Unfortunately that was the first and last good thing we had to say about this ad. From left to right, in photo number one we have Mr. Adorable lying in a bed of cozy grass with a nylon halter on surrounded by evil, malicious barbed wire. What the hell are they thinking with that fencing? With having done little to no research, we can tell you with 100% certainty that, in the long run, barbed wire is not a cheaper fencing option! Vet bills are astronomical! And for those of you who don’t own a horse here’ s a little tip: if a horse can hurt itself on something, it will! It’s like Murphy’s Law. Here’s another tip (we’re just full of ’em today) the barbs of the barbed wire can actually break off in any owies the horse inflicts upon itself, causing infection, preventing the wound from healing properly and ultimately making your vet reopen the wound and start from scratch! (after xray’s, of course)
Bottom left: is it just us or is that a garage with cross-ties? Seriously, that ceiling looks to be about 6 inches above the horn of the saddle! And is that a work bench in behind Mr. Adorable? There’s something on top of it… fingers crossed it isn’t some sort of saw.
Bottom right: Now, I (DE) don’t like making fun of people’s weight because, well, I ain’t exactly skinny – the fat fairy visits me. Frequently. Bitch. However, when you’re on a draft horse, even a young one, and you manage to dwarf it, it’s time to reevaluate some of your life choices (I say as I head straight for the treadmill…). Also, and I hate to say this, but the rider should be considering the fact that this horse is only 3 and perhaps you shouldn’t be stressing his joints quite so much… Am I a horrible person? There are tons of horses I won’t get on because of my weight… Not sure I’d be willing to subject a 3 year old to hauling me around. ‘Nuff said.
