Best of Craigslist: Bad Ad Blowout Extravaganza

HN’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 Alicia E. who writes, “Here is a great ad that still makes me giggle when I read it.. hope you like it!”

Tri-colored paint horse (video included) – $800 (St petersburg)

Ezra is a 4 year old arabian/mustang paint, he stands at 14 hands. I have been training him myself, he is great to work with and my buddy. very sound I took him for a trail ride on the road two days after I broke him (the first time he has ever been ridden) we went by cars, barking dogs, not one thing bothered him. He is a lover, and will kiss your face and really great with our other animals too, he plays with the cows and the dogs run around him, it doesn’t bother him. He is a stallion, but you could never tell, if you gelded him he would probably sit in your lap. He is very sound and if for some reason something does spook him he doesn’t bolt. whenever I’m working out in the gym he comes in and hangs out with me. He is a great horse, the ONLY reason I am selling him is because he is just a tad to small for me, I need a bigger horse but can’t keep both otherwise I would NEVER sell him, I love this horse so If someone wants to give him a good home I will sell him to you $800 or will trade for cows, calves, bull (looking for angus bull calf) might consider other trades. please feel free to email, and or call/text me anytime at 727-729-1188. (Australian Saddle, pad, and bridle comes with him)


Key words: horse, cow, goat, pig, trailer, horse trailer, duck, chicken, paint, mustang, stallion, stud, pony miniature, mini, bull, calf, filly, colt, foal.
