Question Is "Fairytale Horses" a scam? Please help

Has anyone out there tried the e-book by "Beth Moore" on growing horses manes and tails? I think the book is titled FAIRYTALE HORSES. Anyhow, is it a scam? If you have tried it and it DOES work, could you please post pics of your horse? If it does NOT work, please let me know! All answers GREATLY appreciated!

I think that review is faked, myself. Everything else I have read on the subject says it is a scam--that the book is terrible. Clearly all of the photos of "examples" on the website are either photoshopped or stolen from the Internet. The author does NOT own those horses, and they do not use her formula.

The scary thing is she also owns the domain name "patparelli.org" for some reason....

The review doesn't say it works, it just says there are good grooming tips but that it isn't a magic fix that will grow a mane and tail. When I read it I came to the conclusion that this is yet another "how to" grooming book with yet someone else's tips but genetics determines a mane and tail.

This too. Look at the claim at the very top of the page: Pat Parelli | Pat Parelli

"Ages your horse five years. In six months! GUARANTEED."

Then, wonder where she's getting her photos on that page?

Dapple Grey - Horses Wallpaper 35674 - Desktop Nexus Animals

Guiness World Record for Longest Horse Tail

Mythos P.R.E. Stallions at Stud

And so on.....

Are you talking about the review or the fairytale horses book? The review page has ads, just like we do here on hf. You can't judge a review by what ads the site chooses to show. Besides the review says it isn't some miracle thing, it says it doesn't work and that it's yet another book on grooming. That's all I believe that op wanted to know.

Those are pictures of "Pat Parelli Beautiful Fairytale horses" on her site (the Fairytale horse book promotional, written by the author), used to promote her product. She doesn't outright state that they belong to clients of hers who use her method, but it is strongly implied. Why else would they be used for illustrations? Only problem is, they're yanked from various places on the web.
