Best of Craigslist: ‘Pony – $450’

Description: “It is a male. We are taming him.” Um, OK. Many thanks to Savannah J. for the find — here’s a link to the ad.


Moving right along, here’s one from Laura J. who writes, “I found this while horse shopping. Apparently the barn goes with him. New owner must remove it tho, lol. This is probably the best ‘kit’ I have ever seen.”

Horse kit 18.2h Belgian, all tack, round pen ect. – $5000 (Quarryville)

I can no longer ride and would like to sell my horse and all his belongings to someone that would ride him so he wont be bored. I have a 16 or 17 year old 18.2 hands Belgian named Papa Pony. His run in barn with attached tack room, all his tack (as it was made especially for him), his round pen, electric fencing and water trough. He is not a plow horse, for trail riding only. Serious inquiries only, thank you. You will need a rollback to move his barn. He has gone 2 years with very little riding by others and will probably need a refresher in everything.




And another one, thoughtfully contributed by Andrea G.:

want to trade 2 crazy mini donkeys (Navasota)

These 2 donkeys have been the bane of my existence for the last 2 years. The male has gone after predators, pets and family alike. The female is the most irritable, difficult and ill mannered animal I have ever met. I also believe that she is bred.
Apparently, at some previous point, both were trained…to do what, who knows. The male is actually friendly and will come up for a pet…but he will turn into a devilish turning tornado at any moment. He will play with my Pyrenees…they chase each other and have even been spotted….ahem…letting the Pyrenees mount him. They’re the same size. I can’t even begin to explain nor do I want to think about it.
So, long story short, I want them gone….as soon as possible.
I am open to trades of some sorts… a go cart (working or not), a lathe, pullets, certain livestock, Caribbean vacation, 4 wheeler, dirt work, certain construction materials, a weight training machine, concrete work, figs for canning, bulk flagstone, etc… you get the idea.
Please hurry and call. They can’t wait to come live with you!!!


I don’t really understand how the photos tie in to this one, but nonetheless:

i buy sell trade horse ponies mules (anywhere)





M’kay. And, last but not least: this isn’t a Craigslist ad, but we somehow felt that it would still fit in with this post nicely. From Theresa F., who writes, “This horse trailer was in front of us at a stop light in South Bend, IN.  Funny thing is the bumper sticker says ‘I LOVE MY HORSE.’ Really?”


Wow. Readers, if you run across an “interesting” ad in your Internet wanderings, send it our way! Email the link to [email protected]. Who knows–maybe you’ll help connect a horse with a safe, loving home. Go Riding.
