    Default Another craig's list bad ad.

    Yea, that's right! Advertise a 22 yr old horse as a dressage or jumper PROSPECT!
    Okey Dokey. Truly stupid people out there.

    Oy. And she thinks $2500 is a bargain for a swaybacked 22-year-old of either unknown or undisclosed breeding, just started under saddle. It's hard to believe people can be this clueless.

    I will at least give her credit for seeming to care that this mare goes to a good home.

    This is a joke, right? Please tell me this is a joke! If not, how is this poor horse still alive with an owner who is so ignorant??

    I flagged the ad. I'm hoping it's a joke too but I'm afraid this person is for real. So sad.

    Exactly. She appears to have some serious broodmare belly. Riding prospect at 22. Wow.

    Poor old girl!

    Poor old mare! I'd feel very guilty about riding her, let alone selling her as a jumping prospect. Hope she has a soft landing.

    Poor old girl. Someone needs to write that moron and tell her that people are barely getting $2500 for 3 year old SOUND OTTB's anymore, let alone something so aged. I feel really sad for the old lady.

    C'mon, there's no way that's a real ad!

    22 y/o greenbroke prospect for $2,500? Somebody has to be trying to rile up the natives.

    (I have to think it's a sham, otherwise that bottle of vodka in the freezer is going to be significantly lower tonight.)
    Homeopathy claims water can cure you since it once held medicine. That's like saying you can get sustenance from an empty plate because it once held food.

    Default a typo maybe?

    I know her confirmation is sh*tty, and she isn't a prospect for much of anything regardless, but any chance that "22" is a typo - and could possibly be 2 yrs old?

    ETA: probably not with such a sway back, eh? NM...

    I'm having a hard time believing that horse pictured is almost 17hh. On the photo alone id pin it as an old pony broodmare.
