Old injury on right hind fetlock but works out of the stiffness. Had colic surgery in 2011 but completely healed. Heaves, allergic to hay and dust. Hates bugs and mud. Neurotic, but loveable. Weaves when stalled.

UTD on shots, teeth and shoeing (was going to try Eponas, but mare seems to do just fine in Ariats and Sketchers).

$1500, must be sold by FRIDAY or we are taking her to AUCTION.
Want!!! But I offer $2000 for a secure home asap!

1987 stock type grade mare. Will work hard for a soft, firm, steady hand but will not hesitate to bite or kick if offended. Generally pretty even tempered, but will get marish without warning. Touchy back due to injury, but is fine with regular work and good fitting tack. Gets along well with dogs, cats, children and other horses, though is usually towards the top of the pecking order. Has been pasture ornament recently and needs to shed a few pounds. Very easy keeper. Loves the farrier. Ties, bathes, clips and loads with ease. Never bred, though we have thought about it. Lovely tan buckskin with luxurious, black mane. Asking $800 or may trade for younger model.

(I decided to go with one of those "worst horse for sale ads")

Free to a good home:

24 year old Maiden Mare. 1/4 horse, something native american and some european in there, not sure what the other two 1/4 are. Her mane and tale are thin but shaggy, however she cleans up nicely. Overweight and needs serious work before she'll be show ready. Good "nurse" horse with young foals.

Love This Fun Thread!!

For Sale: A 1949 model chestnut mare with some leg and back/spine issues that have rendered her as a pasture ornament/puff only. She does have a history of successful foaling, but one time only. This mare has had experience with boating/water sking, tournament tennis playing and soft ball league playing. Virtually a been, there, done that individual. This horse is priceless...make offer and will go from there with maybe negotiating a dollar amount to sell or trade for all the tea and rice in China.

For sale:

1991 model grade Dutch bred palomino mare in foal to German bred stud. 15.2 hands tall, and (at the moment) fairly wide. Not spooky at all. Has done jumping, barrels, and can be ridden English or Western. She has completed extensive ground work and is a joy to be with on the ground. Will give you her best at anything she does. LOVES trail riding and water. She loves a good bath in the middle of a hot summer day (with a good roll afterwards of course) Needs an experienced rider as she will test anyone that rides. Is a one person type horse, definitely marish at times. Once you have her trust she will work her butt off for you. VERY picky eater, she will snub just about anything you give her and it changes daily so good luck with that. She has a fairly good conformation, slightly short backed, with really long legs. Very athletic mover. Needs her feet done soon, but has had A LOT of vet checkups this year due to being pregnant. Healthy as far as we know. Vet checked to be carrying a colt due in October

Will trade for some pickles and ice cream

1991 BAY TB x MARE.
Enjoys a challenge especially doing many different things. Has worked cows, evented, foxhunted, done some gaming and hunter/jumpers. Prefers cross country- full gallop & jumps everything, just don't get in her way. Likes things done her way. Eats everything. Also over thinks everything. 15.2 hh, tends towards stocky and muscular when fit. Alpha mare. Fun mare, willing to do whatever you want if you take the time and keep her interested!
Maiden mare, not sure how she'd do as a breeding prospect, seems to like foals but only for short periods of time. Very picky about other horses however, so finding the right stallion may be difficult.
Trailers alright, gets grumpy on long hauls. Good for farrier but needs shoes! Worries about the vet but is well behaved.
Allergic to dust and mold (and lots of other things).
Also some creaks and cracking noises from her joints but seems sound most of the time.
Picky about who her 'people' are. Needs experienced horse person.
Current family thinks she is priceless ;) Make an offer!

There is something about jumping a horse over a fence, something that makes you feel good. Perhaps it is the risk, the gamble. In any event it is a thing I need.

To ride a horse, is to ride the sky

1992 model 17.2 h palomino draft x leopard/frost Appaloosa mare. Has years to go! Extremely hard working. All around alpha mare. Will stand her ground but with the right owner and bribery she will come around. Has not been bred but a good broodmare prospect. Herd leader. Pushy toward most mares. Protective or defensive, not really sure. Has royal blood lines. Has a tendency or to create trouble when bored. Must be stalled at night or will sneak out to canoodle with the stallions across the fence at the neighbors.

Trail ride like a champ, morphs into a fish when in water, very competitive, fully trained western speed and western pleasure, shown western pleasure with ribbons, and started English. Tested out a couple of jumps did well with 1.5 ft potential to go higher. Has ground driven with lots of potential. Could use a refresher training as has been played with off and on since 2000. Thinks for you some days, thinks one step ahead of you some, and plods along others. Loves free or line lunging. Neck reigns. Light contact. No spurs, will flip over on you. Good all around horse for all disciplines.

Very stiff in the morning. Needs feet done. "ticklish" when cleaning out her feet but will have them picked up and serviced. UTD: on shots, coggins, and teeth. Needs a chiropractor to come visit, BADLY! Stands tied, trailering, clips all great. Bathes extremely well, did i mention fish? DOES NOT TOLERATE BLINDFOLDING. Does not care for face being touched. Loves Chinese food, sweet tea, and seafood. Allergic to pine and straw. Does well when things are in the slack side of life.

Needs someone who can love her but not work her to death every second. Needs someone who is affectionate. Needs someone who will be patient with her astray temper tantrums. But she will love you like no other.

Asking $6900.

Thanks! You know, I'm talking about me not the horse! Maybe I could make a good couch ornament! Going through a tough time here lately!
