Can anyone explain the "Ukraine" horse ads on the right?

They come up all the time. The horse is usually quite cheap (tonight it's a piebald 12.2 for £650) and it says Location: Ukraine Address: Kent. :confused3:

Surely they can't be going to import at that price? Or are they already in Kent, in which case why say their location is Ukraine?

It just baffles me when I see those ads. :confused3:

Yes I think it is a mistake in listing the ad. There was a Welsh sec D the other day listed as Ukraine but then had Wales in the advert.

Ah. I wonder why no-one seems to notice? If I was paying for an ad I'd be checking and asking for it to be put right. :)

Ohhhhh, that makes sense! I'd wondered if it was some sort of dodgy scam/buy unseen/send the money/no horse thing!

I thought this! I presumed it would be more of a "buy our 10k grand-prix warmblood and we'll send you a welsh section A with cushings and a bad attitude!"
