Why is she mad at me???

So the Barngoddess1 is mad at me this evening. I haven't figured out why yet.

Maybe has something to do with the ads I have on Craig's List and my response to emails sent in reply to the ads.

So I let everyone out there in never-never land decide.......
was I wrong, or just having fun, or whatever.

Here is the ad from Craig's List.

Reply to: [Errors when replying to ads?]

A 5/8 scale WORKING stagecoach, set up for miniature horses or mules in the range of 35 to 37 inches tall.

Can be pulled with a team of two, or add two more for a four up hitch.

Has the works:
Hydraulic brakes on rear wheels
Two team poles, with eveners
Window flaps that roll down
Back boot with cover

Has taken first every time it was in a parade or show.

This ad is for the stagecoach only, the team and harness have been sold.

Email to take a look at it.

Due to scammers, I am hesitant to spend time on the phone or the computer describing it or sending a "whole bunch of photos". Come take a look.

Scammers, if you want to sell for me, give me $5000 and you can sell it for me. All others interested, price is $3,500.00

Located just west of Marionville MO. If you don't know where Marionville is, go to and search for it.

Location: Marionville, MO

So the email I get today has just this in the text

"Where is it"


So being the good kind person I am, and being of the Gentleman Farmers blood, I answered with this:


It's in the garage.

Too nice to leave in the hay barn or stable.


So why am I in the dog house, I answered his question and gave him more info than he asked for.


I have the round pen on Craigs List also, just got an email with the same question from a different person


Where is it?


So my reply is:

It's in the middle field between the hay barn and the stable.

If someone sends me an email asking if it is still for sale, I think I will reply "yes" and leave it at that.

good by and have a good laugh on people out there.
