    I know! It's crazy. In my area I see some really "good" CL ads. I will post the better ones when I see them. And I don't know about you, but calling my horse an A-hole is not usually the best description I use when trying to sell. haaa.

    Lots of bartering for board going on. But one place has even described their position as a "working student" thing. That's right, friends at home, you primarily muck, feed, water and turn in/out.

    I recently started riding a similar horse for a lady near me. Same deal.... and holy mole, someone without a clue was going to get killed!

    The text in this ad reads: "very calm and gental horse had been used to lead kids around on will trail ride but knows nothing but willing to learn loads goods good with her feet no kick or buck call..."

    At least this person states that the horse (8 year old QH Mare) knows nothing. My friend told me that they had ridden the horse. "Riding," it turns out, amounts to a guy sitting on the horse, maybe posing with a kid on the horse for a photo op.

    No buck or rear indeed. How would they know?

    this one is sad.

    Free dog. Take him (Pelham )

    He's pretty much a dog. He will hump, lick and eat anything. I hate him. Take him or I'll drop him off at your house.

    Actually this looks like a cute beastie but I thought the 'prefers to walk' was pretty funny! "Splash is a 17hh, 12 year old registered clydesdale mare with unique coloring. Absolutely 100% beginner safe for trail rides, will go anywhere and stand all day, easy to mount, trailer and work around, can be shod all around without a stock. She will trot and canter with crop but prefers to walk. Great for a large person. She is only for sale because she doesn't drive and we own a carriage company. I promise this is the most quiet and safe horse you will EVER own. " http://cnj.craigslist.org/grd/3657169393.html

    That is a cute mare. She sounds fun to have around the barn for kids to climb all over. I don't know about $4,000, but a bomb proof safe horse like that sounds fun for a family.

    I really like that mare. She's a perfect "husband horse." I hope she finds a good home.

    Default Smuckers Deluxe Pleasure Harness, Horse Size.....$250.00

    ....only on Craigslist. Yes, I bought it. I only felt slightly guilty....stuffing it quickly into my car and driving away with a cheshire grin from ear to ear. They didn't seem to know what they were selling.....

    Awesome, Daatje!!

    I missed out on a like-new Pessoa saddle by mere minutes that was sold for 450.00. She didn't even list the brand name in the ad, but I could see the "brand" on the picture. And the buyer was a new rider and probably didn't know much about the great deal she had just gotten. Sigh. But I did snap up a Mattes half pad, like-new, for 20 bucks!
