Best of Craigslist: Outstanding Photography Edition

Taking a great sales photo is a special art form that requires practice to perfect. These sellers…well, let’s just say they went the candid route.


From Christina: “Some of the pics in this ad are funny…but you shouldn’t miss the one at the end with the little fairy!”


From Megan: “Need a picnic buddy?”

And to wrap up our collection, we’ll just put this one from Jenna right here: “Best saddle ad EVER!”

skip saddle

Looking to re-home our saddle, Skip. With a really pretty floral and basket weave coat pattern no one “Skips” over this one. He came from RS Saddlery, breed is ranch, but mixed with a training tree and a reining seat. (Kind of a mutt, but best of all worlds.) We rescued him a few months ago but he isn’t fitting in with all of our family members, especially the horse. He’d do best in a household with a 7″ gullet, FQHB horse and a 15.5″ (16″) seat person. Up to date on all shots, no bite history. A really great family saddle and really cute, too. Tucks in nicely at night and looks adorable snuggled in a blanket. Skip prefers to be an inside saddle so he doesn’t get wet but really enjoys long walks, trots, and lopes indoors and outdoors. Doesn’t tug at the leash or even bite your hand when you give him treats. He’s really healthy, recently groomed and real flexible. A nice sized saddle, not too big but not an ankle-biter either. Doesn’t chew, bark, or scare children. Put a leash on him and it’s a real conversation starter. Looking to meet members of the opposite sex? Walking Skip is sure to get you noticed! Skip is totally calm around tarps, ropes, cats, etc.Makes an excellent shelf for your Western items if you’re not in the market for a saddle. Doesn’t even chase squirrels and completely husband safe. Good with other saddles. Knows his commands, especially good at sit and stay. He’s approximately 10 but if you convert saddle years to people years that’s like 30. He’s in the prime of his life, just looking to settle down with a family and build up his career. Can paint a nice watercolor, do light housework, even cook. You can braid his saddle strings into a very fashionable tail style. Vices include boot shopping (like we all can’t relate there) and enjoying Mardi Gras. He also does enjoy dressing up for Halloween. Not registered, but tack shop-checked and no health problems. Looks damn sharp in a hat. To a good home only, re-homing fee is $600 (don’t want him to go to a fighting ring!) plus transport costs. I’ve attached some pics of Skip doing typical saddle-y stuff to prove all the claims I’ve made above. If you or anyone you know is willing to open your heart to a sweet saddle just trying to get a new start at life please contact me!

***We in no way guarantee that skip can paint, cook, clean, walk dogs, or do anything besides sit on a horse and be ridden in. Please do not let Skip use the oven or leave him in charge of your dog. Also he can’t be trusted alone in New Orleans.
