What's bolded second sounds legit to me. Sounds like she's a mild roarer and needs that surgery. I've never heard of it being the result of a throat infection before, but I guess it's possible.

The first part? I dunno. And why you'd put that in the ad, I dunno either.

Finally, what breed of horse is this? A 10,000 dollar weanling? What's the price on her now?

I just saw one on craigslist last night. It said the mare had an old tendon injury that does not affect her riding ability in any way. They were selling her because she cannot withstand heavy work or jumping because of the tendon.
Huh? I just thought you said it didn't effect her in any way??

Silly you. Of course it does not affect her in any way when she is standing around the pasture of giving pony rides to toddlers. Any way means 'except when doing any real work' in a horse sales ad.

A "friend" of mine has a mare and foal for sale, which they are selling because...

...Yup.

"Husband says must go. Fancy is in need of more training then we can do. Bomb proof and very friendly. The first to greet you. Use to dogs, cats, chickens, Turkeys, Peacocks. Has been saddled just not been rode. Did not offer to buck at all."

Seriously...I just ran across this ad.

I saw an ad that said a horse was "bulletproof" instead of "bombproof" i had to read it like three times to make sure I was reading it right.....either someone doens't know the term is bombproof...or someone didn't know how to spell.........I also saw an ad that said "Horse doesn't buck, bite, kick, or rear" and the picture with the ad was of the horse rearing...I thought it didn't rear??
