I don't really see anything wrong with either of the above two ads. At least the second seller was being honest. I had to sell a rearer once and mine was worded similarly.

And I think the "lawnmower" one posted was supposed to be funny, or cute. I don't see what is wrong with it. I think they just want to make the point that they aren't suitable for kids, but could do fine with something/someone else.

? I don't see what is wrong with that one, either. Just because they used "can't see" instead of "blind"? They are synonyms.

Well still. That's sort of an obvious thing

Exactly. It's obvious that "can't see" means blind, so it shouldn't matter which wording they chose. Saying "blind" wouldn't have changed anything, except saved the seller from typing two characters.

If you wanted to point out the ads stupidity, what about how they're asking $3,000 for a blind horse, and include no other details aside from it's blindness? That is was boggled me, not their word choice.

I think the lawn mower one was cute. That alone will make you remember the ad

The last two on the last page just look like honest ads. Be glad they're telling you the horse rears instead of letting you figure it out on your own.

lildonkey, that's like saying that all horse owners who say "sorrel" instead of "chestnut" are stupid because they're obviously the same thing.

This isn't a horse, but for boarding about a half hour away from me.

HAVE ROOM FOR A COUPLE OF HORSES. MY PLACE IS SMALL. BUT, CLEAN & QUITE. 8X10 BOX STALLS,GRAINED DAILY. NICE RIDING.NO GRAVEL ROADS. ONLY IF YOU WANT TO. $170.00 PER MONTH. BEEN BOARDING HORSES FOR 30YEARS. HAVE REFERNCES

Only if I want to what? Drive on gravel roads? Have my horses grained daily? Board at your barn? Pay $170 a month? I am so confused.

The "pasture ornament" just caught my eye. Even the horse is free, it's old and vet care still needed.

On the other I just thought the seller should point out those problems when a buyer inquires about the horse and tells their experience level when asking about the horse rather than just putting it out on the original add

Neither is really that dumb but they just caught my eye

The floor of the storage under the manger has a few rusted spots. That's mostly cosmetic, but wanted to note. If you plan to have a wedding reception in it, that would be a huge problem, but if you're just hauling horses who have no greater wish than to take a dump on the floor, it's all good.
Hahahahaha. Nice
