Here's the ad for the Friesian gelding/stallion... they don't know which he is:

Rodney is a beautiful, funny, willing,
Goofy 9 year old Friesian gelding. I have had him since he was 3 years
Old. When you first see him you hold your breath as he walks with
Confidence to you, his ears forward and delight in his eyes. He is the
Most personable stallion,with a great sense of humor, eager to be
Hugged and kissed and touched. Always a gentle horse first, he
Delights to see small humans and pets, His mane is down to his knees,
Thick and shiny and his incredible tail is usually dragging on the
Ground behind him as he prances. He represents all that is desirable
About the Friesian breed. He has three correct gaits, a ground
Covering canter that has been called by classical trainers *simply
Correct and in superb cadence*, and a lifted trot with natural
Suspension.. His walk is effortless, long sinewy strides and a natural
Over track He has been schooled in and knows movements such as half
Pass, leg yields, shoulder in and haunches in and starting the Spanish
Walk.Rodney possess a lovely work ethic- he enjoys all the excitement
Of grooming and saddling and always is a gentleman in any arena. He
Likes to jump and is quite athletic and light on his feet! He has
Never been ill or injured. As a coming 10 yr old he is ready to
Continue his education and could be your 1st level mount for the
Summer of 2009 with the ability and knowledge to move up if his rider
Is ready. This is truly a remarkable gelding who also is a voice command
Accepting gelding. He is very easy to collect, His is an excellent
Baby,you may
Come and collect or can be shipped.
From one states of the US to another ,
Rodney is registered with many different registries, FHANA, FSHR,
FHH, FOA (where he is an approved Silver gilding) TASHR and has his
Lifetime registration with the United States Dressage Federation.

Ya, I think scam. That is almost like a poem lol. I noticed that to, the mane down to his knees and the tail drags the ground????? I don't see that.
    03-17-2009, 05:21 PM
He's saying he'll gladly ship it free. Is there any way that I could safely give him an address to ship it to? Like, where could I say to send it without getting kidnapped? XD
    03-17-2009, 05:28 PM
No. It's a scam. I would stop responding to the emails immediately.
    03-17-2009, 05:35 PM
I think I might call. Though the phone adress doesn't match the California address
    03-17-2009, 05:39 PM
Then the scammer will have your phone number and be able to trace you.

Considering that 2 ads have exactly the same wording, less the horse name and age, and the picture doesn't match the description..... I'd say 99.9% it's a scam.

It's up to you, but you might endanger yourself.

hehe, it does sound like a poem.

I'm 99.9% sure this is a scam. The whole ad sounds waay to good to be true, and his tail and mane don't touch the ground. Plus the fact that it is the same as the friesian ad. I'd pass on this one, its not worth the risk...

I am sorry to say, but why on earth are you wasting your time with this? I am sorry but I don't find that horse to be that impressive. If you are looking for a horse, I am sure you can find others around you that just as good if not better. You are located in OK, so therefore I am sure you would be taking him sight-unseen, why not find a horse in OK that you can actually try out? That way, if you see him and don't like him you are not stuck with him. I think it is safe to say that Oklahoma is fairly large state, I am sure that you would be able to find another free horse that you can actually go and try out. I am not trying to bash you and if I come across that way I am sorry. I am just trying to point out that you could be taking a huge risk. Look what you already know, the phone does not match up and the ad for the Friesian is the same. If I were you would not even bothering wasting my time, however that is me. Good luck with whatever you end up doing.

I stopped emailing him. It's definitely a scam. His ad said he was in OK, but the phone number was in AL, and he says he's in California. Now he's trying to convince me to pay shipping. I told him I could not trust him, and now he's acting desperate saying that the shipping company is a third party and I pay to them not him.

Anyway, I've decided to look at another horse as a project that isn't trained. That's be much funner anyway.

Thanks for making me see straight. Sometimes I get so excited I ignore the HUGE signs. :/

Thanks, Bless the horse forum
