The perfect horse !

This ad was on Craigs list this morning. Now you know how I feel about people selling horses on Craigs list, but this is a new one on me!

"I am looking for my dream horse. I am looking for a black gelding or stallion with white sock and a white blaze. I am willing to pay for the right horse but not an outragious price. Prefer young and does not have to be broke. If you think you might have what I am looking please feel free to email! "

    This seems like a relatively intelligent person, minor spelling errors, mostly correct punctuation.

    But REALLY?

    Advertising for a horse ( stallion! WTF!) because of his COLOR!!!

    That is what makes a perfect horse in this yahoo's teeny mind!

    Either she, ( ya know it is a she don't ya?) is a youngster, or/and is confident in her ability to train ANY such Dream Horse' she finds, or she just don't care. My vote goes towards the latter.

    I wonder if she knows that Breyer has a DreamHorse for just about anyone?

    Hey! I wonder if this would work for men?

    " Looking for my perfect man, must have brown hair and brown eyes."

    This guy is a lot different than say...

    This guy.....

    or this guy.....

    or this guy....

    or this guy~

    Of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but choosing a horse by color is like choosing a house because you like a house with shutters.

    Unfortunately a lot of people I have tried to help buy a horse start out with the same request- and I paraphrase...
    "I want a insert favorite color here."

    I could go on, but I won't.

    Good luck Little Miss I Want A Black Stallion!

    You are going to need it.
