    goodness. He is super cute, but I think my favorite part of the ad is this

    "the names mean what they are"



    If that was true, 'I Can Win' would have brought in more than jut under 100K from her 50 races....

    Can't beat $20s though, unless it's free. And we all know what they say about free horses.

    "Currently makes him a very easy riding horse." That's sad, I want to go pick him up just so no one will ride him while he is in pain

    Of course with older grey horses, all I can wonder is whether or not he has melanoma issues

    I'm pretty sure that he's not saying that "Im Not Fooling" is a serious horse, but rather that knowing who the horse's ancestors are can give you some insight into what the horse is like to work with.

    That whole ad makes me sad that there are people out there like this owning animals and having children...

    I'm not really a grey fan but he is a good looking horse!!

    Looks like they are still riding him as he is, saddle sweat marks on him.
    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.

    Of course they are still riding him! His pain issue "currently makes him a very easy rider for anyone". And who among us can pass up riding a painful, easy horse? The "easy" part always makes ME overlook the painful part.

    Poor horse. I can hear the seller now, telling the new owner that of course this guy will make a wonderful kids horse, as long as they NEVER treat his pain issue.

    I want to know why they think an injection would cure his lameness? Are they suggesting drugging the horse to mask the pain or that there is some treatment that they haven't bothered with that could fix the lameness?

    I'd guess those pictures are old, actually, as they're in Indiana and in the photos all the trees have leaves on them and they don't right now.

    Yeah, I don't think those were taken last week or anything.

    I got a really different vibe from that post than I think most of you did. I thought it sounded like the poster was selling him for someone else or otherwise not really responsible for him. They say he "must have been hurt sometime in the fall," that they have to be able to say he was sold, etc. I think it sounds like a family member or someone got stuck with him, maybe hopped up on him once or twice to see how he went under saddle, and then is "selling" him (in quotes since it is more or less a giveaway at $20).

    Not that the poor thing is in a good situation right now or anything, but it doesn't sound to me like he's being ridden heavily. I do hope he lands in a good home.
