Is anybody looking for a rescue? : [
 
Some idiot is trying to get rid of their 27-year-old kid-safe mare for $50 on Craigslist. I'm nearby and I can get her and arrange transportation if anybody wants her. I'll even pay the purchase price for you.


Here's a picture of her:

Oh my gosh, that is heart breaking. I hope someone can relocate her. Bless your heart for trying to do this, I hope it works out.

On a side not, maybe this is a bad idea, but what are the legalities of posting an add for a free horse? don't post pictures or any other info that what is already posted. If someone contacts you, then go ahead and explain the situation and forward them over to this add?

Yeah, that's exactly why I didn't post the link to the ad. If somebody is interested in her, I'll just send them the lady's email address.

Sorry I didn't explain myself well. I meant, what about going online and posting a separate add for a free horse. Double the possibility of the horse getting a home. Having an add say "FREE" is sometimes a lot more successful than one that will say $50.00

Nope, D; no horse is free. This free horse would eat me out of house and home.

I HATE craigslist, it makes me sick. RARELY do I see responsible pet owners use that site.

I got my macaw off that site to a scumbag and then got it vet checked and it had liver cancer. I payed 1k and the lady gave me what I now know was forged/fake vet papers.

Horse care is never free, getting a horse can be.

That can be said of any site.

Where were you during the "vet check"?

Yeah, I suppose so... But anybody who thinks saving $50 on the purchase price will be even a little bit significant after a few months probably shouldn't own a horse.

Wow, that sucks 8 |

Did you at least get your money back?

My2geldings, I mean have you really seen craigslist (the pet part)? it's like a site for bad owners who are looking for a quick buck or trying to get rid of the third batch of kittens their cat had to migrate too (though not everyone is a horrible person). I wasn't at the vet check because she live in a different state, I wasn't about to get a $300+ plane ticket to fly over. I learned my lesson.

Cloud, Sadly no D; I kept all the emails and got the phone records but it wasn't worth going to court for. I would end up paying way more in court fees than what I spent on the bird. Not to mention when I got her the bird was unbanned (it's illegal to sell an unbanned bird). Boy do I have a deep hatred for people.

It such a vague statement to make. I have seen horrible adds on dozens of other sites. Those people that frequent CL also frequent every other online animals advertizing sites. I don't see how this particular one would be any worst than any others.

Thanks for any info...
