Re: horse sale ads...good home?

Hi Johnni

I put this on all my ads, it's a fair warning to people that I am going to
ask some pretty nosey personnel questions when they phone, it's also a
warning to the buyers with more money than brains that thing they can come
out and boast about how they plan to top ten at 10 rides this year on your 4
year old and then think you'll sell as they have more than your asking!!
