In reply to someone going to look at a pony, their first ever horse purchase.

“Don’t buy the first one you see, unless you have seen others first”

😂😂
Made my day!
No one else seemed to find it funny though, all the replies were very indignant people who bought the first horse they saw and it was the greatest horse ever.

New winner - "has never bucked, reared, kicked or bitten". There's literally a photo of it rearing (with a rider on) in the advert.

Wanted: 7.5t lorry must be stalled for 3-4 horses and must have full living for 4. Nothing ancient please but no stupid prices either. must have a years plate, budget £5K
Depending on what they call ancient, they need a 1, 2 or a 3 between the £ and the 5 :D

Someone selling their Horse as they want something to compete at a higher level, ends the advert to say they will switch for a mare and foal. The next day advert goes up to say Horse still for sale as no time for Horses but would consider something that can go and compete at a higher level. Seems the advert has appeared several times since all different reasons and asking for different types of Horses in return. Weird.

This isn't horsey but I saw a sign at the weekend that really tickled me. It was at a little petting zoo and the entrance was down some steps....

"Disabled access avaalible. Please ask inside."

Although if anyone IS "gifting" tack, gift it to me. :eek:

I saw a very similar one the other. Lady asking for 2 cobs for her and a friend, maximum £1000 for the pair must come with tack etc. No other specifications/requirements, just 2 horses with tack please!

One appeared on my time line yesterday asking for a bombproof Shetland, including tack for free for their kids to play with. A field with a shelter to keep it in too is also required.

Some people are absolute jokers!

Corker the other day.
Nice warmblood/sporthorse - 4 years old, unbroken.
Offered on a 6 month loan due to owners pregnancy. With the caveat that loaner must be very experienced at breaking, bringing in and competing young horses.

I saw a post where the OP had 'ingeniously' stuck mint humbugs together, and built them round one of the hanging cylindrical likit holders.
It was deleted before I had a chance to comment, sadly!

Lol at the above. My horse excels at Lounging too.

On another note the person from the post just above who wants two horses for a grand including tack is back with a new reworded ad:

*** WANTED***
Project horses
From 14 and above
Cash waiting but low budget
Instant decision and able to deliver
Don’t mine quirks as Long as declared
3yr
Please inbox me details and pics
ALSO looking for tack as well

Best one so far today:

Stirrup leathers. 160cm. Never used. £90. BOUGHT 25 YEARS AGO.

What??
They probably think they're vintage!! Same principle as these ridiculous folk trying to flog C&A handbags on eBay for hundreds of pounds because they are '80's' chic :)

Do they not know I still have a C&A sweatshirt and LOADS of stuff from BHS, although that's still relatively new in my opinion.

Seen one recently that's more tragic than anything.

Girl trying to give away her old horse that has cancer, is lame and had other issues as well and got angry when people told her to put it down. Thankfully someone took the mare, kind of hope they put her down though to end her suffering.
