    Maybe the owner has some issues that she doesn't care to share. The horse is UTD on vacs and Coggins

    The horse can go to Mule Days in Benson, NC - a place with legendary crowds, noise, and craziness - and be ridden all day long without a problem.
    Ahh.. sometimes you just need the right translator. Sounds like a potentially nice horse. But Dear Goddess, the ad is not even in English.

    Once you can read the ad in English, the mare sounds like she's worth her weight in diamonds.

    Wow--excellent editing job StG! You really changed the whole flavor of the ad from an assault on the English language to an ad someone with a 3 digit IQ would respond to.
    The ads with the shreds of human debris riding yearlings ..... Words fail me. Heartbreaking and enough to make one positively incandescent with rage

    Oh, and yeah, just the other day, on one of my horse FB pages, someone posted an ad for the cutest little bay mare and, get this, this was in the ad copy (having to paraphrase a bit, can't find it now but if I do, I'll post)...*ahem, cough, cough*..."Kids can ride her, she's lame but at least she won't be able to run away with a kid".

    Yes!!! **fist pump!!**

    Here we go...

    ***

    Just in case it's lost, here's the wording... "8 year old pretty bay QH mare. Super kind and gentle and is lame. Great with my little kids, an incredible walk trot horse, too lame to run away with the kids. Very, very gentle on the ground. Please email, call or text 541 XXX-XXXX."

    Thanks. It just drives me crazy that people who sell things don't put 5 minutes' thought into how they want to present it, or themselves. It's all marketing. Honestly, I don't even think that disjointedly.

    Saw this one recently ...

    "I have an 8yr old mare for sale. She's gentle and she lets you ride her. Also, about a week ago, while she was in heat, she crossed over into the neighbors yard and was mating with their male horse, so there is a chance she could be pregnant..."

    And another one that simply said, "horse for sale. Please call XXX-XXXX". No picture or any other description. I mean, seriously??


    Last one: I forget the exact wording, but basically they wanted an extra $200 if they had to be the one to pull the coggins. SERIOUSLY???
