WTFriday - Big Grade Gelding

From The Best of Craigslist:

For Sale:
Big Grade Gelding, Been used as a pickup horse until he got hooked by a bull. Think he has a split personality, some days he's great, some days he's a real prick. No secrets here, you need to tranq him to shoe him or he will try and kick your head off. He has been used for branding, moving cows, ranch roping ect. And like I says, some days he's great, we have had beginner riders on him and they have done fine, I have ridden him in the hills or gathered on him and he was fine. He is not great to catch, although we have him turned out on 140 acres so he can leave if he wants, but in a smaller pen he is much better. He just needs someone that isn't going to take his shit on a regular basis. He needs to be taken and used. If you are looking for a horse that you can ride twice a year, well then this is not the horse for you. But if you use your horse as often as you change your pants then he will probably suit you perfect. We bought him with the intention of selling him and because we have more than enough horses he has gone to the bottom of the priority barrel. He is not a horse for the faint hearted. If you are handy and need a project or if you think you are handy and need to try and prove it.. I think he is about 11 years old. 15.3 hands. Answers to the name Dick. Oh, so he doesn't answer, that's just what I call him. $25oo obo.


  1. LMAO! Don't waste that seller's time if you want a cuddly pet. That was great.

  2. ROTFLOL! That made my day. Especially the end "Answers to the name Dick. Oh, so he doesn't answer, that's just what I call him." Haha

  3. Are you sure they did not screw up and add an extra zero accidentally? I can not believe anyone would think they could get $2500 for a horse matching that description. Cause I know I can find one that is registered and meets that description for under $1000.

  4. I was wondering about that price too! Maybe he'll knock a few hundred off to someone who seems serious. :)

    Too funny!
