Someone is trying to sell Rudolf on a horse sales website. For a million dollars.
Just another day at the office for Best of Craigslist. Here’s the ad, sent in by reader Haley:
On a quasi-related note, here’s one from Angel: “At least she had her monthly bath!”
But wait, there’s more! This one is from Stephanie: “Scary trailer, 3 horses packed in tight, speeds up to 80 mph on curvy mountain roads. What could go wrong?”
And this one, from Katie:
Also, this one:
From Jessica: “I saw this ad for a horse on the Facebook group ‘WI Horse & Tack Swap’ and immediately thought of sending to you guys. It is an ad for a horse for sale and the only picture included of the horse (other than a “group photo” where you can’t even tell what the horse looks like) is the horse lying on the ground with its eyes closed.”
From L: ” I love how this person selling this tack claims to be a professional horse trainer mostly dealing with ‘English, Dressage’ and has a ‘Swedish Warblood.’ Yep, a WARblood, not a WARMblood. I’m pretty sure this poster stole all of this tack, or bid on an abandoned storage locker that had a bunch of horse stuff in it. At least they researched a few brand-names. ‘People and horses who are physically or mentally challenged and most of all people or horses who are first time at everything.’ — now that just sounds plain terrifying.”
Have you bought a horse for someone you love as a Christmas present a horse but none of the tack yet?
Well maybe I can help you.
I am a professional horse trainer mostly dealing with English, Dressage. People and horses who are physically or mentally challenged and most of all people or horses who are first time at everything.
So once a year I put together complete packages for someone who loved the person they love but do not have everything that goes with the horse and they’re not sure how to go about it all without overspending on tack that might be bad quality or pay to much
What I offer you is this.
Before l say anymore I want you to know all my tack is of the best quality and taken very care of.
I offer you: Two saddles: Two halters ( one leather) and lead ropes :Two very expensive riding pads for under the saddles.: Two bridles, one being a bitless bride if you so desire: A choice of bits for the other bridle.:
A tack box filled with brushes,mane & tail comes, :hoof pick :shampoo and conditioner: Sweat scraper; a fly hood; books on training, etc: If your person is a size 7, then she will also receive a pair of exceptional show boots.
There is more to list but I must get back to train my wonderful Swedish Warblood.
I am not putting pictures up until I know how to tailor your present
I will though tell you the saddles Makers.
