Nice pics! Here’s an ad from Sonja Wicentowich, who writes, “Here in Canada we tend to use Kijiji more than Craigslist, but we have┬ásome brilliant marketing experts too. This guy knows how to take a sales photo that highlights the important things (it is in fact a horse), but forces you to go out and take a look if you want to know more details, such as the horse’s color, if it has all four legs, etc.”

Oh lord. And… one more, from Krystal Kortz out of Rutledge, TN:

Thorobred/Horse – $300 (RUTLEDGE)

I have a beautiful Thorobred horse for sell to a good loving home. Her name is RED and she is a very good horse. I don’t know how old she is though, we think like 10 or so. I have had her for 3 yrs now, but she has not been ridden for a yr or more. She might be just a good companion, or just needs some riding to get her back in the groove of things. If interested please call me Cindy at 865-828-6492.


Go Riding.

Readers, if you stumble across a great horsey classified ad in your Internet wanderings, email the link to [email protected]. Who knows… maybe the horse will even find a new and improved home thanks to you!
