Have you had crazy people try to buy your horse?

So I've been trying to sell this miniature ok... Well I've had bunches of calls but only two that have showed up to look and say they want him. The first couple that came sounded very nice. They were going to board him at thi great place and he was going to be a pampered little prince being an only and first horse. All excited that he is going to get a new home cause my full size horses just beat the snot out of him. Well anyways I wait and wait and I see this truck coming with a little trailer out the road a ways thinking oh that's cute they have a miniature horse trailer. Well it gets closer and closer and I realize its not a trailer its a freakin uhaul trailer. Slick metal floor nothing on them. And they thought I was going to load him on that and let him slide around for two hours. Get real. Besides the fact that the trailer was higher than the horses chest cause they had the hitch sittin on the ground. Good thing though, they got two miles from my house and the truck broke down. Well we had another one that called they wanted to know if I could get this 48" inch 6 year old miniature in the back seat of her two door car or if it could get in an extended cab pickup. Yeah that's going to happen. Oh then theres one that drove four hours to make sure her dog liked it. Had to give the dog pony rides on the horse. She'd call. I've heard of tire kickers that just want a free ride but for their dog? Ok I am just not meant to sell this poor horse. I'm ready to just answer the next inquiries for him with whats you sign? (gotta love red neck) Any other horror sales stories?

OMG....you gave the dog pony rides??? Poor pony. Do you live near NC.?

Just wanted to say that 48" is not a miniature. It's a pony.

And... why would you let her have her dog ride the pony?

Yes two pony rides to be exact. Just a little dog suprisingly the horse liked the dog and didn't have a problem with it. But yeah once is funny, scary kinda funny, but to live a life tlike that... Well lets just say the horse is better off elsewhere. No I am in PA. BUt yeah the minds in some people now a days you just wished you could see what makes the stupid turn more dominant in some than others. I have sold several riding horses in my life and ever now and again you get a "strange one" but for the most part they have been good horse people. But when you say miniature horse they seem to come out of the wood work.

That's a pretty big pony if it's 48" (12 hands)

I'm sorry that was my mistake he is 38" the last eligible for a class B mini.

All horse people are crazy, but some are nuttier than others.

This is a well known truth among those of us who have had horses for a number of years.

Minis seem to attract the crazy NONhorse folks though, because people seem to think they're just dogs on hooves, or a live version of My Little Pony.

You're going to get a lot of freaks no matter what you advertise for sale. Live animals just seem to bring out the freakiest.

Actually several clients at the clinic DO haul their minis in their vehicles. Not uncommon at all.

We hauled our mini home in the back of our truck. Haha. She's only 32 inches though. The previous owners used to haul her like that in the back of theirs when they hooked up the horse trailer and went to parks. They'd load their big horses in the trailer and the mini in the back of the truck. Since we don't have a trailer, we just hauled her that way, secured some leadropes and she was fine :)
