I knew a fence jumper who would only jump out of the indoor areana. could be turned out in the field with a fence that is a single board an waist height and bits of rope and branchs just tied or propped against things and would never jump out. Put her in the indoor areana with the 5 foot gate and she would jump out everytime.

Myth= Free/Cheap horses are expensive.
Indy was $150 we keep her in a pasture with a shed for free and she is brushed and fussed over dailey. Other then deworming and feet trimming she isn't costing us anything.

The one thing I CANNOT stand is the people who do bother to put a picture on their ad but the picture SUCKS! I hate it! If you have the time to snap a picture at least try to make it one where you can see the horse.

Let's play which is worse?

Haha! I love that grey mare. It's mainly blurred just at her. The grass in the background isn't blurry like that. xD

The women I bought Sonya from had a great excuse.

Why are you selling her?
"Well, the old lady I bought her from was selling the 3 of them together as a package deal. I only wanted the other 2, but she wouldn't sell them to me without her. I'm sending her for meat in a couple weeks if she doesn't sell. I just don't want her."

To comment on an earlier ad, broken withers are actually not an issue. Once they are healed, they look rather weird, but the horse has no permanent issues other than having a bit of a difficult time fitting a saddle. Generally when withers are broken, it is just the top of the wings that get broken off, and given time off to heal, proper pain management, and care, most horses heal fine and can go back to doing whatever they were doing before they broke their withers. If it is recent though, then it is a big issue.
I once went to look at a horse, the ad stated that it was a Thoroughbred Arabian cross mare, who was I think they said 12 or something like that, great horse sweet personality ect. ect. ect. Well when we went out to look at the horse, it was most definately a purebred Arabian, no thoroughbred what so ever, at least 20, ribby and thin, there was NO tack in sight, just the halter and lead rope on the railing. They got on the horse and rode her bareback, all the while saying she was an awesome horse, fortunately we had my god sister with us who is an experienced horse person, so she hopped on, and then ask very nicely where the saddle and bridle were, so we could saddle her up, and the owner got a bit nervous, and said that they thought they had one in the garage, they'd have to dig around a bit, but that the horse does fine without one. We left after my god sister rode her, and she said that most likely the horse probably had issues with the saddle for whatever reason, and that it wasn't worth it trying to find out when the owners started getting evasive.

Oh and my Thoroughbred I ended up getting, we went to look at her, and they were actually very accurate with what they said in the ad, and she was a very nice horse, but I wanted to see her turned out first to see how she moved without a rider and saddle on her first, and the daughter whom the horse was for, was like "Oh, don't turn her out, she goes crazy, and then you won't be able to control her when you get on", I turned her out anyways, and she was awesome, got on her, and again she was very much push button nice calm quiet, beautiful over fences. Well she was tacked up in a twisted wire full cheek, a standing martingale that was so short that she couldn't even really properly pull her head up to get over the fences, and even when I was riding with loops in my reins because I didn't want to touch her face, she went beautifully. It was a classic case of rich child wants horse, so parents go out and buy whatever horse the daughter likes, so they ended up getting a 7 year old Thoroughbred mare for their daughter who had never ridden before in her life, and the entire year they had the mare the only person who rode her was the trainer on site, because the daughter couldn't handle her. After I went and looked at her, and was going to set up a vet check, we got a call, and they dropped the price again, and said that she had to be gone by the end of the week because they didn't want to pay another month of board, and if I didn't get her, they'd send her to auction. Needless to say I got a heck of a deal on an awesome horse, but the owners left a sour taste in my mouth.
