HN Classifieds: ‘ISO your grandmother’s horse’

This ad, seeking an occasional trail horse, is pretty cute. Although their requirements are minimal (“Breathing is definitely a plus”), the ad-placer is no “sucker.”

From Craigslist:

Looking for a horse safe for a beginner to trail ride, one that actually likes people (I’m speaking of the horse not the beginner). Needs to come for food, stand for saddling, walk and trot (gaited like TWH would be awesome), and lope on occasion. Breathing is definitely a plus. No vices like cribbing/chewing or dangerous habits. Will provide 5 acres fenced with plenty of rich grass and one other horse, an Arab, for company. We have a small barn with two stalls. Please, don’t dump your rejects our way. Despite this ad having “sucker” stamped all over it, we love horses and will give a good home and occasional rides to the horse. Our place is nice enough(and we are, too), that someone gave me this 8 yr. old Egyptian Arab free. Free is good…I’m in favor of it. Email or call 864-884-9284.
