Best of Craigslist: ‘Spelling Is Hard’ Edition

This week on Best of Craigslist:  a “philly,” a “male filly,” a couple “1/4 horses,” a horse that knows how to “laydowns” and “sitts,” a “true horse whisper” and much, much more!




From Megan: “Can’t resist that typo!”



From Jacklyn: “I am not sure what a ‘male filly’ is…. ” Answer: it’s something that only exists on Craigslist.


1 and 3 month female filly horse leads good and trailers well also have a year old male filly also $500 (will trade for a older green horse)


From April: “I want to email and ask what the other 3/4ths is.” What I want to know is, do two 1/4 horses make a 1/2? And also, people, these sales photos of your horses with their head in a trough are not flattering.


I’m selling two horses, one is a three yr old 1/4’r un-broken Stallion & the Other’s 8 yr old 1/4 mare. I cant take care of them anymore. I can trade them for goats, sheep, farm equipment or any other farm items. These are good healthy horses. The mare’s broken, she’s good with kids. You can contact me any time at five-one-two, 69four- 3420. my name is Abe. English or Spanish I dont care.

From Christina: “OK. The guy sitting on the sitting horse. And it bowls…?”


Horse Azteca half quarter horse half andalusian broke to ride.there nothing wrong with him know how to bowl laydowns sitts 14.3 hands tall . Selling as is small video on YouTube a starter friend riding him lino06271!

From Sara: These photos. I can’t.




From Megan: The first picture is great and reminds me of the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Horse, “Hello, I’d like to talk to you today about our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.”


From Jacq: “This horse whisperer has some of the worst grammar I think I’ve ever seen!”
