Friesian scam?

I was looking around online and came to this website:

Friesian Horses

The horses aren't very expensive for Friesians, does it look like a scam? I know there has been many, many Friesian scammers out lately and wondering if this is another. They seem unlike the others in the fact they give an address, phone number, and testimonials. Do they seem legitimate?

The prices are really low I would be leary, a imported mare for 2300 it costs more than that to import and have them go through customs for quarantine.

I knew that I'd heard that name before. A simple google search revealed; Friesians for Sale at Black Sterling Friesians

My eyes! SO MUCH COMIC SANS!!! D:

Doesn't look like a scam so much as a do-it-yourself-er as far as the website goes. Prices are likely a product of the crappy horse market but I also don't know a huge amount about Friesians and their typical value.

Look at the post that was put up right before yours... Scam. Friesians are worth more than about 3k. Gorgeous horses, though. If only you really could get one for that cheap!

That's crazy! They copied almost everything word-for-word from the true site. How scary, I hope people aren't falling for this.

Ah. Probably posted while I was typing. Like I said, don't know the breed or the pricing! Wishful thinking I guess, I want one some day!

it looks legit, with their own horses and people, but they literally copied almost word for word the other one and its not well made, plus those prices are not realistic. so im gonna say scam....

*Insert something witty*

OMG one of these horses was posted recently in my area, and we were thinking of possibly going to look, then thought, this price is too good to be true....
