Vroom vroom baby!
4 year old Mustang stud. Bay, gentle, easy to catch, easy to load, will pasture breed, proven breeder have his colt on property. He would be a great project to break to ride this spring. He is very stout and likes to run. His work is finished with our mares and he is ready to come take care of yours! Call or text ### ### ####. Call or text, don’t check e-mail often.
OMGEEE! He’s easy to catch! Hold on! Let me pay you double! What’s that you say? He pasture breeds! I have been searching all over for a stud that will willingly mount mares while pastured together. And he has experience breeding? BONUS! I’ve always wanted a 4 year old stud with a colt already on the ground…
I would literally rather breed my (imaginary) mare to this:
I really hope it’s just the photo but I suspect that’s not it; either way, check out the stud’s knees. The first picture has a better view of them – it’s as if his forelegs are bowed towards the front. What is up with that? How does that even happen? Did it happen? Am I imagining things? It wouldn’t be the first time – oh look, a dancing bear! oooh shiny.
Wait a minute – this isn’t another instance of my own personal insanity playing games with my mind (such as soccer), this is an instance where some idiot thinks that because a horse has testicles it’s worth more. This horse is over at the knees, a conformational flaw that will lead to his structural breakdown much sooner than a well conformed horse. There’s a quick article on this blog on this conformational faux pas.
This stud’s major selling feature? He likes to run! YIPPEE! No idea if he likes to run with a rider on his back but that’s ok! Leaves some mystery! I like a little excitement in my life!
I’m sorry. I can’t keep this up anymore. You mindless f*$*tards. Get a clue! Geld the little beast, get rid of the barbed wire and put some damned training on him! (I feel like I’ve said this before…) Why, oh why, did you breed him to your mares? If you have money for more horses then why aren’t you keeping this one? Honestly, what’s the rationale for creating copies of those horrendous knees, only to sell the original? Anyone? Quick! Before my head explodes!
What’s one of our favorite mantras here at Snarky Rider? ‘THANK GAWD FOR GELDING!’
Now if only people would actually do so…
