Best of Craigslist, Third Edition

This photo has nothing to do with this post, but I’m sure you can find a LLAMAPILLAR for sale somewhere on Craigslist. 
What’s the woolly worm weather prediction on this one?

Some things in life are forever certain: death, taxes, disappointing dressage scores, and stupid people trying to sell horses.  Once again my Craigslist storage bin is full of the ridiculousness that you all crave.  Here you go, dear readers, enjoy the feeling of superiority while it lasts.

————————- 

In this grand World Wide Web invented by Al Gore, there happens a unique, bizarre bazaar phenomenon of Craigslist.  Part eBay, part flea market, part redneck yard sale, Craigslist is a free-for-all classified site where good deals can be found in any category from cars to dishwashers to llamas.  It’s like treasure hunting from your keyboard, and you never quite know what you’ll find.  Craigslist frequently has a few equine-related listings; the quality and content of which may vary widely.  Thus, for your entertainment, we now bring you THE BEST OF CRAIGSLIST

 

Today’s theme: Female horses under 4 years of age.

 

These are ACTUAL listings… you can’t make this stuff up!

  • Obviously this guy isn’t one to waste words.  Or commas, or periods.  In addition to “filley” (is that French?), “paster,” and incorrect version of “too,” he is hereby issued a level 3 citation from the Internet Grammar Police.

  • Tennessee Walkers from Philadelphia?  Are you sure?  There are some creative naming opportunities though, with the cross of Black Thunder and Peachy Stride.  Perhaps…It’s Raining Peaches?    Surely you readers can suggest better….[comments!]

Little Paint Philly – $500 (Casey county)


 

I HAVE A LITTLE PHILLY FOR SALE SHE WILL BE 2 YEARS OLD IN MAY, THE PHILLY’S MOM WAS A WALKING PONY, THE PONY’S DAD WAS A REGISTERED TWH PAINT. HER SIZE IS IN BETWEEN A HORSE AND PONY. SHE IS VERY GENTLE, I AM ASKING $500.00 FIRM, IF INTERESTED GIVE ME A CALL (606)787-7014 (SERIOUS CALLS ONLY PLEASE) THANKS

  • Well, despite the broken Caps Lock key, I will give this poster credit for use of complete phrases, including commas and even periods.  Once again, we have a Philadelphian equid, most likely of the gaited variety.  (Nothing against the gaited lifestyle, how you walk is your business.)  I’m not really sure what comes between a horse and a pony though…?  Is there a mysterious portal between 14.2 and 14.3 that I’ve never discovered?

Reduced Parelli started filly-Mia – $500 (Richmond)


 

Serious inquires only, no boot kickers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Parelli started horse for sale.  I do beleive Mia is a Left-Brain Introvert and at times shows a bit of an Extrovert side. If you don’t know what this is I recomend you go to the parelli website and look up horsanality under horse training, it describes her perfectly. She is very confedent horse, during our training it only took her a few trys to confadently cross a teeter toter, cross huge tractor tires, cross platforms, over logs through tarps, she loads well in the trailer, ties well, loves to splash in water, don’t know about baths because where she has been staying we have had to haul water in and out. She is to go to a great home ONLY, the right person will have a lot of horse exsp. and a lot of natural horse exsp. Her biggest prob right now, is unless you prov to her that you are going to be a better leader then her, she will try to be dominent. I will not lie to you, I will tell you every flaw she has, it is just so important that she go to a good home, I don’t want her to be ruined with some idiot, she does great with natuaral, so I want her to stay with it, she is around 21 months and stands 14hands tall I will have aplication for reg to be sure.  I prefer to be contacted through e-mail at first, I have a 2 yr old son, and if you call I can’t garentee that I will have time to talk then. We are moving to Fl in about 3 wks, and I have a 30 old gelding I have to take too, so can’t afford to take both. Thank you for your interest, must be to a good home!

  • Mama Mia.  My spell-check is lit up with red underlines all over this listing.  Internet Grammar Police has confiscated her keyboard.  Beyond that…I’m frankly scared.  Perhaps I need an expert in “horseanality” (that reads a little dirty, doesn’t it?) to examine my own animal and determine why my horse will not complete a dog agility course.   Teeter-totters?  Really??  So that’s what I’ve been missing…how ’bout no.  Keep your carrot stick to yourself, thanks.
