    Then maybe it's time that some of us wrote down, exactly what we would like to see in an ad. I'll start just with talking about pictures.

    Obviously good conformation shots and close up are a given. Right and left side profile. Also front and rear. All with horse standing four-square on solid ground. Not in dirt, sand, pasture etc. A buyer should be able to see all feet clearly. Someone should hold the horse. It should not be tied to a tree or fence, where it will probably move around before the pic is taken.
    The picture should not be taken in late afternoon sun, where it can change the real colour of the horse, considerably.
    Some buyers might like to see a close up of the head piece.
    The horse should have not just been bathed and wet. It should be well groomed and dry.
    It should have a halter which fits properly.
    The background should not be filled with junked cars, downed fencing, piles of garbage etc. Such pictures don't exactly give the buyer the idea that the horse has been well looked after.

    Hopefully, others will add to this and list what they like/want to see in ads.

    In a perfect world this would be great!

    Just a photo that shows the horse closer than 40 feet away in the pasture eating. I can't believe how many ads have the horse's with their heads down.

    Also, What on earth is a "handle"? This word is used often.
    "He has a good handle on him"

    In Texas atleast, saying that a horse has a good handle on him means that he's smooth to ride and soft mouthed. Ideally someone would use this phrase on a well brought up, well started horse that is ready to be trained for your discipline, and it should mean that the horse uses himself well and should be uncomplicated to ride. More often than not though,it ends up being iffy 'trainers' using this term to sound better >.>

    Don't worry, it doesn't mean that the horse comes with a western saddle and a fleece covered horn for your comfort or anything. Lol!

    How about if there is a soundness issue it is mentioned in the first paragraph, not as the last thing. Such as

    "Great all around horse, perfect in every way, real looker, fast, easy keeper, speaks 3 different languages, will wash dishes without breaking, does windows, good cook, great sense of ethics. This horse is the best horse you will ever find. Don't let this one get away!! Act now on this Dressage trained to level 99, Ropes, ties, clips, files, sorts, jumps over 12 feet first time without warmup and can do 12 in a row, steeple chases, loves kids, will protect your wife and kids from bad people, martial arts trained and knows how to clean a rifle. This is the best horse in the world. Can drive an auto transition, still some trouble shifting but will do it with special horse boots on. Comes complete with brand new fisher king synthetic almost saddle, and rusty saw blade we use as a bit. Don't have any current pictures so please don't ask. This horse will have to be sold sight unseen as this is the best horse in the world. Price is a steal at $500.
    This is a pure blood pedigree blue brindle munchousen harse. 240 hands and perfect conformation. Great movement. Can be used as a stud or a broodmare as well as takes home the ribbens. No need for a farrier, this horse does it all.
    Has a little tiny thing that caused one of his front legs to fall off last week, but vet says IT is fine to ride cause it is nothing really. Vet said since only one leg fell off in the 52 years IT been alive chances are no more will fall off but if another does it is still okay to ride."

    Is it a stallion or is it a gelding? And is it just me, or does he look an awful lot like a percheron?
