I had been looking at this horse as well, I'm thinking it's a scam......he's listed as being located in several different states. Pennsylvania, Ohio, and now Utah. Kinda sketchy.....

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Well it's because the owner lives in London, England! and the owner's mom lives in Utah! I don't know about buying over seas. What do you think?

Is he in the US or in London? If he's in London I'd say pass. Importing a horse is NOT cheap and you could get a pretty nice horse for the same price. If he's here in the US my first question would wonder why he's so cheap. While I don't *love* his hind end a warmblood that is talented and easy is not usually found for $1800. I don't care how much they care more about a loving home over price! That being said, if he was in my area I'd be checking him out.

Ya, I would go check him out if he was near me, but unfortunately he's in London. Oh well, there will be others. I need a "colony" anyway;)

Ya me too. I got a huge email about shipping and information about the flight for the horse and everything like I had already committed to buying the horse.

I would never buy a horse unless I could go see it myself!

I believe I've seen similar ad before (was mentioned either on my local forum or on Fugly Horse). It appears from time to time, but in different states. And the pic is stolen from someone's website. Although it may be a different one. In any case it's too good to be true.

P.S. HOWEVER the person I know very well (meaning it's not a rip off) had a huge warmblood gelding (12 years old or so) for sale for (if I'm not mistaking) $2,500 or so even neg to the good home. The owner was selling him, because he was too slow at the jumping course. So it happens. But I'd be very VERY careful.
