Lately there have been a lot of ads on Craigslist in my area that I think are kind of dumb. Mind you, good, young horses are going in my area for under 1000. There is a family that keeps advertising the SAME 2 horses separately but I know they are the same because of the phone number and the pictures with the same tubby guy on them. Both horses are over 20 and supposedly have earned breeder futurities (one is a gelding), and high point awards at AQHA National Shows (even though they claim there is some issue with the breeder so they aren't registered) and they go on and on about their accomplishments and want $8,000 for the gelding and 10,000 for the "breedable mare." In the pictures both horses look worse off than the rescues my friend occasionally takes in, all skin and bone.
As if a person in their right mind would buy a horse over 20 for 8K, let alone 10K? I think it's pure stupidity or else someone is being forced to sell his horses and is putting up unreasonable prices so they won't sell.
