Doesn't hurt to try. She looks like a nice pony. Have you placed an ad on Dreamhorse.com? I always had better luck selling there.

farmpony84 06-10-2008 11:14 AM

I could try. I've never sold one before and I think it's going to be hard because I... can't lie? I think she's 100% on the ground and for leadline but I think she needs alot of work before I'd consider her safe to ride..........

Be 100% honest!! I can't stress that enough! Also... she's a very cute mare, but that picture isn't the greatest, and that might deter people. As a buyer, I want to see pictures that tell me something about the horse, and will skip over ads with pictures like hers. I want to see a horse standing squared, or horses that have pictures doing their discipline.
I am very opinionated when it comes to sale ads, sorry!! I just feel I have a few ideas that will get a horse sold faster :)

There is no reason why she wouldn't sell but I do think you need a better photo if you are serious about trying to sell her. The way the add reads looks to me like you don't actually want to sell her.

It's a sloppy picture and a very short add without much description.

I just want to be honost with people. Would this pic be better?

i think that would be another good pic to post up there since theres a child in the picture and she seems wonderful when hes in that corral with her.

My2Geldings 06-10-2008 07:18 PM

That picture is better. The info you have in the add is good but it's very little information. You should look up other adds that were posted to get more ideas as to what is normally posted in an add.

I don't really care for that picture. I can't see her lovely face. Take some new shots of her, maybe bathe her if necessary. I like the child in the photo just not that photo.
Pretend that you are talking to us. You gushed about how sweet this one is. Tell everyone else that too. I know you have a flair for adjectives... I read the spider post! :wink:

farmpony84 06-12-2008 01:36 PM

....evil lurks in this pretty package. She is kind and loving and sweet, she'll let you tack her up and then when you least expect it... she'll turn on you.... step on you... rip you apart with her gnarly teeth....

KIDDING!
