come across the odd qualities cob, but the most part these are bred by backyard breeders who haven't a clue :( I say that donedeal.ie is flooded with them, and if you see people in the photos a lot will be teenage boys in tracksuits and runners.

The ones I find humorous are the ones that say "must sell today".

Okay, so if you don't sell today, then what?
