The best worst column is back! Keep sending us your terrible, horrible, no good, very bad ads.
Best of Craigslist (and Facebook, and equine advertising sites … we don’t discriminate) is a constant treasure trove of the fascinating, the bizarre and the tragically misspelled. We gather the best (and worst) that the internet has to offer and package it up in one neat post for your reading enjoyment.
While it’s fun to giggle at classically atrocious spelling and ridiculous photos, we also remind readers that sometimes Best of Craigslist can lead to fairytale endings as well — where we can, we try to link to the original ad so interested readers can contact the seller.
We’ll kick off our latest collection with this fellow submitted by Sarah — someone please give this guy a good home!
We have a beautiful paint quarter horse for sale – easy keeper – good on the ground – trailers – stands for farrier . You can ride him with a halter and twine. Very easy rider. A bit spunky
We do not have the proper fencing to keep him. Nor do we have the time / working 12hrs 7 days
$4000.00 he would be a perfect show or compition horse. He is fast.
This next ad, submitted by Julie, clearly took the advice “keep it brief” to heart… maybe a little too well. (Also, we hope the guy in the background is not included in the offer.)
Our final ad — short and sweet this week, folks — is also from Julie: “… I think they mean hands? Honestly I’m not sure.”
Beautiful 19 rands dark bay Thoroughbred gelding for sale to a good home. 15 years old. Feeding carrots, vitamins and good hey everyday. Great healthy trail horse. Need an experience rider. Have to see in person.
Readers, if you run across an “interesting” ad in your Internet wanderings, send it our way! Email the link to [email protected]. Who knows – maybe you’ll help connect a horse with a safe, loving home. Go Riding.
