Best of Craigslist: ‘TWH WORLDS UGLIEST HORSE’

From the ad: “Butter is absolutely ugly as sin. He has a face only his mother could love.” Poor Butter.

Many thanks to Emily B. for the tip!

TWH WORLDS UGLIEST HORSE -*- – $277 (Science Hill, KY)

We have for sale a 15 year old unregistered Tennessee Walking Horse gelding. Butter is absolutely ugly as sin. He has a face only his mother could love. However, Butter is a broke cremello trail gelding that stands over 15 hands barefoot. This old horse has been there and done that and even knows a few tricks. Butter will even rear up on command! He has an excellent gait and a great temperament. Despite the fact that he is not very attractive, he is a great trail horse that is very gentle. If you want to be unique and not have a horse that looks like everyone else’s, but still maintain a good safe trail horse, Butter is your man. Just remember, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.





Butter, this one goes out to you from your friends at Horse Nation:


But wait, there’s more! From Tamara R., who writes, “This may not be Craigslist, but leave it to Florida to have the weird stuff. Example A: Uh, where’s the throat latch?”



And another — they say “broken”… hopefully they mean “broke”?

1 MARE + 1 Filly ONLY $325 *WON’T LAST!* – $325 (Sweetwater)

Mare and filly. The older horse is broken and the baby hasn’t been worked with. . .she is almost a year old. $325 rehoming for both.
