This situation has been addressed on Trentriders.com a few times, however it is still ongoing and people need to become aware of how they can try to protect themselves and their horses from this type of unethical dealing.
There is an individual in the Kawartha Lakes area that looks for individuals giving away free or inexpensive horses. He tells the owners that he is looking for a companion for his horse. He may also say that he is looking for broodmares or a horse to train etc.
