sorry but i hate when I'm looking for hay-- another breed of horse-- or something unrelated completely and there is an ad for a horse i dont really want.. good way to get your ad marked as spam for not being in the right category.. Just a heads up. :D

You spend more time telling a buyer what you want, than what you are selling.

Besides all the keywords you have listed, I don't like the first picture you put up. It may be pretty, but to me it makes her look like a bucking bronco. Additionally, I wouldn't call because she is UTD on worming and farrier, but needs coggins and vaccines. With the economy in the tank, if I was going to spend $900 on a semi broke horse, I would want it, at least, fully vetted. I would also post some pictures of her under saddle and bridle so that people can see that she has had a saddle on before.
