Reduced for Christmas!
Thank you to Kijiji, Canada’s very own Craigslist (not that they don’t have Craigslist, but apparently they felt they needed something wholly Canadian), and the concerned reader that sent us the following ad for us to snark on!
Do you know why stores reduce their prices before Christmas? It’s because they know they’re going to be selling more than normal, have purchased more stock to accommodate the increased numbers and have received a proportionately increased discount on said stock. So really, are the stores losing any money? NO! But the owner of the following horse clearly does not understand this basic economic concept and is offering her beeutyfull mare at half off the regular sale price for Christmas!
She had a Buckskin colt in 2010, foal by bay arabian.
Both stallion and 2010 colt are available for veiwing.
$2250 Bailey, and I retain the foal – Reduced to $1250 for Christmas
May trade/partial trade for tack, welsh or arabian mare/filly, TB
So, this person freely admits they don’t have time for this mare and yet they want to trade her for another questionably bred horse? Why? What exactly were they hoping to accomplish here? If you’re not happy with the horse, which you clearly aren’t, why are you breeding it? Oh, and for those of you following along at home, yup the ad does say this horse is only 4 years old and has already had a baby. No doubt passing along it’s thick throatlatch and short neck (can’t tell much about the legs from the photos) to the next generation. People like you should be weeded from the gene pool.
And now for our mantra:
