I thought I had no more shock left in me but that poor pony standing in front of the barb wire fence, awful. And the one, only $300 a month to lease a shawed horse. Who could pass that up.

I wonder what type of shawl they put over their horse?

I have met several people who use the term snow shoes for winter snow pads to help prevent snow balls. So that part does not seem weird. But shawed for shod is kind of funny.

I went to go look at a couple of horses with a friend. Both the ones they were selling were completely filled with burrs. Manes, tails, forelocks, AND they were covered in mud. Oh and they would only move if you whipped the crap out of them. She wanted at least 3x more than these horses were worth.

buahahaha funniest ad i've ever seen in the newspapers!

Pair of chaps for bull riding. used once for about 7.5 seconds.

To rein a horse is not only to guide him,
but also to control his every movement.

When I got Sun her forelock was FULL of burrs. I finally got them all out and all that was left was a big poof of flaxen hairs on her forehead. I need to post pics.

paint colt beautiful bay with 2 blue eyes would make excellent riding horse once broken in for adult or child.

must sell as soon as possible
halter broken, floats, ties, picks up feet, etc"

This girl sounds really young


Im going to be educating kind beginner horses with PC in mind, alot of kids are riding bossy unruly ponies :)

Im looking at horses under 12hh, if you have something in your paddock your wasting let me know, minature and shetlands are my main market.

Not looking to pay alot, i can do training as payment, ie you give me a pony and i do some work with your other pony.

Thanks for your time,"


"Elansu Calibre Jewel- aka Cally

"we have 5 thoroughbred mares to sell as soon as 500.00 each and will give free services to our well bred thoroughbreed stallion, that price is if you take more then one" I should really bold and italic the whole ad.

(I am going to write this ad as honestly as possible, so forgive my bluntness please, but I want this guy to end up in the most suitable home possible for him.) Rocky (APHA Name: Scenic Rocket Bar) is an 11 year old APHA registered gelding who is possibly the dumbest horse I've ever owned (through no fault of his own). Currently stands 15.3h (with an official stick, on concrete, this is not an eyeball estimate) and is essentially a golden retriever with hooves. His previous owner passed away due to brain cancer, and Rocky was his pasture pet, so he essentially never had to do anything except be loved on and stand around looking pretty for 10 years (which he is extremely good at). He has WONDERFUL ground manners, is a doll for the farrier and vet, and couldn't be any sweeter, but under saddle, he's dumb as a stone. There isn't a mean bone in his body, but he genuinely needs to be taught to use his brain as he currently has the retention capabilities of a brick. He will lunge no problem, walk, trot, whoa, back, etc without a problem under saddle (runs into his canter, but its there), but you need to be very clear and basically treat him like a 3 year old since he tends to forget everything you taught him the day before. He's just very reliant on his owner/rider for direction and instruction, and as I do only barrel racing & pole bending, I need a horse with something between his ears other than dust and cobwebs. He lives up to the phrase "Nice house, nobody home" and he's a wonderful horse to have around the barn (no bad habits, easy to get along with, low man on the totem pole), but my horses have to be able to work for me, and asking him to run a pole pattern (with 12+ flying changes) is a monumental task that I think would end with him needing a psychotherapist. His ideal situation would be a teenager that wants her own (cheap), pretty gelding that will love on him and mess with him on a daily basis and eventually take him to 4H or open shows or make him into a playday horse. He is UTD on shots, worming, 2010 Coggins etc, had his teeth floated in May and had a Power Pac done at the same time. He IS low man on the totem pole (definitely a gentle giant) and the other horses pick on him (he would rather run away and go off by himself than hang with the herd), so he's a little thin right now (compared to the pictures from Feb), but he's gaining weight steadily. He has nice hard feet and will most likely never need shoes. Price on this guy is $600. That's what I paid for him in Feb, with no vet work, etc, so I have a LOT more into him than that, but he's doing nothing here except being a lawn ornament and while he does it very well, its not fitting into my program.
Phone calls only please, I can be reached anytime at (248) XXX-XXXX, please leave a voicemail if no answer.

Oh. My.Gosh that is by far the cutest darn thing i have ever red...

Basicly a golden retriver on hooves or wait, he lives up to the saying Nice house, nobody home" And he gets bullied!!

Love it! Now thats original!
