    Nice 15 hh 7 yr old grade Rocky Mountain horse mare with nice hips and leggy . Nice balanced confo .Light Sooty Buckskin mare with dapples year round (from the sooty gene) . No markings or socks ,but has a scar right above her eye from trailer accident as a yearling . Loads and trailers well , loves to be groomed , barefoot (NICE tough wide feet) , and has a nice long thick mane & tail .Nice smooth gaits and will trot if qued correctly .Hides from studs ,and ingores geldings ; as she is slightly shy .

    Has a good bit of experiance for her age; this girl is broke . Advanced beginner safe ,because she doesn't like yanking or hanging on her mouth . LOVES trail riding ,and would make a great competitive trail horse .Has a little confidence problem ,but fixes it's self with a confident rider or another confident horse . Loves foals ,and is very playful once she has bonded with another horse . Has a slight gimp if worked too hard ,and more likely if it's in deep sand . But with a day off she's good to go the next day . Kinda lazy ,but with conditioning it goes away . Easykeeper ,stays the same weight year round on grass hay, pasture 24/7 ,and a vit/mineral block. Not ribby ,and not fluffy . Has alot of heart and gives her all . $3,000 firm!

    Lol. Ill try.
    15h all around mare, 7yrs old, brown with freckled face, splash white, bald face and blue eyes. Sunburns easy. Long and thick mane and tail. Has jaw problem, so bitless only. Does well with it. No breeding, does not do well with foals. Very timid and shy but goes through and over everything on trail. Does good with beginners, good teacher. Needs forward rider. Does well in shows, english is her forte but goes western too.
    Call for price.

    If I was buying, id stay far away from me. Lol.

    This is so much fun!

    1991 warmblood type mare, around 16.2hh, bay. Very enthusiastic and a hard worker, although not known for respecting personal space. Good keeper, although currently well muscled and fit, does put weight on quickly when out of work ;).

    Suitable for beginners under supervision, but has tendency to get confused if aids aren't properly applied. Would make great lead file, hacks alone or in company, loads well but not the best traveller. Needs plenty of turnout or vices develop. Doesn't bite/kick/buck/spook but can be hard to catch if she doesn't want to be caught. Not a fan of the vet. Best kept with geldings as tends to get beaten up by bossy mares. Not mareish.

    Has done a bit of everything, particular potential in showjumping/eventing although needs a confident rider over more complex cross country combinations. Has done some very nice dressage but likes a bit more excitement.

    Overall a nice prospect, very willing to please, but could be easily soured in the wrong hands - just coming into her prime now and needs a quiet, confident, experienced owner to learn from. Price on asking including full (very large) wardrobe - no time wasters please.

    Very aged German warmblood x light bay mare for sale to good home only! Was 17 hands, appears shorter now. Nice short back with long legs. A bit of a potbelly right now, and mane a bit thinner than when she was younger, but still a good mare.

    She has done many thing since we've owned her, including trails, driving, barrel racing, hunter/jumper, and Dressage. Experienced show mare. Will ride in arena or trails, but can get erratic when worked on roads, especially if others on the road. Has produced a colt an a filly over thirty years ago, both very nice but high maintenance like their mother! Also has a couple of teen filllies, which need a lot of schooling. (would consider letting new owner have these too)

    Not being sold as a broodmare because she has been refusing all stallions for a few years now. Plus I think she is too old.

    Very easy keeper! Owner must keep all treats locked up from this mare, especially chocolate!!! Will eat most anything you want to feed her, not a picky eater at all. Could loose a few pounds & will need to get back in shape for optimum performance. Still has some good years left though!

    Very marish at times, must be in charge and will challenge newcomers. Best for an experienced rider because she will definitely try to get away with things.

    This mare likes her stall and will become very angry if the bedding is not soft enough. Messy in the stall, would be best to have hired help. Was spoiled when a youngster so likes to be waited on.

    Shots & vaccines up-to-date, needs new shoes frequently, could use a teeth cleaning.

