That poor baby is going to be one messed up horse if the owner is willing to leave all the basic beginning training work in the hands of kids, especially at such an impressionable age. And I'm just envisioning "friendly" herd being more of a knock you down trying to get the treats out of your pocket herd. If you don't have time for your horse, why are you even breeding?

I see so many ads for stallions on craigslist, where the photos are far away, horse is in a field, covered in mud, no nice conformation shots, not a whole lot if any showing, just "hey got a stallion, he's cute, kinda sweet, you should breed". If you are gonna advertise a stallion, pedigree, conformation pictures, professional pictures, show records ect., not just a half crap photo snapped while doing chores around the barn.

That's pretty much exactly what I told her in the email I replied with. I mean... Common sense, right?

Stallion ads always make me laugh. I see SO many horrible ones.
I'm not the greatest at ads, but I think I did alright by my two boys:

Regional Champion Arabian Stallion at stud! 2 for 1 Breedings! - Edmonton Livestock For Sale - Kijiji Edmonton

Introducing to Canada - GLF Magical Khascade! - Edmonton Livestock For Sale - Kijiji Edmonton

Love the looks of your avatar horse! :)

I flitter about on donedeal almost daily... and am never suprised by the amount of stupid ads. Now, in fairness alot of the ads would be fine if the seller had the ability to put together a sentence and spell some of the words right.

THE SNAKE FOR SALE for sale in Dublin - DoneDeal.ie

Dear seller: Your main photo is missing half the horses head. Also photos of your horse tied incredibly short to a wall isn't that appealing.

hores for sale in Kildare : €2,000 - DoneDeal.ie

Dear seller: It is a horse not a hores. Also, if it were a much loved family pet I would have used a title of with a bit more detail.. afterall, I am in the Horses section of donedeal already.

Potential Broodmare or point to pointer. for sale in Cork : €1,000 - DoneDeal.ie

Dear seller: WHY must you want to breed from that? There is nothing in her pedigree going back to her 4th dam to really really warrant covering her. There is a big possibility that the foal would just add to unwanted horses that will never sell for racing due to a rubbish pedigree. You haven't even included a picture of the horse for all we know her legs are on backwards. She ran in one race, as have many many other horses, find her a different career path please.

Thoroughbred for sale in Meath - DoneDeal.ie

I know JP McManus is quite possibly one of the richest men in Ireland.. but I don't think he's rich from spendin €43k on coal.

Mare pony Cheap!!! for sale in Kerry : €180 - DoneDeal.ie

I'm somewhat perplexed as to her not in foal or having a foal, but in the three photos there is a youngster attached to her hip. I know.. it may be off somebody else and I don't know it's age... BUT I just find it slightly odd.

15 hands chestnut mare for sale in Cavan : €800 - DoneDeal.ie

This has got to be the darkest shade of chesnut I've ever seen!

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Because most 10-month-old colts are good for kids if they've been handled enough, just yours hasn't been, which makes him unsuitable for kids. *facepalm*

It's actually kinda smart that they put that in there, lol! I know someone who bought their 3 year old son a 6 month old colt and let him ride him. The kid is almost 4 (maybe 4 now) and he still rides him. Some people just don't know better or don't want to listen to good advice. *shakes head*

I am aware of that. Perlinos have two blue eyes too though. As do some horses with splashed white or with frame. But doubtless you knew that too.

Anybody else think this ad is fake? I have the feeling the photo is robbed from somewhere... and selling her because she kicked and killed a dog?? I wouldn't be running out to buy something that kicks.

Mare 300 for sale in Tipperary : €300 - DoneDeal.ie

View2.jpg


Black beauty is my wondurful 5 yr auld mare. I broke her 3 years ago and she ain't looked back. She's great on the big roads and isn't afraid of the trucks.
I have to sell her as the missus is upset she kicked the dog and killed her.
First 300 and take it away she's yours.
Ring anytime

I had a Shetland that killed dogs. He was fine with any other animal, but have a dog anywhere near him, and he would go through fences to get to it.

^^Agreed, there are lots of horses that kill dogs and 9 times out of 10, it is the dog's fault for harassing the horse. My gray horse will kill a dog if he's given the chance, but I wouldn't trade him for all the money in the world.

I wouldn't hesitate to buy that horse if she truly was as nice as they claim. I also don't really have much problem believing that hubby is having to sell the mare because wifey's poor widdle doggie got killed. Spouses can make folks do lots of things they really don't want to just to keep the peace in the marriage.
