As I am a glutton for punishment, I tend to look at craigslist from time to time as well. Today there is one with a picture of a small/medium size mutt. They are looking for a Newfoundland male to breed with their dog as they want her to have experience of having puppies. Um, yeah, let's have some more mutts that have no homes. :( people just make me truly sad sometimes.
I guess in the case of the one you are posting, at least they are trying to find new homes. Funny how often people try to "sell" their starving horses. If you can't afford to feed your horses, maybe a donation to a rescue is a good option. Surely better then just letting them starve out on your property hoping someone will come around and pay you for them.
