    Arrow Hey Morganshow? heads up to anyone actually.

    I didn't get to comment to your other post.

    I wanted to put out there that your Friesian ad is a scam.

    There are tons of Friesian scam ads all over horse sale webpages. From Dreamhorse to HorseTopia.

    When you find a "free for adoption" 6 year old gelding that does barrels and dressage it's fake.

    That horse would cost you 20,000 easy.

    Please be careful. These scammers are nice, they reply back. Tell you how amazing the Friesian they have is. Then they begin asking for bank numbers, money transfers and stuff. So they can "pay shipping" to bring this imposisbly good find to you.

    They won't, there is no amazing barrel racing Friesian gelding imported from Holland that is regsitered with FHANA waiting for you.

    Just a scammer with your money.

    They use my photos a lot, and I am often e-mailed letting me know. The "friesian" community of the internet reports these constantly. They are fake.

    A yearly Friesian might cost you 6,000. A broke to ride Friesian with training is going to be average of ten grand and up.

    Don't fall for it, and don't get your hopes up. It's such a bummer. I just wanted to let you and anyone who reads this know.

    I have a friend that has a friesian cross (I think they call it a "heavy hunter"). I remember when she was searching, in this area, IN UTERO they were already priced at 6,000 - 7,500. That is very interesting about the false ads on the friesians. Kind of scary.

    Hah here is the ad. I do beilve also that the person is trying to screw me over. I emailed her and she said that she lived in Africa and that it would be $850 to ship the horse. Africans don't (obviously) have alot of money, so mabey she is trying to get the money, and there probably isnt even a horse, she is trying to get money outta me.

    For a while there were literally hundreds of them on Horsetopia. You'd type in Friesian and come up with sixty pages of fake scam ads.


    Most of them went away when Horsetopia banned the entire country the ad's originated out of. Drastic but they had to do it.

    Now they are moving to other sites. It's really sad but a lot of people are fall for it.

    They use famous horses sometimes and that makes me laugh. I've seen a fake ad using a photo of Nanning. Everyone in the Friesian world knows Nanning. They had him listed as a barrel racing 10 year old mare.

    It's sad, but I don't want people to fall for it! Friesians are a rare breed and they are expensive and nine and a half times out of ten those free ads or those super massive cheap ads are fake as fake can be.

    We (Trails End Ranch) has a Friesian Clyde cross for sale, he is six thousend.

    Proof of what? That it's fake?

    It's a scam. It's not real. The person is going to try and get you to wire them money. Once you wire them money they will vanish.

    It's not real.

    A five year old 14hh gelding? A Friesian?

    No, not even an old style Baroque Friesian is going to be that small.


    "Lulu" the gelding?


    Fridse 423 Sport is in The USA, mothers father is Tsjerk 328 Preferent x Oltman 317 x Jakob 302 Sport!! Lulu comes out of a great blood and mother line!!he is a well bred Hanoverian

    If Lulu's sire is Fridse then Lulu the gelding should be costing you thousends upon thousands.

    Fridse is only six. He doesn't have any foals this old yet I would think. I believe Fridse is six. I know he's the youngest stallion to make sport.

    Notice they then say he's a well bred Hanoverian? That's a totally different breed.

    They don't speak English and just pull bits and pieces from other ads to make up their scam.

    LMAO are you serious?! Need to pay attention in history class dear, not all Africans live in Ethiopia...their version of "wealthy" may not be the same as ours, but there ARE many well off Africans.

    *shakes head*

    Good post in total though, there are ALOT of people that don't know/aren't aware of the scammers out there. I had SO many emails from scammers when I was selling my ponies, I thought they only applied to purchasing horses...not so much. Kinda silly how many people fall for it too...
