Funny Horse Ads

Reading the thread for worse horse seller excuses I was inspired to make a thread for any funny horse ads!

Here's a Craigslist ad I came across a few months ago and had to save:

“Big grade gelding. Been used as a pickup horse until he got hooked by a bull. Think he has a split personality, some days he’s great, some days he’s a real prick. No secrets here, you need to tranq him to shoe him or he will try and kick your head off. He has been used for branding, moving cows, ranch roping ect. And like I said, some days he is great, we have had beginner riders on him and they have done fine, I have ridden him in the hills or gathered on him and he was fine,He is not great to catch, although we have him turmed out on 140 acres so he can leave if he wants, but in a smaller pen he is much better. he just needs someone that isnt going to take his sh** on a regular basis. He needs to be taken and used. If you are looking for a horse that you can ride twice a year, well then this is not the horse for you., But if you use your horse as often as you change your pants then he will probably suit you perfect. We bought him with the intention of selling him and because we have more than enough horses he has gone to the bottom of the priority barrel. He is not a horse for the faint hearted, if you are handy and need a project or if you think you are handy and need to try and prove it. I think he is about 11 years old. 15.3 hands. Anwsers to the name of Dick. Ok, he doesn’t anwser, thats just what I call him. $2,500 obo”

And here's a nice quit baby sister for you:

"We call him ” Smooth ” , his registered name is ” UgotTheWholeTownTalkin ” is a 13 year old foaled April 25 , 1997. This is a GREAT horse. You can goto the hills, work your cattle, then let your city friends and kids go for a ride on him. Take him to the pin and head or heel. You can let your kids ride in the Gymkhana . He will walk in and out quiet , and then stand with his head and feet still until its your next turn.this is a nice horse.begginer and kid safe to the most exspirenced will do it all. a baby sister or a real ranch horse or take him the arena and a top competeter in any event barrels poles sorting penning or back inthe box and rope either end he’s done it all a good athelete and a quit baby sister all in one come see him"

I love craigslist!!!! Today I saw an ad for an 8 y/o gelding, with 70 days of professional training, but who "only needs a little more work to be safe to ride", and "stands sort of still to saddle, but won't usually take a bit- been ridden 6 times. . .", for only $800! Umm, what exactly did the trainer DO for 70 days?!

I LOVE the first ad! LOL

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
