Definitely a joke.

Anyone who is moral enough to disclose those issues also knows that a horse like that must be sold for much less.

I thought we weren't allowed to make fun of the Craigslist ads anymore?

They definitely marketed his finer points!

That was funny, and to me clearly a joke. Why waste the time to put it on CL? Because it's funny!

I'm a wedding photographer and every once in a while I'll come across an ad on CL looking for a wedding photographer for "$50 with no insurance, cell phone camera is fine" etc. Basically all the really really bad things that real photographers roll their eyes at when our clients ask us why we charge so much.

I want that horse! It's like all of our horses put together when we got them and for the price of our most expensive one. Except there is no mention of pulling back when tied. He sounds like fun.

It could be that someone was told by their parents to sell their horse so they listed all his "finer" points to make sure there were no takers.

On the other hand with some of the ads seen over the years it wouldn't surprise me if it was legitimate...some people just don't realize...

Definitely not a joke. I'm going to go buy this horse right now for my 4 year old daughter to ride. Because you know, the horse is really cute and he does tricks! He bucks, rears, and bites! And for $3,500? What a steal that is!
