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.
Sorry but I really don't really see the problem with this ad. Some places expect you to grain your horse if you they need it but they offer to do it. As for the gravel road, that is a little odd but I understand it to mean that you can avoid the gravel unless you need to cross it or you want to go some place that is only accessed by the road. $170 is the cost per month - why is that confusing?

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I think that what Poseidon is saying is that it isn't clear what exactly they are referring to when they say "only if you want to." Only if I want to what? If they mean grain, they should have placed "Only if you want to" by the grain comment, not two remarks later. If it is gravel roads they are talking about, it could have said, "Gravel roads, but other roads are available for use, as well," or something like that. It's just the wording that is confusing.

It didn't make sense to me either. I read it as "only if you want to" board at their place. Well, why would they put that in there then? Surely nobody will call unless they want to... lol.

I think those are the type of people that use "colt" and "foal" interchangeably, rather than "colt" just meaning male foal.

^^^ that and also I think the "colt mare" bit is just bad punctuation

Ugh, that is one of my pet peeves. It's not that hard to learn colt and filly. That's like learning rooster and hen.

14hh Appiano gelding, coloured cob x Appaloosa. 5 rising 6 years old. Strong sturdy pony. Half leg type horse.

Now this may be my own confusion but half leg?

Even tempered stud colt. Should mature to 15 hh. Good stocky body.

Recently had a baby and can not devote my time to the colt. I really need him gone today. Bring cash and your trailer.

I do have his sire's papers. I had purchased him. But never got the chance to put the papers in my name. I am willing to send those with the lucky new owner.

This colt has been to one show. Very mellow. Loves attention. I just need him gone today.

Cute horse, but what good are his sire's papers going to do?
