I emailed asking if I could view the horse as it\'s close to where I live. JH emailed me back stating that the horse is now in Mbabane, Swaziland where he works with United Nations, but he cannot keep it there and will donate it plus saddle and all papers to me at only the transport costs. At this stage I phoned him and was surprised at his strong accent which he says is from Haiti (a very South African Afrikaans name). He got a courier company to phone me and they then emailed; they stated that I had to pay before loading the horse. The moment I said we have our own transport, the courier company got upset, demanding to see my ID before releasing the horse. I said I have no need of their service but will collect directly from the donor, at which point they both went silent.

The \"courier\" company is Rainbow Shipping and Logistics Ltd, and his pseudo name is Gareth, on email address info.rslog@gmail.com Their unprofessional email had no telephone numbers on it.

The donor plus courier guy had very similar voices (maybe even the same person).
