For sale

Hard to tell. They do look very similar - even the tail is the same length. Did you send the for sale ad to the people with the stolen horse?

It looks like the same horse
with that back right hoof marking and the same build. Did you text the seller or the missing horse contact? Most certainly call the people that have the stolen add up. Give them a link to the page and the phone number as soon as possible. Help them bring their boy home.

Probably just a look-alike. There are a lot of chestnut horses with just one white foot.

Plus, the sale horse is a gelding and the stolen one is a stallion. I doubt seriously someone would steal a stally, have it gelded, and then stick it up on CL for sale.

I wouldn't text, e-mail the link to the CL add to the person looking for the stolen horse.

Even if it's not the same horse, at least you helped as much as possible.

You'd be surprised how foolish some people are.

I text the stolen ad- but have not heard back. I'll email them now, just in case. And who said the theif couldnt have just said it was a gelding? These areas are only 10-15 miles from one another...

Not really. There are plenty of below-average intelligence people in the world and I've met more than my share of them, so my surprise bar is set pretty high.

Just saying, why would anyone steal a stallion, pay a vet to geld it, then sell it on CL for $500.00? Doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Let, anyone who's been around horses longer than a millisecond can tell a gelding from a stallion.

But Speed, who said its really a gelding? A suspecting thief?

The For Sale ad states it's a gelding. Unless someone's completely blind and/or brain dead, they'll be able to tell if it's not a gelding. Even people who aren't horse savvy know what testicles look like.
