This one is from a UK website, Dragon Driving, via Halle T. who writes, “Glad to know what the owners think of their mini!”
Miniature horse, daft as a brush, comes to call like a dog.
Talwrn blood lines. Bay, no white, mealy mouth. Won’t grow any more, about 8hh now. Cannot deliver
Speaking of international ads, here’s a Canadian one from Melanie F. She notes, “I found this ad that made me giggle… It’s for a pony that can ‘cantor’ and do small jumps. However he’s not a show pony despite two pictures of him clearly at a show and with a ribbon.”
Broke to ride. Not a show pony. Not for beginner rider. Can cantor, and do small jumps. 12 years old. $2,500
This Craigslist poster isn’t beating around the bush. From Julie G., who writes, “Talk about to the point…”
Mare. 16 hands.
This horse can be “bread to make babies”:
I’m selling my horse because I can’t afford to keep her anymore. I am also moving and don’t have anywhere to move her to. She is trained in jumping, English and western pleasure, trail, racing, and dressage. She is nine years old and can be bread to make babies. I have all her papers and blood lines. She has her cogens. I’d like to sell her for 6000 but I will go lower. She is 16.2 hands tall
Shannon H. sent us these three gems:
Will trade hay for horses! I need some big stout mares for receps, for halter horses an race horses. Will take geldings also. Absolutely no studs have no use for them 1 round bale for one horse is the trade if your interested let me know

And one more via Emily L. that just actually makes us really sad — somebody go rescue this poor horse!
