If you click on the ad picture, and compare it to the ad text, you'll find it doesn't exactly match up - when I took the screenshot of the ad, it said what the screen shot said, but I neglected to copy the text into a text doc like normal. The ad was still up, but the ad text had changed some since, so thats what I copied over to here.
He has just too many stallions right now.
How many is too many? How many did he have to START WITH? (Cause there's another ad of his you'll see here in a sec.) I don't get the mentality that a horse is ok to breed at 2, but NOT ok to ride at 2. I think in this case it might have something to do with .... dare I say it.... Penis Envy?
Seriously. LOOK at these pictures.
This guy has at MINIMUM 2 Clyde Stallions AND a FRIESIAN stallion, and he's taking pictures in front of what looks to be a HOUSE on the side of the road in the driveway???
Does this picture make ANY sense to you?
Friesians are highly expensive - and if this guy doesn't put his Friesian stallion through the inspection process before breeding, the registry WILL kick his horse out of the studbook. They tend to NOT like their horses breeding without their permissions, because of the high inbreeding coefficient within the Friesian breed.
But back to the Clydesdale. The horse isn't THAT bad. Stallion quality? I don't know enough about the drafties to tell... but at first glance, probably not. Or at least let him fill out some before deciding whether or not he's worthy of being bred.
Its the decision to take the pictures in a freaking driveway in front of his house, in an area that looks like there is nothing 'horsey' about the area.
Here's the other ad...
HAVE A HUGE CLYDESDALE STALLION, HE LOADS WITH EASE, LEADS ON A LEAD ROPE, GENTLE WITH MARES, ONLY GETTING RID OF BECAUSE I HAVE TOO MANY STALLIONS, HE GETS ALONE WITH MY OTHER STALLIONS, BUT IM GOING TO JUST KEEP MY FREISIAN STALLION, AND ONE OF MY OTHER CLYDESDALE STALLIONS. THIS HORSE IS A HUGE HORSE, BUT HE IS GENTLE AS CAN BE FOR A STALLION, HE IS WORKED WITH EVERDAY, HES AN EASY KEEPER, WOULD MAKE SOME WONDERFUL COLTS FOR SOMEBODY. CALL AND MAKE ME AN OFFER, WILL ALSO CONSIDER TRADES. CALL OR TEXT 713---0502
At least these pictures are a teeny bit better... kinda ...
If blurry is better than ghetto I guess.
If you are looking for something amusing to look at over the holiday weekend online, you have to check this blog out.
The blog focuses on some of the more anatomically incorrect horse toys, sculptures, and just plain WTF? horse-ish ideas humanity has come up with over the years. Some are intended, some were NOT, but most are pretty darn funny. The posts are short, sweet, and to the point, and you can actually read through the back posts of the blog from the last few years really fast. Great for a few hour's entertainment for sure!
