Best of Craigslist: ‘Red Roan Quarter Horse Gelding – $2500’

I’ve seen some pretty ridiculous horse-for-sale photos on Craigslist but this one takes the cake.

Here’s the rest of the ad, sent our way by reader Giorgia, who wryly observes, “There’s nothing more flattering than a urinating horse.”

And last but not least, one more from Melissa who writes, “This has several gems all in one great Facebook listing. Bad feed, bad ferrier, bad teeth, 23 (!!!) videos, one titled ‘my horse are assholes,’ upside down frame on a ‘dressage’ horse, and best of all, ‘have set a price but how much is he worth? Not that I will change my price but watch 23 videos and give me your opinion that I will not use.'”

Rule #1 of the Internet: Never, EVER ask random people for their opinions. Would love to see how that comment thread turned out….
