Some freakin flithy horse traders bought chance. How do I know? One of the people interested in him when he was for sale and whom I emailed back saying he sold, forwarded me his craigslist ad. They bought him under false pretneces, lieing about everything they were going to do with him. Just so y'all know, I sold hom for -gasp- $300. Why? Because I wanted him gone quick to a good home, and because he had vices that I didn't enjoy.
They reposed him 4 DAYS LATER on the same website (craigslist) they found him off of. This is what the ad said:
Date: 2010-04-19, 11:55PM Chance, registered as "Tiny Chex Bar", is a 10 year old, 15.2 hand, APHA gelding. This sweet boy is unbelievably patient, kind, willing, and personable. Chance has beautiful transitions, including walk to lope, and nice stops. He rides in just about any bridle, from two handed in a snaffle, to one handed in a curb, he's a happy boy with a good handle on him. This guy stands quietly and waits while being tied, saddled, mounted, or ridden. He is great for the farrier and currently wearing 4 shoes. Chance is an easy keeper, healthy, sound, and ready to be someone's Drill Team mount, Trail/Parade horse, or all around Pleasure horse for many years to come. He is well trained, so would appreciate an advanced beginner on up. Jumps in the trailer like a charm, easy to catch, NO vices!!!! Impossible not to fall in love with! $2,500

How many lies can I pick out? Many. Here's a copy of my original ad: I have a gelding for sale. He's 10 years old, measured 4 times at 15 hands, and solid bay, registed in the APHA as "Tiny Chex Bar". Needs to be backed or worked with by experienced hand. Not working out for me because he is very barrel sour from his previous owner, and I like to barrel race. He is really stocky and sweet on the ground. First to the gate, loads, ties, fine with feet, etc. Calm, willing. Has reared before. Never can barrel race or go riding on trails alone, but he's good boy and pretty responsive. Just got back from trianers. For sale so cheap to a very good, forever home only. $300
They told us when they bought him that they would be keeping him for a long time, he was going to fit in perfectly with thier trail riding group, etc, etc.
So......... being absolutly angered to the brim, so much so that my friends kinda backed away (hehe), I got home and posted an..... ANTI-AD! Woot!
Right next to their ad on craigslist..... it said: I sold Chance, aka " Tiny Chex Bar" 5 DAYS AGO, to these people, who promised us he was going to a great, forever home where he will not have to relive his past again. DO NOT BUY THIS HORSE FOR 2500! The reason I sld him is that he can NEVER do gymkhana's again, because he goes crazy reared, running away with you,etc when he gets in the arena! He can't go on trail rides by himslef without being a freak either. Chance is super sweet and loving, but not somthing I would put I beginner on-EVER! These people are HORSETRADERS! They bought him from me for $300 for a REASON!
Chance is only 9, and is 15 hands solid, not 15.2.
What they say on their ad and website is a LIE! He came with shoes on. They've never seen him with the frrier, and have only had him since WEDNESDAY, the 14th! I can not beleive I sold Chance to a freakin' lieing horsetrader, and do not want anyone to have to go through being cheated into buying a horse. I have a copy of his papers, and 2 bills of sale- one from when we got him, one from when we sold him- to back up whoever doesn't beileve me. Tehy are only going by our word taht he has trail miles.
I would like them to say why they think he is well trained. Yes, he is a good, solid $1000 dollar horse on a good day, with his gaits and leads. He was appraised my my neighbor- a PRO BARREL RACER!
Attached is a pic of hime when I had him, and a pic of them 5 days into owning this horse. All I can do now is hope that karma will come back to them and slap them upside the head.
And there I attached the pics.
It made me feel better. I know they legally own him, but the least I can do for interested people and Chance is to post an anti-ad.
Might it be immature? Yes. Did it make me feel better? Yes. Has it worked? ABSOLUTELY!
Within an hour, I got an email from a person saying she's so sorry that happened to Chance, and asked if I could charge them with fruad (can't).
AND?! They removed their ad from craigslist. Haha- busted! I wonder how many complaints they got! Will I stop at this? Not a chance. Wherever they put up an ad, besides their website, I will follow! MUHAHAHA! (I might not go that far, but....)
And the person that originally gave me the link to the ad said " It will suck for them when a little kid or inexperienced rider gets injured when he acts up".
NOTE: Don't wrry about he original ad I posted. I told them more about him in the email, so they knew excalty what they were getting.
After the anti-ad, I'm moving on. I have Kariba to worry about now :)
