Officially banned from Craigslist by DH

DH says no more looking at, on, or near Craigslist. Ever. Not even for a riding mower. (Horses are listed under farm, so are lawn mowers.)

I am sitting there scrolling and clicking. Just meandering really. DH busts out laughing a couple times and I give him the odd look or 2. This rocks on for like 45 minutes. Now mind you I am going deaf and did not have my hearing aide in since I was listening to music while poking around CL and posting some of the bad adds in the thread on here.

Well, anyways, All the sudden DH taps me on the shoulder and he is almost in tears. He is cracking up at me so badly. It seems that the "low key comments" I was making to myself about the condition of some of the horses, their feet, their weight..... you see where this is headed right?

He said he was mildly amused until I ran into an add for a stallion and muttered to myself "That is the butt ugliest thing I have seen this side of alpo! Whoever left the nuts on him is TOTALLY nuts!" Evidently that struck him as hilarious. Well I proceeded to show him said stallion and he agreed. He is ugly.

THEN I showed him the pretty little filly I found..... 19 months old, bay with really deep black points, string tested to be 16+ hh, perch/tb cross. NICE bones, but sleek and sassy looking body. AND she is only $400.00 to a good home. Price is even negotiable to the right home.

I want her. It's that simple. We have room in the barn and pasture. Rascal would love the company. And if his check up doesn't go well, she would be my riding horse. If it did, she would become a project to train and sell as a nice trail mount. Granted that would be 3 or 4 years down the road....but...

He didn't fuss, muss, or yell. He went straight into the file cabinet and got out my bills due folder. He pulls out the bills for the 2 vet visits from the past week, lays them in my lap, and politely tells me to get off CL and stay off, until I regain my senses. LOL (Like that'll ever happen concerning horses.)

Then he proceeds to remind me why I work a full and a part time job. RASCAL and the expenses of the chiro, farrier, vet, ultrasounds, xrays, blah blah blah blah. Not to mention our foster dogs, our special needs dogs, the bird, and home improvements on the honey do list.

Then he says again, in a quiet way, stay off CL. Please. Just. Stay. Away. From. Craigslist.

Did I mention, I bought Rascal after seeing the add for him on CL.

So very true. She is the first one in a month or so that I liked enough to mention. She is also a REALLY good price. I found her glitch though. She won't come to you to be haltered. Owner says she is tired of playing hide and go seek with her ROFL. Yes, I did go look at her, and I am considering her still
