    Default Never thought I'd start a Craigslist thread, but Oy Vey!

    "Beautiful Appaloosa stallion standing at stud! Don't have papers as I rescued him and a made off of a cow farm. Kenny has the best personality I could ever ask for. He's very willing, calm, and smart. When I got him a month ago he had no training. Now he lunges and takes a saddle and bit. These characteristics are what you want to breeds with your mare. When he was with his previous owners the woman said he had a foal with another made but I'm unsure of that. He has bred with my made though. Either way, he has wonderful conformation and markings which should be passed onto your foal. The way I breed, it that your made comes to my home and paddock breeds. (I have 3 horses and other animals so were not a facility but everything is legitimate.) Your made would stay for 7 days and after a day of being in her own paddock, she and the stallion would share a paddock. This is the easiest and most stress free way of breeding for the both of them. Made care a day is $10 which includes 2nd cut hay fed twice a day and a 10X12 stall. I can provide 12:12 but I don't have any other grain, so if you have supplements or other grain it must be sent with her. Stud fee is $250. If your made doesn't take, she can come back for a free rebreeding. (My contract states all of this) Also, your made must be up to date on all vaccinations and a negative coggins. Texts or emails preferred because I work. Calls are okay if you can't text or email, I'll get back to you when I can. (207) 480 0164 Also for sale!! "

    There are pics in the ad.

    Sounds like someone passed their "Hillbilly Horse Breeding 101" test with flying colors.

    Made, Maid? Which is it?

    Dang, should I send my fully funded 401k to her instead of the others?

    I guess her stallion doesn't mind a free rebreeding to be given away at his expense?

    And, since he makes color, he is worthy of making more with said made/maid.

    12:12. I haven't fed grain in many years, is that a type of grain? Is that 12 protein and 12 of what else? 12:12. Hmm. Got me. Oh, maybe it is like 11 herbs and spices, yeah that is it.

    And he paddock breeds made/maids? Guess nobody gets hurt and nobody runs off with the butler or other staff in the hotel.

    Well lunging and taking a saddle and a bit are the characteristics I'm looking for in a stud. I'm sold!

    Ha. No.

    :facepalm:

    He's really incredibly cute... Obviously he'd be 1000x cuter as a gelding.

    The bare feet are just making me cringe. Yes, let's handle the unbroke "rescue" stallion in bare feet. That's a good idea

    Poor guy!
    In the last picture posted he looks disgusted, as if he is thinking "get this horrible, ill fitting thing off of my back already"..

    I love those saddles. Made by Bob.

    Poor guy, he really is cute, but not "at stud" material.

    Quick, someone buy him and cut off his *ahem*(s), then market him as "Appaloosa Stallion turned made!"

    Sorry. I crack myself up.

    He's also for sale. And looks like he'd make a nice gelding. Sadly I can only afford the one I already have.

    I would have to haul about 4 hours but I wonder if she would guarantee SPOTS? I have an un-paper, 25 yo, chestnut mare and I want kolour! And if she has a colt, then I can start my very own BYB operation.

    He is really cute. Wonder what his breeding actually is, because he doesn't look like a 5th generation fugly. Not saying I'd breed to him, but he is surprisingly attractive (given the circumstances). Wonder what the mare (errr...made) that came with him looks like?

    I love that pic because' he's so obviously trying to graze, and she's hauling on him to keep the head up.

    Let's just hope the "made" that came with him isn't his mother, since the Hillbilly Breeder has bred the two of them together...

    Geez Sucker. First rule of BYB, of course he would not breed his mother so if he bred the made/mare/free horse it must not have been his mother.

    Wow. What astonishes me is how people like this are able to get/hold a job and just plain function in the everyday world. And apparently do well - looks like a nice area.

    Awww Sucker that's just line breeding ;-) I am kidding, of course.

    My real query was regarding who this horse may really be. I doubt he's an actual rescue, if she has only had him for a month and he's in good condition (for an unbroke stud). So the cow farm must have been feeding him.

    The barefoot picture makes me giggle and cringe at the same time. But he does seem like an awfully cute horse and he has a very tolerant "feel". Looks like a good "first horse" (after the required surgery and training).

    He's adorable. I'm glad he's waaaay too far away—he'd be in Tenn. minus two appendages in a heartbeat! (I'm a sucker for that "look" he's giving in the saddle photo—the Evil Princess gives me the same one!)

    Yes, I smell like a horse. No, I don't consider that to be a problem.
