Man flogs dead horse on eBay

Andalusian or Lipizzan? We have no idea

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Stuff devil dolls, second-hand breast implants and bare knuckle-fight DVDs, this has to be the tastiest auction on eBay for months: your chance to acquire a dead horse at a knock-down price.

It's a case of caveat emptor, though, because the entire description of this particular item is:

Dead horse for sale.

Please email me with any questions.

Yup, that's it. No idea if it's bay, piebald or palomino, or Andalusian, Lipizzan or Tennessee Walking. Your guess is as good as ours.

Mind you, it's a bit of a snip at the moment with no-one taking the chance to open the bidding at at £0.01. Dog food manufacturers have another nine days to make their pitch. ®
