Its got a couple of glaring errors- certainly not a palomino to start, and it says mare, and they quite clearly say HE and BOY in the advert.....

sounds ideal for a friend of mine, but I am so hesitant to recommend anything slightly dubious incase its a scam!!

Tis a scam, note the phone number is an 070 again........this is getting ridiculous the amount of scammers out there:mad:

why does 070 make it a scam?
it could be just as easily that someone has filled in the fields wrong,

I didn't think it was a scam jsut miss wrote a few things.

Most places put odd numbers in front of the real number, they do in the adtrader.

Isn't something like no mobile number starts 070??
Rhea I don't think its a few 'mis-prints' as they are big mis-prints!

Wow I would've looked at that and just thought maybe the owner is a little computer novicey.. will have to keep a watch out for the 070 numbers!

I think HM should hire me to go through all their adverts and delete the scams.. what a great job that'd be!! :D
