“Big and leggy this little filly is already an eye catching althletic mover. Her unique color and blue grey eyes will make her a show stopper catch. She has smooth fluid movements and will be a pleasure to ride. Great foundation breeding. If she doesnt sell I will kep her for a performance prospect. Last pic is her dam. Will take $2000 for the package. check out her pedigree http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/se+sassattitude“
My letter to the Craigslist seller:
Why is this filly being ridden! She is far too young to have ANYONE even sitting on her! You’re likely damaging her developing musculoskeletal structure which will cause permanent changes and damages that will affect her the rest of her life. Not to mention you’re endangering your child. But fear not, what you’re doing is undoubtedly considered acceptable by your Craigslist posting brethren. Idiocy like this creates fodder for the auctions and slaughterhouses. Congratulations on contributing to the longevity of an industry that causes the pain and suffering of horses.
Considering the ad, I thought I was incredibly nice.
