I spent just 10 minutes doing a quick search for my mom, and came up with two:

Grace is 14.2-14.3hh and will be turning 2 on may 24th she has been ridden both English and western as well as jumped small cross rails she rides well with a group or alone I have not had the chance to trail ride her yet but she has been ridden out I the fields and along the road she needs some work at the canter if you are looking to do ring work but she usually picks it up fine in the field. Grace should top out between 15-15.2hh she has a very nice build and very loud coloring she is brown black and white tobiana she is a love bug and needs a good home asking $2500

A coming two year old already ridden English/Western and JUMPED!? Why won't you let your babies grow, people! That's like asking a 6 year old to go into 5th grade! Ugh.

Then, there are the spelling mistakes, and the fact that there is exactly one period in the whole ad.

And what is tobiana? Perhaps the feminine version of tobiano?

And, IMO, she is not worth $2,500. There is nothing special about her, and she (should be) just started. Barely. Or not at all, at her age. Not to mention, if they keep jumping her, she will be lame by 10.


Lulu is the sweetest mare I have ever known. She is not mareish and loves attention. She was shown last year in showmanship, hus, and equitaton. Has points in showmanship and equitation, with a little more finishing she could take her rider to the top in both events. Due to her personaltiy she would also make a good 4h horse or intermediate rider lesson horse, or breed her for babies that will be as sweet as her. Was on a 4 hour trail ride last fall and did well, also rode her over the winter in the snow so would make excellent trail mount as well. Currently is barefoot but will have front shoes on soon. UTD on all shots and coggins as of this year. Selling due to college bills. Video on YouTube, search Dark Chocolate Diva 3/26/13.

Because, you know, a good temperament is the ONLY thing that matters when breeding...

It sounds as though you just saddled her up and took her on a 4 hour trail ride when she had not been ridden regularly. Poor horse, if that's the case.

Oh, she would make a great trail mount, because, you know, snow is just the worst footing out there. If a horse can be ridden once in snow, she must be so shpeshial! (and she's sweet too! Let's breed her! We can get non-vicious, snow-walking babies and be rich!)

Unfortunately, the video appears to have been deleted or something.

She is up for $3,000.

I shall keep an eye open...

I was casually looking at horses for sale on kijiji and found this?!?! Dried & de-boned horse tails...?!?!

****************************************
We offer two types of horse tails:

1) Dried horse tails. These are de-boned, scraped, washed, and dried. The first 6" or so at the base of the tail where it attached to the body is quite hard and stiff.
2) Tanned horse tails. These are scraped, de-boned, washed, and tanned. On the tanned horse tails, this part is a little softer and more flexible than on the dried horse tails. This part of the tail is about 3-4" wide.

The tails are 30" to 40" long. They come in different colors, predominantly black with a little brown. There are a few blonde ones, as well as some salt & pepper colored. The multi-colored tails are usually a combination of brown, red, and blond.

Native Americans use them as hair on their False Face Masks. They are also used on carousel horses and Halloween costumes.

Genus and species: Equus caballus. Ranch.

Horses are not an endangered species. No horses are killed just for the tails.

Hmm. VERY interesting. I'm sending this off to my friend in Canada. Last year she came out, to find someone had removed the tail of her Gypsy Horse gelding. Gypsies have lovely long and thick tails and whomever took it, knew what they wanted, since they left the tails of the other horses.

@Feathered Feet- Did that person just cut the hair off, or did he actually take the skin too?

I've sent the ad off to my friend. I don't remember now, exactly how the tail was stolen. Will wait to hear from her.

Featheredfeet, I hope your friend finds the person who did that to her horse! I saw stories about cut tails on here but it never happened to us or anyone I know in Ontario.

When I randomly found that posting on kijiji, my jaw just dropped. I had to share!! I can't help but wonder where the tails come from. Because they say it is "de-boned", could it come from the slaughterhouse? Maybe someone they know works there..? I can't see anyone cutting a tail with the bone on a horse that's alive... What's leading me to think that is that last comment: "Horses are not an endangered species. No horses are killed just for the tails."

"Horses are not an endangered species. No horses are killed just for the tails."

Even still, what this person says, it is rather a ghastly concept, isn't it. I have heard of many a horse's tail being cut off, here in the US. It is horrible, since the horse then has no means of cooling and getting rid of flies in the summer, and awful for those who show their horses. Obviously, if it is only hair which is cut, it will grow again, but not for a long time, to full length.

Can't be quite sure what I'd do, if I caught a person doing such things to a horse of mine but to be sure, he/she wouldn't be doing it again!

I am an odd man out. I assumed that the tails were coming from a slaughterhouse, and given that, thought, "Well, at least more of the horse is actually getting used for something." The idea that someone would do that to a horse illegally and other than when they're already dead horrifies me.
