    Cool Another fruitbat moment, brought to you by CL

    http://houston.craigslist.org/grd/1715630226.html

    If she (?) really could "own a horse for cheaper, why doesn't she?

    And it might help if she (?) listed what discipline she rides. But hey, maybe she does everything!

    C'mon ESG, she already knows everything which is why she doesn't NEED to take lessons!
    Gotta love CL when you need a dose of krayzee!

    I figured it out. I actually pay anywhere from $150 to $250 a month for my horse, depending on season, shoes, vet, etc. So she could actually own a horse for cheaper if she found a free one!

    $300 +$200 lessons does come out to more than the board bill in many places.

    True, but try finding a full lease (since that's what this person seems to be looking for) on a "perfect" young horse, with no lessons required, for $500/month. Ain't happening.

    But if it is perfect she is willing to pay more than $300. Do you suppose perfect includes color and breed and other such pretty things?

    "Looking For SAfe Bombproof Arabian - $500 (Bakersfield)
    I am a novice rider that has a passion for the Arabian breed. I am looking for a horse that is deadbroke, bombproof,and safe for children. Thanks. "

    This is something I don't get, a CHILD safe horse is very rarely 500.00, they are out there, yes, but not many. A childsafe horse is expensive, and worth their weight in gold.
    I want a signature but I have nothing original to say except: "STHU and RIDE!!!

    Wonderful COTHER's I've met: belleellis, stefffic, snkstacres and janedoe726.

    "Looking For SAfe Bombproof Arabian - $500 (Bakersfield)
    I dunno, it is CL after all, but maybe this poster just wants a quiet horse to do walk-trot, and would be thrilled with a 20-year old been-there-done-that-got-the-arthritis-to-show-it kind of horse. Which in this economy could probably be found for $500 in Bakersfield.
    ...somewhere between the talent and the potato....

    Let's see...

    My Qh cost me zero. He is now 12 I have had him 5 years now. His only catch is he has to be pasture boarded because he is a stall walker.

    I just picked up horse #2. He is a 17 yo MFT. Who has mega get up and go. He is a blast to ride. His price tag was zero.

    I pay $100/horse for pasture board. My guys get EXCELLENT care. I park my trailer on site. Miles of trails to ride. Nice lighted outdoor with great footing. Indoor to come before fall.

    My total horse bills for two are under $300/mo.

    So you are thinking of leasing the younger one to this person?
