Sale or Trade 14 yr Gelding - $500 (Jamestown)
"If you have a big heart, lots of time and quiet hands this guy could be your new best friend...
He is a Registered Quarter horse gelding, Skipper W bred, 15.2 h, sorrel, thick nice build, he is quiet, but a little unsure around quick movements, He was used as a foundation stallion on a large ranch in Utah, where he ran with the mares and foals, until age 7, he was gelded at age 10. He was ridden in gymkhana at a lope, trail rode in the mountains, drove cattle in the pasture and ran out with all geldings or all mares in the pasture, doesn't do well with mixed pasture buddies. We sold him a year and a half ago and during this time he was treated very roughly and lost lots of weight, we rescued him in October 2012 and have returned Utah the proper weight and his mental attitude is returning and is ready to go forward... He does have 1 major quirk he is afraid of light colored cowboy hats, why we do not know. 209-559-****"

I am sure hoping that since he was used as a foundation stallion, that the picture posted is the result of taking a picture of a bent photo

On the big Arabs thing, my best friend's Arab gelding is a true 16hh. Horrible conformation, but tall. He's heavily Bask bred.

Horse AQHA Buckskin 4 - $1 (Lakewood)

Ad reads -->

Mare 90 days Enos Yoder (driving..mt.trail riding) 1yr both of us horsemanship with Tom Mowery. He said get rid of her she will hurt me and she has. I am old & she is TOO much for me BUT I have had her since she was a yearling & feel I am responsible to the end. I will put her down if she can't find a good home. You must put up a bond $3000.
Well, if anyone falls for that I have a 26 year old that someone can pay $3000 for but she has to stay because I won't lose track of her. Not crazy, but starting to get arthritis.
Any takers?!

That sorrel looks like 3 different horses patched together. They don't say what the grey mare did-rear-buck, bolt attack? So sad to see how some horses end up.

For those wondering earlier, the cinch connector strap is called the "cinch hobble" .

To that poor sorrel horse, that looks like a 5 year old's first photoshop job. I wonder if they were maybe trying to hide his obvious founder stance....

I think my main shame in not knowing that is that I'm a western rider and I should've known XP

Found this picture on Craigslist (of course, that's where all the dumb ads are found!). I'm no conformation expert, so I don't know what to call this (club foot possibly?) but just *look* at his back feet in this pic. I don't know if its just the sand (when the lesson horse's feet are in the sand they sometimes look really square and weird because of the sand), but don't they look really weird?

That poor guy has awful feet. :( there's no way his back feet could look like that just from how he's standing in the sand

When horses are club-footed, it is most usually the rear feet which appear worse. However, you can see the front hoof is also not at the same angle as the pastern, so I think this poor fellow is club-footed all round.
