12 year old paint gelding for sale

This is my first time posting a sale ad in a horse forum. So I am a bit nervous doing this. So here it goes.

I am selling my paint gelding. Ive owned him since 2008. Last year I bought myself another horse. So paying board on 2 horses is very hard for me. So ive decided to sell my paint boy. :( Here is his ad:

Horse For Sale | Handsome/Cute Paint Gelding

I love this website. ^ The other sale sites are harder on me b/c I have to pay for them. This one was free and its great.

if you have any questions or comments please let me know.

You can post for free on equine now with one picture, and Horseclicks allows you to post for free as well. I think you can post a free text ad on dream horse. And also post on your local craigslist. There are lots of places on facebook as well to list horses. Like Tack and Horses for sale groups.

You want to advertise in as many locations as possible.

I guess my question is why do you want him to stay in your area? Once he is sold, he is sold, not yours, so I would take that out. I would also want to know why he has to be shod in front? Probably would ask why his front feet look so long and his backs so short in some of the pics.

Oh heck I guess I'm offering a critique on your ad, and you didn't want that...

*Wispers* a decent set of conformation pics, + a couple under saddle would be better than many pics that don't do him justice.

OK OK, I'm going

I wasn't asking for a *critique on the sale ad*. :(

He used to wear 4 shoes. but the blacksmith said his back feet are strong so he doesn't need back shoes. He does need front shoes though. The pictures are fine.

I want him to stay in NY or Nj so I can visit. I did that for his last owner. She came up every year.

Thank you for your comments.

Just throwing this out there.

A fair amount of people wouldn't want you to do that. I know if I bought a horse then I wouldn't want the old owner up in my business.

This is going to limit your ability to sell him greatly.

Goodluck!

You guys are wasting your "breath", the poster has been suggested this over and over on another forum.

Good luck finding a buyer Nypainthorsegal, hopefully it doesn't take an additional year to sell him.
