    Hmm... stumbled on this add while surfing the computer: 6yo friesian for $850...

    I figured this is a scam but I emailed the person just for the heck of it. Well, firstly, this is the friesian: Friesian Horse For Sale, Texas, GARLAND

    The reply from the girl was this:

    Hey There,

    Thanks for the inquiry.I got your mail in regards
    To the Friesian Gelding up for adoption.
    This is to let you know that the horse is still available.
    He is call Pualus.Please let me tell you some details for Pualus.
    He lives with me under a shed behind my home .He was
    Born on April 2004.Pualus has been worked with from birth
    and has wonderful manners, ground, stable, and saddle.
    He has been trail-ridden extensively, and crosses water,
    covered bridges, rides alone or with others.Pualus
    was trained to drive by me as a 2 year old.he is 16.1HH
    he is very calm and adores playing with kids, adults ,and
    other house hold pets.he loves taking rides.
    We are presently here in Oregon for a 9months church project
    And we just rented a home here at 220 E Washington Ave, Brownsville OR.We have
    Plans on staying here for sometime.
    You are more than welcome to visit us at any moment.we are a very
    Welcoming family.I am giving the horse up for adoption because my
    17yrs old daughter
    (Jennifer) who was taking care of him passed away
    months ago through a car accident
    When she was on her way back from her piano classes.So the occupying
    Nature of my job does not permit me to keep Pualus. Giving Mara out to
    Another home will be a way of wiping
    Jennifer's memories from my head which is making me disturbed each
    Time I think of her.
    To adopt him,i will like to know this from you.
    Are you a breeder.?
    Have you had a horse before?
    Will you be willing to send me some regular pics of Pualus so we can
    See his progress. .?
    How soon will you want to have him transported to you if you find
    Difficulties to come for the pickup ?
    As for your further training of Pualus I will also be sending you some
    Basic guidelines to you via email ,so that you follow as soon as he
    Arrives
    You.If you have any more questions to ask, just
    Let me know.will also like to know when you will like to have him.
    Attached to this mail are the pics of the horse..
    Do have a nice day and get back to me at your Convenience.
    Stay blessed like I said if I have to deliver him
    he will be safe as he will come along with people who
    Will take great care of him as he gets to your
    Home , he will just be so comfortable and we have have to work out
    This.the $800 I listed on the advert will be for the
    Transport charges.
    The horse was given to us free by our family friend Rev Matt Demott
    and we promise him we shall give
    Pualus free to another home if we decide to part away with him
    .anyway just let me know if this is okay with you .
    I will be expecting to read from you soon


    ^^It's long, I know, and I only said a few short words to her.
    Anyway, I caught how the girl accidently called the horse Mara, so I was puzzled about that. But, what are your opinions on this? I personally am still thinking it's a scam, but what do I know?
    Oh, and, by the way, I also stumbled across another add with the same exact words as the first fresian and it had the same exact pictures, except the horse's name+location+price was changed.

    Everything about this says scam. I think there was another thread like this recently, someone selling a friesian as well.

    Definitely a scam. A fresian that looked like that one that had never been handled would bring 3 times that.

    $800 for shipping charges is always a scam. Tell them you'll come pick up the horse yourself this weekend to save the shipping.
