^LOL! No vices, he's just a cribber & stall weaver....

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Firstly, hello! I'm new to the forum! Anyway, down to business

I'd been lurking around this thread for like a week and decided to do some snooping around my local craigslist. Now, this ad has some spelling errors which made me giggle, but the context of it struck me as kinda funny as well.

My Commentary is in Italics.

1/4 mile horses with the best blood line (Fort Myers)

I have several horses for sale one is a stalin (is that anything like Joseph Stalin? ) son of Corona Cartel $19,000 O.B.O. The other is a stalion (Spelling is difficult for ya, isn't it?) son of Mr jess perry $17,000 O.B.O. I also have a son of King Corona on Especial Effort 2 years born in Florida and ready to race this year. I have still have about 9 more if you are interested please call me at (239) 245-1644. We must sell them we are moving out of the horse busness and into a Car-lot so we might take vehicels as a trade for them. please only serious offers thank you. Hablo Espanol, tambien los maquilamos.

That last bit is what made me laugh, not to mention another spelling error. I don't know about you guys, but I've never heard of anyone trading there horses for cars. I dunno, maybe It makes sense. lol, I dunno.
Nice lookin' horses though!

Sometimes I think that bad grammer and horrible spelling are requirements on Craigslist. Either that, or they have contests to see who can appear to be the most ignorant.

Haha, well greetings. Yeah, there aren't as many funny ones from our area, but you find the occasional ad that makes you scratch your head.

If they really wanted to sell their horse, you'd think that they'd invest time into using good grammar and spell check. It really makes a difference in how people view the seller and what's being sold, in my opinion.:roll:

I think the funniest thing about some ads are the unbroken, grade horse who has "unlimited potential" "could be anything" and then they list everything from running barrels to dressage to circus pony.

Sure, I'm human and so is Angelina Jolie, so I think I have the unlimited potential to be Brad's wife any day now. With the right "braking" as they'd say.

Haha, I laughed hard at this. Just like the saying, "You can be anything you want to be". Yes, I'll take a horse that can do dressage, barrels, jumping, go to work for me and do my taxes!! A girl can dream.

14.2hh traditional black and white stallion. 9 years old, runs with mares or lives alone.
Good to catch, box, easy to do, lives out. Plenty of bone and feather.
Has only been used for breeding but no reason why can't be broken for ride or drive.
Price: 1,200
Good to catch because he's too fat to run away not to mention 9 year old stallion that's done bugger all.

Eagles may soar but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

ROFL

He is so cute - like a stuffed animal. (If he'd put his thing away he'd be a little cuter, though). Do you think he really boxes?
