I don't think this is a bad ad at all. I know many people that have taken free horses to use ONLY as companions. And with free horses you always have to worry about shady people so I don't see anything wrong with them having some stipulations. Her last foaling could have possibly gone badly and she was injured in some way which is why they are now saying she isn't safe to ride or breed. Would you rather them say she is sound to ride/breed and lie? The horse looks like it's well taken care of from those pics and I am not sure why this ad is so horrible. Maybe I overlooked something?

I think the point is, they want someone else to care for their horse that cannot be ridden or bred. She could have continuous vet bills associated with her injury. With the current market with all the free or nearly free, young, sound horses, they are not likely going to find someone to fork food and care into an injured mare that you can only look at. Best would be if they kept their injured horse so they can make sure she is well cared for. Be a companion to their horses who she is already familiar with. IMO

My thought is that they should think about keeping her as a pasture pet if they are worried about her. You can't guaranty that someone isn't going to try to ride her or breed her.

She is free...lol . Like I said I have known many people in the current market that have taken free companion horses and have been happy with them. It seems like if they feel they can't afford her the BEST option would be to give her away to someone that could....? JMO :) I don't see anything farfetched about giving an unsound horse away for free.

^^^I agree there is nothing far fetching in giving away an unsound horse. But they should be aware that people will most likely take her and ride her any way or turn around an sell her. I know people that look for free horses then put them back on the market for a few hundred dollars. They might get lucky and find some one who wants to feed a pasture pet. I wish her the best of luck. I still think the only way to guaranty that she has a good home is to keep her. IMO IDk perhaps I am wrong. I hope so for the mare's sake.

Not sure why you would cross those breeds, but I would bring that guy home in a heart beat! Especially at that price!

He is quite a looker, especially in the second picture
I wonder how old he is? One of my pet peeves in horse ads, never posting their age
