    Alice is a nice mare but she is 100% blind and has been for 8 years she is 13 years old and gets around just fine. She has been used as a bookmark in the past as long as she was kept in a pasture with no mares who would steal her coal. She is supposed to be bred for this year in august but Im not sure. She was owned by a lady who can no longer care for her so Im just thing to help her find a home. Serious inquires only

    Wow, that's just....wow! It has to be HARD to write something that terrible! I mean, you have to be pretty far off in the first place for spellcheck/autocorrect to not give you the right word...

    Don't want nobody stealing her coal, now, ya hear?

    What I like about this ad is that it is all normal except for the one sentence that is completely bizarre.

    Must be an awfully big book to use a mare as a bookmark!

    autocorrect at its best! If any of you really want additional laughs there is damnyouautocorrect.com which is pretty darn funny...has nothing to do with horses though. ha.
