Best of Craigslist: ‘Quarter mile horse – $1000 (las cruces)’

Interesting photo choice. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg of this week’s edition of “Best of Craigslist.”

First, here’s the full ad, sent our way from Betsy M.:

Quarter mile horse – $1000 (las cruces)

Quarter mile horse for sale asking $1000 at Las Cruces NM must be able to pick up





Moving right along, here’s some classic Craigslist gender confusion. From our friend at Snarky Rider, who writes, “Stud or… huh?”

Mustang/Stallion Horse For Sale – $350 (Zanesville)

We have a 5-8 year old Stallion/ Mustang ( we believe) Gelding. He is very sweet natured and comes when called. He is handicapped yet not. His left eye is blind but that doesn’t bother him at all lol He is not broke which is why I am trying to re home him. We just moved into a new house and he came with the property. I am not old enough nor experienced to try and brake him. I want to find him someone who can love him for who he is. He also walks well by your side! Pics are of him. Text for more info



More gender confusion from Desi, who writes, “I’m hoping an ‘L’ mistakenly replaced an ‘R’ while specifying the gender of their horse… or maybe they’re just unclear on how breeding works;) Oh… and Haflinger is spelled wrong — that dang ‘L’ seems to get them every time!”
