Critique my ad?
I know it is just a give away ad, but I would like to find a good home for my mare. Is there anything I can ad or delete?
Free horse needs home!
What you have written;
Lovely looking mare, but I personally don't think Craigslist is the BEST place to advertise her without her ending up at a killer lot. I would advertise on a more civilized (?) website like DreamHorse or Equine.com. I also would just advertise at local barns and arenas or rescues or ask your friends...since the need for a pasture buddy isn't in very high demand. Hope this helps! Good Luck!
I'm not sure what "arthritis of the canon bone" is, and that might put me off right there. I don't have a problem with advertising a horse as a companion animal or pasture puff, but I would be very specific as to WHY she can't be ridden or bred in the ad. A good prospective home will want to know the specifics of her dagnosis so they'll know what to expect in terms of maintenance and long term prognosis.
I agree that posting this on Craigslist will get you a certain type of response, and that you might be better off using horse specific sites and word of mouth to find her a good home.
Thank you very much. I have also had her advertised on Horsetopia, and Dream horse for about a month, but I was thinking about posting another one.
FYI, "arthritis" means inflammation of a joint.
You can't have arthritis in a bone. So a horse can have arthritic hocks, stifles, knees or ankles, and can even have arthritis between P2 and P3, but they can't have arthritis in a bone not associated with a joint.
It would be like saying a person has arthritis of the shin or forearm.
