She's just a regular trail horse, not too spooky, just 'general'. Around here, your lucky if you get $600-$800 for a good 'general' horse 5-12 years old. Since she's not a trained roping, barrel, head/heel horse, and she's considered 'old', she's going to have a really tough time selling her. I was darned lucky to get $600 for my four year old general mare, and she's broke enough for children and green beginners to ride.

Ohohoh, I almost forgot about this guy:
"Oreo is a 4 year old paint mustang stallion. He stands 14 hands tall and is green broke but never finished... He never bucked or even got skittish when I saddlebroke him.
He threw a beautilful paint colt with a 4 year old quarterhorse mare this year and I just seem to get my kids to ride him and finish training him so I want to find him a good home with someone
that will be able to finish training him and ride him. He comes to the fence when I call and loves to be scratched and rubbed but I just dont have time to finish him out and dont have
the heart to cut a horse that throws such beautiful colts. "

"I don't have the heart to cut an unpapered, barely broke, poorly put together 'mustang' (probably just a poorly bred QH) because he makes paint babies."

I mean really. I bet he would make a fine riding gelding, but a stallion? Nu uh. If he's so sweet and gentle, castrate him now before it's too late.

Wait! I'll fix it....

Hm. Around her people will pay tons for a child safe horse. I don't consider a well-broke horse "general", I consider it to be worth its weight in gold.

As do I In my area, people look for a horse that can really work cows or compete/are competing (the 'money makers'). Your average finished ranch horse brings in a cool 3k+. The moment you say, "Oh yeah, she/he's really awesome with kids and on trails. Not really a show horse, but well broke with a good mind" it's all of a sudden a crappy horse or to expensive. I've had people looking for a 100% DEAD BROKE, child-proof-won't-move-if-a-nuke-went-off-beside-it, completely trained, reliable, young horse........

For $300 or less.

Seriously. I had one tell me that my $400, bombproof but fun gelding was to much. He was 16. I mean, really?

Wait! I'll fix it....

I think I actually remember that one with the pic of the mini in the house lol. Craigslist is always great to look at for a laugh riot. Even in the pets section the ads can be hilarious. I've actually seen some horses posted in the pets section, which makes me laugh, because you have all these dog, cat, reptile type ads, and then a random out of the blue I have a horse for sale.

I've said this in another forum before, but while looking for horses online, I came across a horse for sale and the ad was something to the effect of "No buck, rear or bolt"... then I scrolled down the page to the images. There was a man that I kid you not, weighed at least 350-400 lbs, on this horse that was 15hh... the horse was braced and obviously struggling to stay upright. NO KIDDING YOUR HORSE HASEN'T BUCKED, REARED OR BOLTED!!!! I bet it doesn't really walk all that well, either!

Disclaimer: I am a strong believer in not asking horses to carry more than 20% of their weight, even at their best condition, much less for older/special needs horses.

Gorgeous 14.5h bay gelding

He stands 14.5 hands, Clips, loads, bathes and hauls great! 11 year old arab gelding. Supper flashy. gorgeous floaty movement that will have you in awe. NOT REGISTERED and has no papers but definitely purebred for sure.great with kids anyone can ride!!!!!Great trail horse!. Lots of energy to last all day. Screams endurance prospect. Gorgeous glossy bay coat. . serious inquires only please, no tire kickers!!
619-578-8682 The link is so that you can see the pictures. So apparently this horse is 14.5 hands, not registered, but there's no possible way it could not be a purebred arabian. Great with kids, anyone can ride, and all three pictures have a kid who's clearly just up there for looks while mom holds a lead rope attached to the halter, all taken at night, so we can't actually see this supposed glossy bay coat. Screams endurance prospect screams can't stop for anything to me. Looks like a cute horse from what I can tell, but seriously don't know what exactly was going through this persons head when he/she threw her kids up on the horse at night to take pictures.
