Things you have been told when purchasing a horse.

I am in the market for a husband horse and some of the things I hear have blown my mind or just made me laugh out loud.

Question: What are you currently feeding him and what is the feed schedule?
Answer: Hay and grain....
Question: Ok....what kind of hay and grain?
Answer: I don't know, the kind you buy at the feed store. :smack head:

Question: Is your horse well trained and kid safe?
Answer: He is green broke and kid safe.

Question: Is he an easy keeper?
Answer: Yes, I feed him two and a half scoops of triple crown grain and three flakes of alfalfa in the morning and at night.

Question: When is the last time the horse was vetted?
Answer: Two weeks ago.
Question: Does the horse have any health issues?
Answer: She has cancer on her face and butt but the vet said its not a problem.

Question: How long have you had the horse?
Answer: Three weeks.
Question: Why are you selling the horse?
Answer: Because I have more rescues coming in. :bang head:

I am not kidding, I have actually gotten these answers in the last two months. Ugggg!!!!

Me: She is kind of thin, what have you been feeding her?
Seller: We have been trying to put weight on her. The other horse hogs all the hay so we have been giving her 2 or 3 cobs of corn per day.

I once called on an ad for more info, since all they said was "small horse for sale". First I asked if it was male or female. THEY WEREN'T SURE! Fortunately it worked out that the one answering the phone(pre cell phone days) was not the one who put the ad in, but it took me at least 10 minutes to get that info. If they had put sex, height, and age in the ad, I would have been saved the aggravation of talking to that smart-aleck.

This is in the category of telling a joke and leave out the punch line. What breed is it now?

they said 'it used to race, it used to be a standardbred' and i didn't push the inquiry any further because my inner cheek had a tooth hole from giggle suppression.

I recall seeing an ad that said, "direct reins, so should go to someone with experience."

Gotcha, sometimes it is best to quit while you are ahead.
I am proud of you for not having a battle of wits with an unarmed opponent.

Ok so a bit different because I assumed.
I called in the year 2002 about an ad where a lady said she had a few horses for sale,told her I was looking for a GELDING,about 4.She said she had a really quiet 2 yr old.
I said that was too young but would look at him as I was going to be in the area. Well, when hubby and I get there we see the sad skinny two year old with a crooked front leg. This is in February. So we buy him to get him out of there and bring him home.
The next day I am rubbing him all over just to get the feel of him. When I rub his tummy he has a huge umbilical hernia, had not seen it due to the hair. I call her to say why was this not repaired when he was gelded. Her answer: He is not gelded he is a stud.....Ok so my fault as I assumed he was a gelding because I called about a gelding and she never said anything to the contrary,I tell her this and she said she would take him back.Yeah, right,like I will send him back there.
Long story short, we now had unexpected vet bills for a crypt gelding surgery and a hernia repair, but ended up with an amazing horse.
Sadly he passed away when he was only 12.
We miss you still Cowboy.

I have a new one. He was supposed to be a super broke point and go horse.
He tried to wipe me and my friend off at the gate on several occasions.
Me: he is a little gate sour.
Seller: he is not gate sour, he just knows you don't know how to ride.

Probably not best to insult people when you are trying to sell a horse. 😉
