Horse Nation’s inbox has been stuffed gloriously full this week with terrible Craigslist ads sent to us by readers. Here are a few of our favorites…
From Craiglist Knoxville, TN via Kalin Craig:
I have a big fat app I just got in on trade I don’t know to much a bout it. But was told it rode good but I have not rode it. Call or text 865-680-8057
From San Diego, CA via Kerry Rogers, who writes, “Somehow, I don’t think RALPH LAUREN would be impressed……..”
Its a great peace, really sets the cowboy mood in any space. It has a very Ralf Loran vibe to it. If interested please call—Gary—619-286-5680. Do not e-mail, just call.
From Houston, TX via Jennifer Higby Patterson, who writes, “WOW!!! At least they are honest…”
LUCKY IS A 10 YEAR OLD GRADE QUARTER HORSE GELDING. HE IS SORREL WITH 4 WHITE STOCKINGS AND A BLAZE. HE IS REALLY PRETTY AND FLASHY. HE WILL GET YOU NOTICED. HERE IS THE ONLY THING, HIS NAME IS LUCKY BECAUSE HE IS LUCKY THAT I HAVE NOT SHOT HIM YET. HE WILL BUCK AND IT IS NOT PREDICTIBLE. YOU MAY GET ON HIM AND RIDE HIM FOR HOURS ( HE DOES GREAT WITH COWS AND HAS BEEN A 3 D BARREL HORSE) AND THEN HE GOES FROM GOOD RIDING HORSE TO SADDLE BRONC. OR MAYBE HE WILL LET YOU RIDE HIM FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS, WEEKS, EVEN MONTHS; THEN YOU GET ON HIM ONE DAY AND HE IS LIKE “LET’S RODEO!” YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN HE IS GONNA BUCK, YOU JUST HAVE TO KNOW THAT HE WILL. HE WILL KEEP YOU ON YOUR TOES. HE IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. HE IS FAST, QUICK, CATTY, AND STRONG! BUT ONCE HE BUCKS THEN HE GOES BACK TO GOOD RIDING HORSE. HE HAS AN EXCELLENT HANDLE ON HIM – NECK REINS, SPINS, SLIDING STOPS. YOU CAN DO JUST ABOUT ANYTHING ON HIM. HOWEVER WHEN YOU GET READY TO THROW YOU LEG OVER HIM YOU MUST ASK YOURSELF ” DO I FEEL LUCKY TODAY?” THIS IS NOT FOR BEGINNERS, TRAIL RIDERS, OR KIDS. I WILL NOT SELL HIM TO ANYONE WHO IS NOT AN EXPERIENCED RIDER AND WHO DOES NOT UNDERSTAND HIS QUIRKS. HE HAS NOT BEEN RIDDEN IN SERVERAL MONTHS AND I WILL NOT RIDE HIM TO SHOW HIM TO YOU. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO BRING YOUR SADDLE AND TRY HIM. HE IS A GREAT HORSE WHO JUST HAS “FLASHBACKS” TO ANOTHER TIME AND PLACE, I THINK. REMEMBER COWBOYS AND COWGIRLS ALL YOU GOTTA DO IS ASK YOURSELF ” DO I FEEL LUCKY, WELL DO YOU?”
ASKING $600.00 OR BEST OFFER. PLEASE EMAIL OR CALL 9879-583-8325 FOR MORE INFORMATION.

From Killeen, TX via Emily, who writes, “This one sounds like it was written by Google translate.”
Promise is a Thoroughbred Mare she was born in January 2002. She is a Calm Healthy Horse. I rescued her she was real skinny her weight is coming up but needs more work. She is sweet as can be great when bathing and grooming. Picks up all for feet without Problems. I just had her Teeth floated which was the number one problem of her weight loss. She has been wormed and is on High Protein Grains. The People I got her from said that she rides very well. She loves to be groomed and played with she is a super calm Mare. Also they said that she has had a baby about 7 month ago. I like her to go to a good home were she gets her feeding on time and enough for her body. She is a Thoroughbred standing at 16 Hands wish you know they eat more then a smaller Horse.Only replay if you really Interested in giving her a forever home. She is also great with Kids no kick buck or any bad behaviors. She gets along good with other horses.

A note from the editor: Nobody loves horses more than HN readers, and it is always our greatest hope when re-posting these ads that perhaps the horses featured will be connected with a safe, caring home. If you’re in the market for an equine, please remember all the unwanted horses out there–maybe one of them is just waiting for an owner like you.
