Saw a very smart looking hunter being advertised for £10,000... possibly a bit steep but it wouldn't be far off that. Looked like it knew it's job well from the pictures. For sale as owner giving up hunting or something similar.

Someone had commented along the lines of "since you are giving up you and are not needing him, I'll give you £1000 and he'll have a hunting home" :lol: Erm... chancer much?
Not horse related.
OH has seen on one of the FB fishing groups. Someone was sorting late fathers fishing stuff and asked how much a couple of arty farty bits could cost. That bits brand new cost up to £800 and second hand still can fetch up to 400. First reply: "oh, they are pretty worthless, probably about 20 quid..."

OMFG! ‘Has anyone got a horse I can ride? I can’t commit to anything, but I really miss riding’
Someone posts a link to local riding establishments and the reply is ‘But they are so expensive, I’d much rather help someone out with there [sic] horse’

Of course, those dastardly riding establishments, with their well schooled horses, and insurance, and feed and hay, and staff, and, and, and... how dare they try to make a living. When I can let someone else carry all that cost with [there] own horse, for me to just turn up and ride, when I feel like it, for free.

Deep breaths...

Just seen an add looking for a field to rent/share for their pony.
They live in a town but want somewhere close to them, must within 30mins walk. They are happy to share & pay £20 week. Or could rent entire field for max £500 a year. And has to happen in next 3 weeks...
someone suggested grass livery but that’s too expensive...

Did I mention they live in a really posh area where grazing land would be hard to come by anyway?

Our local page seems to be awash at the moment with people posting at about 7pm looking for transport the next morning! And it seems to vary between going to the beach for a couple of hours and going out for the entire day ...

Just seen this,
'no I don't have any idea about breeding as I've never done it before ... my mare is a maiden mare so she hasn't done it either but my mare is a stunner and id like her to have a chance in life in being a mum to a foal and for my experience too ... my mare isn't just a horse she's my baby and I wouldn't do it if i didn't think she wasn't capable ... so unless you've got anything nice to say don't comment'

Argh. She had teased her mare with two stallions, and doesn't seen to be in season.

At least for some reason you dont get direct pms... at 10pm asking to transport their horse the next day when you dont run a transport company, and never have, and when you politely say no get a barrage of abuse. Must of been an enemy that told them I do horse transport?!

Surpised I havent seen this on here...
Rising 2 year old, broken ride and drive, needs plenty of strong riding to get it going. Just clipped and shod with good heavy shoes that will last a while.....

Do you think someone would swap for my retired Horse?

"Does anyone have a pony they want rid of or a pony going to waste and no one to ride it. We are looking for a cheap/free pony for my son who is 7 to learn on and start off with. Looking for About 12h or above. My family and I have experience with horse and could give a pony a very loving home. We are currently paying lessons for a hour a week and would like to have our own or one we can have access to daily/whenever we want to teach him. We also have a stable and field to keep a pony."

If anyone does have a free first pony, my son would love one too :D :D

Just seen an advert on one of the local horsey groups from someone looking for a yard for her 11 month old gelding. The picture that accompanied the add? Said 11 MONTH OLD with a saddle on his back.
I despair on times!

I didn't think that the stupidity of putting a saddle on an 11 month old horse could be trumped but boy was wrong!
They have now included a photo of a toddler sat in the saddle on the gelding's back!!!

You know I nearly replied saying this wasnt that cheeky and could be done for 1000-1500 but just as i was about to click submit I realised you typed £100 ... Yeah that's cheeky and ridiculous, lol!

If I knew how to copy a FB post & put it on here I would. Saw one today. Looking for a knowledgeable & experienced person to continue educating, breaking, bringing on & riding away a (very nice) young one as owner is a novice & doesn’t know enough to do this so wants someone else to train & school pony to be suitable for owner. This kind person will only have to pay £45 towards livery + £10 for insurance so only £55 per week though a contribution towards shoeing etc would be welcome.

Saw that one as well, although the advert has now gone. Some of the replies were interesting as well, including somebody telling them to put it in foal and let it carry on living as it was!

Just seen this gem on Preloved:

"I am looking for help a couple of days a week to look after my herd. Horse One is 22, Horse Two is 22, Horse Three is 2 and Horse Four is 2.

I have a busy couple of months coming up so am looking for someone to poo pick and help with yard activities. You can spend as many hours as you like brushing and cuddling the horses. I want someone who has past experience with horses".

Oh yes, when can I start? I'd love to look after your non-ridden horses for absolutely no personal gain what so ever!
