Get me mah shears!
I was looking for sale ads the other day for free horses – the idea was to post a few free ads of decent horses with an outrageously priced sale ad and see if anyone could guess which was the horse owned by the people with their heads shoved up their ass. I may still do that but, for now, I’m stuck on the following sale ad brought to us by the letter “e” for equine.com.
|Foal Date||May 2008|
|Registrations||IAHA – Half-Arabian Horse Association ()|
|Temperament||5 (1=Bombproof, 10=Hot)|
“Show is a beautifully marked tall and elegant 3 year old colt. Very well bred with both sire and dam exhibiting classic Arabian type- liquid eyes, typey heads, beautiful necks and a wonderful laid back shoulder that make them a dream to ride. If this colt were “perfect”, he’d be pricey.
Show was born with oddly shaped back feet. My goal is to place him in a wonderful home with access to a talented farrier with the ability to work with him on a regular schedule to try to bring him to as close to “normal” as possible.
If you’re looking for a really neat horse and you’re willing to take the time to work with his feet, please contact me. Please note that I will require a contract and references – I have 3 years invested in him and do not want any harm to come to him.
If you are under the age of eighteen, please make sure you have parental permission before contacting me. They will need to provide references on your behalf.
Will add new photos as soon as the weather clears.
Step right up! That’s right! It’s a deal of a lifetime! You (yes YOU!) can own your very own half-Arabian x Pinto stallion! From now on everywhere you go people will whisper in awe, “what the fraggle rock was she thinking?”. [aside: if you follow us on Twitter you’ll get the fraggle rock comment 😉 ]
Oh, sorry, that’s my bad, I spelled “aww” wrong above – please go ahead and mentally fix that. Thanks.
WHO THE F*#% – errr, I mean, FRAGGLE ROCK – wants a STUD with fraggled up hind feet?
And I’m sorry but you have “3 years invested in him”? You can’t even afford to properly care for your horse! What exactly have you invested? The horse is in need of corrective farrier-ing and … hmm what was that other thing he needed? Hold on, let me think. Oh that’s right: GELDING!! Methinks you should cut your losses and accept the fact that he should NOT be bred and should be given to someone who will love him for the jumbled up mess he and his “oddly shaped” bad feet are. This is of course is assuming that the seller “invested” some time and did some basic training with him. We can only hope.
Moral of the story: Don’t try to pawn your mistakes off on other people and if you’re going to breed horses, at LEAST make sure you can properly care for them!
Sorry, guess I should have said “morals of the story”
