A nice grassy area with a background that does not distract the eye. You need confo shots, especially for brood mares if that is your selling point. Make them stand square and take pictures from all angles. This would be a great thing to do to attract more buyers. A dirty, unkempt horse = uncaring owners.
2. Post their registered names and a copy of their bloodlines. This is also very important for broodmares. Do they have show records? If so, list so. Are they broke? If so, go into detail about how they handle and what they can do.
I won't comment on the breeding quality of these mares as that is irrelevant, but a lot of people feel strongly about people breeding unqualified horses when there are thousands of horses already looking for homes. Good luck helping your friend.
if they were my horses I would! I'm only helping her because she's not good on computers so im putting them on so she doesn't have to. It's her pictures, her ads, I just put them up!
Also that's why she's getting rid of them. She doesn't want to breed anymore so she's giving all her horses up. Plus she lost her stallion so that doesn't help lol
