Lammi. It is laminitis! Hardly hard to say, is it? You don't say colli, or navi, so why Lammi? Grrr...

Scrooge chased after an empty bin lorry and tried to get in it.... i think that means he likes it... i think.... hates cars tho... weird horse

Oh and I reffer to our boys ( 2x percherons, babrant/boulanaise, 3/4 shire) as ponys.... usually as a joke when i'm being soppy but i do it alot... every now and then a visitor thinks they are acctually ponies because of it...

This is making me really think how I could actually ever word future adverts without putting pratically everyone off somehow!

Reluctant sale/sad sale
If you are so reluctant or sad to sell, dont do it!

[/ QUOTE ]

Nope totally disagree with this...

I am going to be fiding Ellie a new how soon- I am reluctant and it will be very sad. It will break my heart but I know that it is best- she isnt up to what I want to do. I want to event- she wants to do flat showing....

Finances- in case you haven't noticed keeping a horse has become pretty darn expensive.

Sometimes its not quite so simple as "just dont sell it then"

green- never seen a green horse!

I prefer "uneducated" or "young"

UncleJr has obviously picked it up from the forum as well because I heard him say it in Spanish, when in fact an inexperienced horse is described as 'new'.

my mum hates it when my instructor says "that horse has a nice pop on it".
Mum then says "She doesn't have a nice pop, if she did she would be in a cereal box with snap and crackle!"

"type of horse hard to get"

"rarely comes on the market" why? because it prefers internet shopping??

"bombproof" until a car passes it. then it explodes like a bomb!

Horse running around on the forehand with head in the air

"Look how forward it is"

Also people trying to tell you to "ride it forward" i.e. give it a boot.

I also hate "nice person" and "po/ponio"

Yes ..... using the word 'Lami' instead of Laminitis ..... it makes it sounds quite a nice condition, when it isn't

My personal hate is horses described as 'Blue and White', its grey and white luv.

People who say their grey is Blue roan when its just grey.

Geldings described as having fantastic breeding that are for sale with that as their best attribute, they're geldings, they're not gonna pass their breeding on anytime soon.

The ultimate (bad) advert according to HHo.
grin.gif



Stunning 14year 16hh Pinto competition horse, with the potential to go far. IT has off the floor paces that are to die for and an utter jumping machine! Never stops, 110% at all times whilst competing. Jumps Anything! This horse could go all the way.
Started life with Natural Horsemanship and would prefer NH home.
Never had a case of lammi in it's life. We have practiced barefoot trimming with him.
Has manners to burn in and out of the stable. Never throws its toys out of the pram.
A true mothers dream for a young rider.
It has phenomenal breeding lines, a rare chance to buy such good quality, and would equally suit a mother and daughter share.
Likes traffic, totally bombproof. Armchair ride!
This is a truly honest horse and nice person and good Christian that works on the bit, is very well schooled, and is good to hack always, even with very limited hacking available.
This pony is going to take the right rider to the top. Would affiliate easily.
Very sad and reluctant sale of ponio.
This type of horse rarely comes on the market and is hard to get.

Home more important than price so only £15,000


ETS: For sale through no fault of its own.

There's no apostrophe in its life...
Is it a gelding? Would make the breeding so much more relevant

Oh, and you've not said anything about its 'confirmation'

Stunning 14year 16hh Gelding. Pinto competition horse with the potential to go far.
Would have kept whole and used as a stallion if it wasn't for his pasterns that were probably the reasons for his tendon injury *Fully Healed and will not effect the horse in anyway* Passed. 5 stage vetting ten years ago.

'For sale through no fault of his own'. As opposed to a horse demanding to be sold as it is striking out for indepenence, presumably.

[/ QUOTE ]

This calls for a whole new advert - opposites.

Horse for sale absolutely through its own fault, it is an absolute git. About 60% reliable, I should say, with 1.5 reasonable paces. Manners to smoulder, most of them bad.
