I could be wrong but....not sure I'd want my kids to have a stud for a first horse, even if he is little.

'big pet' = I've never been taught manners and am always pushing my way into your space.

My issue with their ad is not so much that they know what they want/don't want, but it is the demanding, completely snotty and entitled manner through which they have chosen to express said desires.

Who does that, and then seemingly expects folks to clamor and fall all over themselves trying to please these folks? Can you imagine attempting to sell to them? All I can imagine is the STRESS involved with (again) having to "please" such immensely entitled people!

No thank you, not now, not ever!

I see far too many stud ponies for sale as "perfect child's pony". In the last few weeks I've seen several advertised as "Perfect teaser and kid's pony"... sorry but I can't see those two jobs can not go hand in hand

Sadly plenty of uneducated people are going to end up with these ponies and going to have plenty of problems... I classmate of my daughter's mom got the child a pony, the pony chased the parents out of the field so was sent to the knackery - seriously chop his goolies off and send him to a trainer.

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.

They would be much better off if they weren't so picky on breed and registration. I understand the gelding (probably because their stud will also be on the trail rides), but for the price they want this trail horse, they need to be more open. Stick to sound, healthy, experienced trail horse with good manners, not herd bound, ect. But willing to pay $1500 for a grade gelding that meets all other criteria for a trail horse. I see no reason why they need papers in hand and only TB or AQHA for a trail horse gelding. Several years ago, my mom sold a gelding that fit in every way (including price) all that these demanding people want in a trail horse (even a preferred color of grey), except he wouldn't have fit the breed and being registered requirements.

It is okay to want particular things in a horse when you are buying, but the more particular you are, the more you better be prepared to spend. If you are on a budget that cannot exceed $500 without payments and absolutely nothing over $1500, you better be ready to be open to other possibilities (like breed and registration).

And of course they are working him on what looks like either deep sand or saw dust. Either way, not the best.

He's a cute little toot though, I'd drop by the vet to get him snipped on the way home with him. ;)
