#1: Snow white “except the mud” pony mare” named French Fry for the win.
“French Fry” is a snow white “except the mud” pony mare that is just the pony for them little cowboys and cowgirls that need bombproof and puppy dog gentle. She does ride on her own without leadline and is just one step at a time slow poke when she does. She has been a party pony and used on a pony carousel. She’s perfectly safe as a backyard pony and one they can spend hours playing with even if they are not riding her. They can climb on her over her under her all the things a little one is gonna do till they learn better. She is 12 hands tall and 13 yrs old. We are asking $550 for French Fry and $250 for the brand new saddle that is on her in the video. It is a 12 inch buckskin stiched American made saddle and been on pony one time. Located at Gilmer Tx.
#2: The pony is cute, but the kid forced against his will to hold him? Priceless.
#3: They’ll “throw in a Jack Ass for free!”
Grade Horse, Walking Horse. Hasn’t been rode much in the last year. We have too many and one has to go! Easy catch, very gentle. We will even throw in a Jack Ass for free! Up to date on all shots, coggins, worming. Hoofs trimmed every six weeks. We call him Buddy Redford! Serious inquires only Email me if interested.
#4: Maybe healthy, maybe not?! Maybe leadline broke, maybe not?! Maybe comes with tack, maybe not?! You should buy this pony, or maybe not?!
#5: Another truly Craigstlist-y Craigslist sales photo.
9 year old register miniature bay gelding. Great disposition with lots of personality. 38″ tall. Can be ridden. No kick bite or buck. Very nice little horse for kids. Has had some experience driving, but is not yet a finished carting horse.
#6. Imagine the look on your horse-crazy child’s face when you tell her you got her a pony and then…
#7. “Rode many a kid…”
