Dark Bay Appendix Quarterhorse Weanling
“Johnny is a weanling.He is halterbroke and leads.Current on deworming.Likes to be scratched.Has nice straight legs and good conformation.Johnny will make a nice barrel,jumping,endurance or trail prospect.” $200
Johnny needs a new freaking halter. That thing is choking him! And what is that on his belly?!
A weanling belly is one thing. It looks more like this:
(Coincidentally this horse is for sale by the same people as those selling Johnny’s but we’ll get to him in a minute.)
Back to Johnny. Here’s what comes to mind when we see that wormy belly of his:
Here’s hoping all that is wrong with that belly is worms! The ad stipulates that Johnny is “current on deworming”… so does that mean you just shoved some paste down his throat a day or two prior to writing the ad? Because it doesn’t look like he’s been on a proper worming schedule – which anyone breeding a horse should be aware of. Ideally Johnny (and all foals) should start their deworming schedule around 6-8 weeks of age and should continue to be wormed approximately every 2 months (at least during the warmer months) – unlike mature horses, which are typically wormed every 3 months.
Ok, back to Red.
“Red is a grade weanling colt.He is halterbroke,leads,ties and has been trailered.Current on deworming.Has a laid back personality and gets along with others.Loves his oats.Red would make a good working ranch colt and should have some cow sense.With bloodlines like DocLynx,DocOlena and Freckles Playboy to give him the edge.He is not reg and cannot be. “
His owner’s seem to be pretty proud of his bloodlines – and yet, you can’t register him. Hmm. There’s something wrong with this scenario… Although, not as wrong as having a Predator come out of your belly. Just sayin’…
(ps. don’t forget the alt text on the pics! ok, it’s not on all of them.. but still! take a look!)
