They are trying to sell him for $500 and think he will be snatched up fast if they get someone to believe he could be a big money earner in stud fees of $500 per mare
"Spot on Appaloosa's wants $500.00 for a Stud fee. I want $500.00 for the whole horse with as many stud fee's as a stud can produce, maybe as many as mares available. Ten a week? That's $5000.00 Right?"
Translation, buy this grade but colorful and unbroke stud for $500, then stand him for a $500 stud fee and you could breed 10 mares a week and make $5,000 in stud fees!
I did that once, bought a bred pony for my kids and when the foal was born on my farm, we raised the baby till weaning and taught it to lead and the basics you would teach a foal. The owners of the foal then picked him up and paid me a dollar a day for his care while I had him. Worked out well for me, I only paid 200 for the mare, and they paid me 150 for foal care! And at the time I didn't want a young horse to raise and train or sell anyway. Now a days (that was like 20 years ago) I would probably charge $2.50 a day.
$20 to cover cost of electric training collar.
This dog is a North American Black and Tan Jackass, 2 years old and has ADHD.
Likes to dig. Will dig his own water bowls. He will eat any kind of food or non-foods. In the past he has eaten and returned: two pig-shaped corn holders, pencils (found metal and eraser), matchbox cars, a spoon, everything out of the compost bin, and a diamond necklace.
He's REALLY friendly and will hump any dog or small child he can find. Yes, he's neutered.
Excellent jumper. Would be a great foxhunter if he was a horse.
Can not walk in a straight line.
Can not be walked in town. He will have a meltdown; yipping, spinning, and working himself up so much that he will collapse from the sheer mental exhaustion that comes from walking to the corner store.
Will not bark at strangers in your home.
Attention span maxes out at 4 seconds. Not food, toy, clicker, or praise motivated. You can watch his brain shut off. His eyes go vacant in a blink.
Pulls. Pulls HARD. Wear gloves while working with him. I have lost skin from the leash being ripped from my hands.
Will respond to shock collar beep and occasionally vibrate settings. Ignores shock setting.
If you are interested in adopting Dingus, let me know. I'll leave him attached to the mailbox for pickup.
In case you haven't guessed, this ad is for venting purposes only. You should have seen how bad he was as a puppy.
it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
That's how we ended up with Rebel... The lady bought his mom already pregnant because she liked her bloodlines and wanted to use her to breed barrel racers. Said she wasn't a fan of Rebel's daddy's lines, however... Then said, "He may end up being a fantastic barrel racer, but I don't want to wait around to find out. I'm going to be breeding my own." And tossed him onto Craigslist simply because half of his lineage didn't come from the "right" place. AND didn't take good care of him for the 6 months she had him. *sigh* I understand the reasons people do it, but it doesn't sit well with me. Then again, I'm not one of those people who cares more about bloodline than build, brain and personality. But that's just me.
It doesn't say in the ad that he is going to pay for mare care or the foal until weaned lol his ad makes it sound like, "yupp buy this mare take care of both of em and when the foal is weaned I want it back."
1. Not a horse but I still think it's just plain stupid
I will trade a 4th gen iPod touch and $20 for a puppy
Back yard is 40 x 60
2. What is a Welch? Is that like a Welsh?
Wonderful Welch Pony for Sale. 10 year old mare to good home only.
3. This one just makes me laugh. I didn't know "husband broke" was a thing but I am still green myself.
hi, we have 3 mares for sale, may trade for something of equal value, MAKE OFFER! Would rather sell then have them sit and go to waste any longer around here, we just don't have time for all our projects... may trade for a kid/husband broke quarter horse gelding.
4. Why would I give you a horse if you're too lazy to search ads?

5. This one is along the same lines. Also, why are you looking for a free horse but can't get it for an month or more?
Looking for a horse for free to the $600 price range. If it's free I'd be looking to get it mid/early may and if it's any other price not until late may/ early June also looking for a llama for free to $200 for the same as the horse please email me or text 7206489286 I've owned horses before, would take great care of them, looking for more of a pack llama, and a horse from the ages 4-15 that are broke to ride and be used for trail riding and possibly barrels! Thank you :)
6. There's nothing wrong with this ad except that I'm a believer of making your "product" look as good as possible. I think a quick brushing would have been in order before the pictures were taken.
