Does this sound like a scam to you?

We put up an ad for several lambs for $400. Someone responded, saying they were out of the country for business but wanted to buy the lambs. They said they'd send a money order now and pick up the lambs later. I wrote back asking exactly when they'd come, but I got this from them:

"Hello. I'm sorry, but it turns out my wife sent the wrong money order to you. It was for another transaction, and for quite a bit more than the $400. When you get it, maybe you could send a check to me for the extra amount? I am very sorry about this."

Nothing about when he's coming to pick up the lambs. Money orders are also very easy to fake, especially foreign looking ones.

Yeeeeaaaah. Not falling for that.
