    no... an' the guy don't live in no run down shack... no sir... ( were there enuf double negatives?)

    there are billionaires without a high school education and there are HS grads who cain't spell. Don't mean nuthin'.

    I'm glad to see a nice, mellow,plump white horse with training, doing a job and without too many permanent yellow/brown stains.

    He is simply gorgeous and I thought to myself "Wow, a beautiful well fed, taken care of horse on Craigslist..there are miracles"

    I think that's a step up from the OMGish broke. I've ridden a few of those in my time.

    There have been times, when after watching an owner tack up and work a sale horse, I've decided to buy just based on the fact the current owner isn't dead or seriously injured yet.

    If the way this horse is hitched is the way they normally do it, I think he fits into that category.

    I'm thinking this horse would hanging at the skidway waiting for treats.

    DH saw this horse and thought maybe if we had a working horse we could have the other 3 as a tax right-off!

    I like this horse.

    It could be calculated. My BIL stopped at a rural cafe to try them the Dutch quote on their wall was miss spelled. They knew. They were Dutch. They had over the years,hundreds of dutch people who stoppefi to correct them leading to many sales and friendships

    Obviously it's a smart way to get an ad spread all over the internet. That is advertising that you can't buy!

    Nice horse-regardless of the spelling errors.

    Looks like the guy writes with an accent. At least he tried to "sound it out". I agree about the pictures. Nice fence and neat backgrounds. Rather see bad spelling than bad horsekeeping.

    I like the fella. Since he's a horse, yep, there's a chance of him stepping on your toe but overall, he 'looks' to be safe as can be.

    As for the words in the ad, h*ll, that ain't nuthin' to some that I see around my stomping grounds. You have to have a degree in Sussing Out Meanings to know what the posters are talking about! Those are the ones I object to. If I have to take more than a few seconds of looking at a sentence to figure it out, then I think the poster should have taken some time to figure out how to spell something. There was one post locally, on CL, I finally sent the OP a note asking them what in heaven's name was their ad about! I know it was rude but I was interested in the picture but had no idea what the poster wanted to do with it. It won't kill anyone to ask someone to edit an ad for them, if it's that bad.

    The other ones which kill me are when people use 'then' instead of 'than' and 'loose' instead of 'lose'.

    I was referring to this. Not every horse listed on craigslist needs "saving", poor spelling or no. And the spelling is hysterical, but that doesn't mean that the owner is stupid or doesn't take care of his/her animals.

    Is this sort of like the old farmer in James Herriots' book who said his horse had 'Tritis'? Turns out it was arthritis. Have to have an ear for things like this.

    This ad isn't that bad lol I mean come on, yes it isn't even close to perfect, but we all have seen much much worse.

    I wish it said how tall he was, but it tells me that he is a pretty cool horse if you wanted a big guy. He looks great and has a lovely happy-go-lucky expression. I want to cuddle him and kiss that nose! The owner took decent confo pictures on level ground with good backgrounds, nothing too distracting. I can't comment on how he's hitched, but from previous comments I'd say he must be a pretty steady eddy.

    I like him. ~ and he's clearly not in a 'need to be rescue situation'

    He is a lovely horse, and they have corrected the spelling errors. He's not overpriced at all. If I were in the market for a driving Percheron, I'd snap him up myself.
