    Horse ad Review.

    We've decided to sell our older paint mare, Sophie, and I've got it posted on & Craigslist...I'd love some reviews on it...I will not post the ad on here because I put a ton of pictures with them.

    Here are the links,

    The thing that concerns me is that your ad makes it look as if you're lying about her condition. You say one of the reasons you're selling is because she's getting 'stiff' and then you go onto emphasize that she is not a 'broken down horse' or 'bag of bones' which can be a bit misleading.

    The pictures you have are okay, but they seem a bit off to me? Carrying her head at her knees and bending awkwardly in a couple of them. And maybe include some good conformation shots. I have to say the angle of the second picture on the Craigslist ad makes her look downright silly

    Remember, with an initial ad you don't have to disclose everything, people assume you don't, so by disclosing all of her vices can lead people to assume there is MORE wrong with her. I don't mean to lie, but try to emphasize her strong points.

    Also, is she a strictly Western horse? Does she go English? Does she have any accomplishments?

    Yeah I can see your point of view about her having a hidden problem...Do you think I should include that or not? As in she is getting a little stiff, but she's great once you warm her up...So how do I post it in a way that makes her look good?

    Is this any better?

    There is where I disagree with Dreamcatcher. I don't think you should go with the bare minimum, when I look at an ad I want to see some actual information, get a decent feel for the horse BEFORE I contact for more specific information. Maybe give a quick summary at the top for people to skim before they read on, but I wouldn't actually cut things out.

    Here's a link to an ad I'm currently running:

    Pinto Filly

    I've been getting responses since 10 mins after the ad came up.

    Hmm, could it be you are in a different location? I've gotten several replies but not tons...

    I'm down south in the middle of the drought, so not sure.

    I got a guy wanting to look at her possibly Saturday...So hopefully???? I put an ad in the local farmers newspaper and that's where I took it he saw her at... I've never advertized before so this is a first for me.
