Oh dear–file that one under “Crimes Against Capitalization.” Here’s another, um, interesting Craigslist post from from Heather Wells. She writes, “Florida has some real gems when it comes to horsey ads. Saw this one tonight…”

2 yr old paint pony stud 11 hands – $600 (homosassa)

I have a 11 hand paint stud that is 2 yrs old he is very laid back he is green broke he will lead he has never offered to kick buck or rear he isnt scared of anything. He will stand for a farrier he is utd on everything including coggins. For more info text 352 422 1954 or 352 422 2234. If you want to call dont call before 5pm.




Why is there a kid on a… never mind. And finally, we bring you this jewel, sent our way via Stephanie Heinsons:

Thoroughbred Horse — $1500 (West Grove, PA)

“I have a great tb horse he’s right off the track. He is started over jumps and can be any kind of horse u want him to be he does to please you. I’m getting rid of him because I don’t have time for him between school and work he’s just sitting in a field wasting away when he has so much potential. He is sound. He’s a bay 5yrs old and he’s 17hands. Call/text 555-555-5555. website:”


Definitely NOT an OTTB. That ad has since been flagged for removal and not surprisingly, since Jackson’s Horse Farm is a Hanoverian breeding operation in Boston, Mass. and I seriously doubt they had anything at all to do with the ad.

Readers, if you stumble across a great horsey classified ad in your Internet wanderings, we want to see it! Email the link to [email protected].
