Best of Craigslist: Don't mess with Texas

The Lone Star State is on fire this week when it comes to Craiglist ads (see here and here). Reader Laura S. sent us two more.

Laura's commentary:

My favorite is always the well taken sales photo that accompanies these ads.
You know, good conformation shot with clean, shiny horse. :-0       NOT.
Buckskin Mare – $450 (Buckholts)

Here is a Super nice mare for sale cheap. She has a nice pedigree which you can look over with this link: She has given us real nice babies and she throws a lot of color. She is a very easy keeper and needs nothing more than a good pasture to keep her fat and happy. She is also an easy breeder. I am selling her as a brood mare. We purchased and used her strictly as a brood mare. To my knowledge she has never been ridden and I just lead her where I wanted her with a feed bucket. I never did put a halter on her. I do think however that she would be easy to break for riding if that's what you want to do. She is perfectly sound. I don't have a current coggins but will get one if a deposit is placed on her. I AM WILLING TO BARTER.


Laura's commentary:

17 year old mare, never ridden, never even had a halter on, leads with a bucket of food…… but perfectly sound and would be easy to break to ride “if that’s what you want.” No coggins, but “WILLING TO BARTER”.

Unh huh.

Wow. Thanks Laura! Readers, if you stumble across a great horsey classified ad in your Internet wanderings, share it with Horse Nation for all to enjoy. Email the link to [email protected].
