Retired Geezer Selling a Horse? April 27, 2006

I found this yesterday in the local, free, classified newsletter. They usually have about five misspellings per page. In the fall, some joker always puts in the "pinenuts for sale, $5 per pound — deernuts, under a buck" joke.

This is verbatim: (http://horseshoetrader.net/tader1pdf/trader1.pdf)

FOR SALE, EXTREMELY well broken horse. Used to be 16 hands, now only 10 hands. Had to remove shoes so she could lift her feet. Good on flat or slight downgrade. Has been high centered on ant hill. Comes with custom made belly cart to avoid naval blisters. Back is sway – no need to buy a saddle. Used to do rodeo. Likes to watch them now. Good bloodlines: Days Gone Bye, Can't Remember Stuff, Kant Leave De Stable Anymore, Giddie Up Iz Gone. Good for kids and anorexic riders. Very sweet natured. Best horse on the market! Don't delay! Won't last much longer! Won't last long!

Sounds like my Dream Horse.
I got bucked off my Mule… twice in 10 minutes.
16 hands (almost 6 feet) is a long way to fall when you’re old.
