    She is VERY fuzzy - her baby coat wasn't completely out when her winter coat came in. She's like a Chia Pet with hooves.

    I haven't given up on the pictures. When I get one that's better than this, I'll be sure to share. I've got a new halter for her that actually the right size, so my goal for the day is to get it on her sitting nicely. It's a deep purple instead of goofy baby pink. I think it will help her look a little more grown up.

    Do you think it would help any to get a picture of her in the barn, close up with the flash, or is the natural light going to be more of an asset?

    Never ever take pictures in the barn or at dark with flash! Best pictures are really with the sun in your back, they make it friendly looking too. You are not selling a show horse, so I would put more effort into NICE pictures than super correctly squared up. Half of your potential buyers don't know too much about correct conformation anyway. The trick is: take as many pictures as you can, I take hundreds and delete 98% of them. It's digital, so who cares? Make sure the legs look straight - you filly looks "over the knee" in the pictures. If she is "over the knee" - try to take a picture where it's not that obvious.

    I also do not agree in putting all information available into an ad. Of course breed, age, size - the basics for sure, but leave the potential buyer a reason to contact you and ask questions. That is when you can start to ramble about how cute your filly is!

    Most answers I ever got on a horse ad was an ad with a neck/head shot of the horse and no more information than registry and age. I did, of course, send plenty of pictures to the interested parties, and she was sold within one week Now, this works only if you are able to answer e-mails within half a day or less.
    Always have more pictures on hand than you put out in the ad. If people ask you the same questions again that were already answered in the ad - don't mention it, just tell them again how old your filly is.

    We have the thread "dumbest horse sale ads" here - really, there should be a thread "dumbest horse sale ad inquiries" here too!

    Good luck!

    LOL, Chia pet with hooves. That is the perfect description. I definitely know how you feel though, my mini mule filly that I am selling (just got her a new home, I'm just waiting her to settle after weaning) didnt even get a chance to START losing that foal coat before getting a crazy miniature horse/donkey coat on top of it xD you can literally loose your hand in her fur.

    I have a nice gelding for sale here in Kentucky, so when you sell her, why not give me a call? Haha.
