It's very over cast here today, and somewhat chilly. I'm playing with JP today, and we are only staying outside for short periods. He's napping right now.

Next weeks forecast looks good for the start of the week. Celia is on vacation so we hope to get a good start on conditioning horses.

Well hopefully you'll be able to get a good week in. I'm planning on riding tomorrow at the rails-to-trails. That should be a good easy 15 miles, if we ride the whole thing end-to-end and back. And since it's been raining so much here lately, it'll be doubly good because it has a good hard crusher-run road base. Everywhere else will be a mud bog. I haven't decided who I'll ride yet. I rode Bob last, the Sunday after Thanksgiving, and I think I rode Grace before that, but I couldn't tell you when that was. So I guess I'll ride Hope this time. I think the last time I rode her was back in late September. I've got too many horses!

The times i've had more then one horse, I always had trouble decideing which to ride because I always liked one more then the other(s). Lots of times when I knew I should be riding one of the others, I's land up not riding at all...like that makes a lot of sense:)

Took me years but I finally figured out I'm a one horse rider:)

Yeah, it was definitely easier to keep one in shape. I had Blade in pretty decent shape that first summer when he was all I was riding, and of course I wasn't riding near as often as you do. I'll bet Harley will be a lean, mean, CTR machine by the time you start competing him this spring.

Very, very strange - just found one of my horses for sale in Florida for $600. Happens I still own the horse and all of the information in the ad is wrong.

http://www.horseville.com/php/view.php

If the link doesn't take you right to the picture, it's ad #089764

What!! That's Tuffy, isn't it? "Buck Nedd New Home" I would report those people so fast. Someone is looking for attention, I say.

That is why, I am afraid sometimes, of posting pictures. You never know who is going to steal them.

Are you sure that's not one of those virtual horse sites, they pirate pics and "sale" and "show" virtual horses... Just a thought.

Nope, doesn't appear to be a virtual site after I looked. You know, that makes you think that they are going to require a deposit, and then skip with someone's money. You should inquire!

I'm trying to find out who posted the ad now. I can't email and inquire because they would recognize my email so Janelle is going to try to contact the seller this evening.

Yep that's Tuffy and I'm spitting nails so to speak :)

That's what I think it is but I really want to stop whoever it is. If and when I can find out who the *seller* is I'm going to file a complaint with the site but also contact the police where ever *emily* is I think.

If nothing else, they are using a picture I took without my permission. Don't know if that would work or not.

No, I got an email from someone inquiring through an ad I have on another site. Really pretty nasty as a matter of fact, asking who really owned this horse since they had seen him at horseville.com. I started to send a nasty email back and then thought maybe I ought to check just in case.

You've got to wonder what her angle could be. How could someone profit from a scam like this? Surely people don't send money for a horse sight-unseen.

That's what I don't understand. Although 20+ years ago I bought a horse, site unseen. It was from a nationally known breeder though and I had seen pictures of her and her previous foals. (and for a heck of a lot more than that)

Really bizarre, duchess! What a coincidence that the potential buyer would even have made the connection! and contacted you! All the bad grammar and BS in that ad and the emailer thought maybe ~you~ were the fraud?

It's an obvious fraud, I'd sure report it in a hurry, at least to the site so they can remove all her other ads too, if she has any, but maybe even to law enforcement.

Which brings up a funny point. She says he's a gelding and then turns around and says he'll throw 100% color.

I just got off the phone with the guy that owns the website. He gave me her email address and the physical address. He said he will pull the ad and email me any information he has in addition on this person so I can contact law enforcement. He was really most gracious and anxious to clear it up so it appears the website is on the up and up anyway.

Just so you know or in case you need it later, I did save the whole page, so in case you need something off of it after he pulls it, it's preserved.

I don't know. I think he clearly looks juvenile still in the picture, not an 8 year old horse. But there's a lot that doesn't make sense about what she did.

You should post something about this on the horse forum. There's a lot of those folks that look at online ads, some for real money, I guess one shouldn't assume there's real horses behind the ads unless they go look.

Thanks. He just emailed me a screen shot also. He also emailed me the ISP information, the address she used to register which was Fort Pierce, Florida although he said the ISP is Boca Raton, Florida

I'm going to see if I can find a Hutch Ranch or that address in Ft Pierce or Boca Raton.

That's great, thanks. I'm frustrated :) There is apparently no 354 Kindle Drive in Ft Pierce, or in Port St Lucie which is where the zip code she gave is. Her email address is hutchranch@aol.com but I can't email her for fear she will recognize me (although she seems pretty stupid)

Well, it's not surprising it might be a completely made up address.

I wouldn't want to risk spooking her too much either.

Any idea what law enforcement agency to report it to?

No, I can't tell who would cover that area but I'll check at work tomorrow. My niece is going to email her and see if she gets a reply. And I'm thinking that on Momdy our computer person at work can tell me something about how to find out information from the ISP stuff.
