The livestock (show) industry is a tough one- if you've never had anything worth a damn you might as well go on the internet and rundown everybody you can.

As far as I know, a very strange man wanted to do terrible, unspeakable things to that poor little dude.

We sell quite a few things on Craigslist and we don't include our phone number in the ad. We've had alot of success selling all kinds of stuff and have seen some good cattle. Think you need to screen customers, and email responses rather than phone number works for us.

I have had several warnings from horse rescue groups as well about horses placed on CL. Kill buyers watch all the time for free/ cheap horses.
Lots of weird/cruel people out there. Be careful!!!

Plenty of weirdos out there, depending on your locale, craigslist gets a ton of attention.

Plan on getting scam emails immediately after you have it listed as well as phone calls, but in the end, free is free.
