Dun Roan Colt - $2500

Date: 2012-12-12, 12:12PM MST

Uniquely colored dun-roan colt (born March 2012) for sale. He is Blue Valentine-bred. Horse has dorsal stripe, dark ear tips and zebra markings on his legs. He is very sweet, has been handled 3-4 times per week since birth. He is off to a great start: halter-broke, loads into the trailer, picks up his feet, carries a saddle pad, etc... He will be gelded shortly after Christmas, so if you're looking for a stud prospect, act fast! Only being sold because of a lack of time on my part. He is a to a good home only. Serious inquiries only. Thanks


His conformation.....Holy crap..

Poor guy, hopefully he will be gelded. Looks really cute though.

I honestly didn't think it was possible for one horse to have so many serious conformational defects...but apparently I was wrong. Yikes!

Poor little guy, he's got such a sweet face. Would he even be suitable for riding? His back looks like a horror, and those legs...

I am sure he will still make a nice horse when he grows out of this very awkward age. I just don't think he makes a $2500 weanling - or stud prospect

Just breaks my heart. Poor thing. I bet he'd make a sweet pasture buddy. How are some people so ignorant.

There's not really anything wrong with this ad, I just thought it was super cute starting with the horses' names and then that the owner added that they walk really fast. I'm not too familiar with driving horses, maybe that's a quality they look for?

Freckle and Deckle are full sisters and 9 and 10 years old. They have been together all there all there life. We broke them to drive and have been driving them for 3 years. They have been to the mountains and pulled equipment to Harrisoni flats from cut off creek crossing rivers and never once bulked. They have a lot of heart and will really cover miles. They have a fast walk and will out walk most horses

Oh those poor, poor skinny calfs! Does anyone know if that's the sort of thing which SPCA will get involved with...not necessarily to PUNISH the owners if they have a legit issue (trying to play devil's advocate, but hard to do nonetheless), at least to collect those babies and take them elsewhere to be FED??

I know literally NOTHING ABOUT CATTLE, but I DO KNOW A STARVING suffering animal when I see one/many!
