Also: pretty sure there's no such place as "Brownsville. Oregon". Maybe there is, but it would have to be so in the boonies that it would be totally ludicrous to even think for a second that there might be a Friesan there.

Oh if you say you'll come pick up the horse, they'll make up a story about how the horse is on the other side of the country, but don't worry, they'll have it hauled to you! They do this all the time.

SCAM, that's weird because I got the SAME exact response when I asked about a yorkie for "adoption". Every detail is the same, minus the horse.

Probably a scam or a really weird lady! She makes it sound like you already bought the horse! Since she accidently called him Mara once, it probably means she makes up different horses and tries to sell them, getting people's money and never selling the animal, or the animal being nothing like they described him as. Plus, no one sells any decent Freisian for $800...

Actually, there is (only know as I have family not far from there) - this is still a scam, but at the very least at least they chose a place that does exist, lol.