    This mare is high maintenance, prospective owner must prove ability to maintain horse in comfort. Loves to travel but happy to stay home. Active, but prefers it "to be her own idea", so do not force her! Still has lots of buck in her if you tick her off. Can occasionally turn on people for no apparent reason, but usually good-tempered and eager to please.

    Recently sent to be reschooled, has been at trainers for 3 yrs, but now graduated. Ready for new career. Make offer, home more important than money.

    For Sale: 15 year old TB mare.

    Currently being trained to jump. Has jumped up to 2'5" and has shown potential to go higher. Leads, clips, ties, and loads well. Is great for the vet and farrier. Needs shoes on all four hooves. Easy keeper but can be picky. Needs to lose a few pounds and is at her best when worked at least once a day.

    This sweet mare needs an intermediate or advanced rider to reach her full potential. She will not rear, buck, or bolt. She is simply in another world the majority of the time and will often seem surprised to learn that she has a rider on a her back after all, even near the end of the lesson. Should be doing bounces and ground pole work at least once a week as she can be clumsy and needs reminders that her hooves will not magically go over everything on their own.

    Can be spooky but will only flinch, and if she's given a few seconds to get over it she's fine.

    Is not an alpha by any means. One time we found her in the pasture kicking herself with the other horses standing by and seeming to laugh. Will be bullied if put in with dominant-type horses.

    Is UTD on shots and worming.

    Has a sweet attitude and is (mostly) willing to work with some motivation. Can't be bothered to do anything difficult on a Monday.

    Selling for $500 and a plate of chocolate chip cookies.

    This thread was GENIUS! You guys are so funny I laughed my tail off!

    FREE TO A GOOD HOME:
    1980 Mare, AppaloosaXIrishWB X PaintXIrish,French,GermanWB 15.2hh, Brown, stocky, flashy with darker ridiculously full mane and tail. Super low matenience, gets fat off air, hard feet, refuses to wear shoes unless she has to go out in public. Has done just about anything but best as a reliable, sure footed trail horse.

    As for vices... Needs to be watched around the bottle, can get cantankerous if allowed free rein, has been known to trot on a few tables! Prefers to be left alone, can be nice in public but I'd watch her around catty, snooty, herd bound mares. Has been known to put them in their place. Has thrown an INCREDIBLY rare almost genetically impossible Pali filly that looked nothing like her, she is priceless. Do not intend on breeding this mare, she could potentially kill the stud in the act! Is unable to be bred again due to potentially life threatening complications.
    Despises other mares foals and barn cats, has been known to bite, kick, and neigh really mean at them. Best to be pastured alone or with an older, richer gelding.
    Pretty easy to keep, requires immaculate conditions, but nothing fancy.

    This mare will drag you through hell and back if you treat her right, push her too far for too long and she will EXPLODE! But that's only happened a couple times. Happiest out in the wild, barefoot, carefree, with really cool people. Tack her up in bling or loud colors and she'll REFUSE to move, better to just ride her bareback without a bit. LOVES cool music played in the barn, dances really wild with the music. Gets creative around in the barn, watch her with paint, you might end up with tie dye walls....

    She's happy where she's at, but if you can put up with this come get her! The local stud would probably REALLY appreciate it!

    These are hilarious. So I just haffta join in...

    For Sale 1978 model mare American Indian Buckskin and German warmblood cross. About 16 hands and very stocky. She is VERY mareish cause she was worked hard and put up wet in her younger years. So she now prefers to take it easy and pick and choose her events. Enjoys trail rides, swimming and hanging out with other horses and their people. Only wants to be rode by mature riders, does not want anything to do with young immature ones that don't know what they are doing. There is absolutely no way that she could be an instruction horse. If you treat her right she will do anything for you even though she may balk some at first. She would be great on a mini-farm cause she loves all kinds of animals.
    She has a very well mannered 10 year old stud colt that refuses to leave her side. So it would HAVE to be a package deal. Asking $2500 or best offer by the best looking man.
