Thankfully I don't find many of these types of ads, but I thought this one was worth a mention.

one cremello colt/stallion

hi just letting people know i have ONE caramello colt / stallions for sale. the only work he has had is a head stall they are has a whiteish caramello colour with blue eyes pink skin the mother is about 14hands high and a excellent natured horses he will need a lot of work witch i dont have time for he has been weaned from his mum about 20 weeks ago and he does not have a name yet either he is are a great looking fellow $900
pick up only load your self

The things that really get me are
1- Who says 'weaned 20 weeks ago'? Wouldn't it be easier to say 5 months?
2- Is there one or two horses? 'Stallions' and 'they are' suggest multiple horses.
3- 'Load your self'. I take that to mean that it's gonna be a fun experience.
4- 'Caramello colour' makes me hungry... But it's made worse by the fact that they got the colour right in the title.

I have two horses for trade.
I'm more stuck on the fact that they think it's more important to make sure people know what they're willing to trade for, rather than letting the potential buyer know about the horses they have.

What if they just lost their job, and can no longer feed themselves, nevermind horses?
At least they recognize that they aren't able to take care of her and are attempting to do something about it. That's better than a lot of people do.

I would agree, Shenandoah, except that the owner states that the mare is already underweight... My guess is that this is an issue that should have been addressed long before now. If they just lost their job that's all fine and good and I'm glad they are trying to find a home for her. But why would she already be underweight? My gut suspicion is that they haven't been able to afford to feed her for a while, and are only just now doing something about it. It woyld have been much better to find her a nice home before she lost a lot of weight. Granted, I am speculating. I could have the situation all wrong, and for the sake of the mare, I hope I do.

agree - that is where I was coming from: that the horse is already underweight, not the fact that somebody admits that he can not care for the horse anymore and needs to find a new home - that is responsible if done in time.

She might have had her advertised for awhile now. Just because this is our first time seeing the ad doesn't mean its just recently been posted. I suspect they have had her advertised for awhile now.

I check this CL page almost daily, and have been for many months. This is the first time I've seen her. Maybe she advertised elsewhere, though... *shrug* Like I said, I don't know the exact situation. But a flag went up in my mind as soon as I read it.

I am in no way defending the owners. I tend to think the worse before the best, but I am trying to give them the benefit of the doubt I guess... regardless I hope someone scoops her up and starts giving her much needed groceries.

Female horse trainer

i train foals newborn to 2yrs old-
haltering,leading,teaching how to lunge, park out (gaited breds), picking up there feet and grooming.
i also train 7-15yrs old horses
senior horses 16-32yrs old if they need some light righting or they not being used ill ride them if they are really gentle ill ride them.
I love cleaning stalls, groom horses etc.
crosby/baytown/dayton/liberty.ty

my fees are $25. an hour or an hour half depending on your horse.

Is there anything right about this ad? :3 teaching newborn-two year old horses to lunge,only training 7-12 year old horses but not younger ones...my guess is that she can't really even ride and is scared. Wonder what would happen if I asked her to train Spanks, our nut-case almost-eight year old mare that blows up around saddles....she's gentle until you come up with one of those ;)
