How did they manage to stuff that saddle onto that huge western pad and make it all stay?

How do people look at that and say "this is acceptable"?

Why would someone put in the comment "he is not crazy"?? Has that been previously suggested or shown in his behaviour? Goes on to say:

"unfortunately he had a horrific experience with the last person who bought him and is not as good at trailering as he used to be."

Hmmm.....aren't you the last person that bought him, seeing as how you own him? Makes me wonder if someone came to buy him and had to back out because this horse isn't all she's claiming him to be.
Honestly, I don't feel there is much wrong here. I've seen plenty of horses who were green/abused but were kind. And it is very possible that the last person who bought him was not experienced enough for him, and so messed him up. At least the seller is being honest.

Im not good with english saddles but i think the stirrups are wrong
I'm trying to figure out how they even pulled that off. There is no way to run english stirrups that way without cutting a hole somewhere. O.o And thats a lovely scar she has along her girth line. Poor thing.

I guess I don't see where you guys are seeing scars. What I see is lather from being worked enough to sweat in that horribly fitting saddle and halter that's 3 sizes too big under the bridle.

I thought on her girth and under the pad was just stuffing from the pad falling out. On her face it looks like she's been rubbed by ill-fitting halters and God only knows what.

- 2011 Grade Welsh X Filly. Halter Broke only. 11 hands Mature Height. $400 Bay.
- 2012 Grade Arabian/Welsh Filly. Started on Halter. 12-13 hands Mature Height. $400 Chestnut.
- 2011 Grade QH/QP Stud Colt. Halter Broke only. 13-14 hands Mature Height. $300 Chestnut W/Flaxen Mane.
- 2002 Grade National Show Horse Mare. Halter Broke only. Started under saddle. 14+ Hands. Exposed to Welsh Stallion for 2013 foaling. $500 Chestnut Pinto.

and they breed for more grades to pass on to someone else... but with that last picture of the young stud colt in the pasture with everyone else (even their pinto mare that was "exposed" to a welsh for another oh-so-cute baby) how do they know he isn't fertile yet? Guess they haven't seen him try... but I do hope that their grade QH/QP isn't yet fertile
