“(Quarter Horse people) like big butts and I cannot lie” – teeheeee Thanks a lot, Sir Mix-a-lot! (watch the video and thank me later lol)
QH peeps, please explain it to me! Because I truly don’t understand why this is the current breed ideal! Functionally speaking these horses are practically useless!
Functionally speaking, this horse is useless. Seriously, she’s 10 and is “broke, but really broodmare sound-gets a litte stiff”. Excuse me while I go get something else that’s a little stiff – I mean a drink! Jeez! Get your minds out of the gutter 😉
“I can’t tell if it’s the hugeness of her body that makes her look like she’s standing on tooth picks or not, but either way, it looks like two (possibly three) different horses all on one massive body. On top of all that, she is of course experiencing what the owner refers to as “stiffness” so she’s not ridable. Oh and guess what? She’s only ten. But of course, she’s a superior halter horse so you could breed her and they are selling her for the low, low price of 1200. Yes, you too could have yourself a cow on toothpicks and then have more tiny cows on toothpicks. What a deal!!”
That’s from Emily, who emailed us about this ad from Dreamhorse. Maybe it’s just Emily and I, but this horse sure ain’t our dream!
You know what IS my dream? TRUTH IN ADVERTISING! Hmm let’s see what a google search for “”Vanilla Money” horse” returned, shall we?
Apparently ‘Vanna’ was for sale back in 2007 for $6000! Back then, not only was she worth more but she was apparently born in 2004! See ad here. Apparently her birth date has since changed – although not for the better. Psst! Note to seller! If you’re going to lie about your horse’s age, make it younger than it is,not older!
The one thing Vanna has going for her? According to the seller she’s HYPP NN (given that he’s already lied about her age I’d get that double checked!) but she does have that oh so desirable HYPP NH look. *facepalm*
Updated this last part – I was wrong about the coloring. Had never heard of “medicine hat” before. Thanks to Whitney for her comment on color genetics 🙂
