The people who own and run the sale are providing a sale facility only. Please treat these people with respect. They have been polite, professional and accommodating.
Horses are consigned to this sale, sold and ship out the same day. These horses do not have the luxury of photographs, promotion and time. They are sold in one day, to kill buyers, horse dealers, private homes, etc.
There were a variety of breeds, ages, genders and colors. The conditions of the horses varied, depending upon the care they received PRIOR to the auction. Sales prices ran $10 through $700 (though the $700 horse was a highly sought after well trained black percheron that had multiple bidders).
We have provided our information to the office, and advised them that if a horse comes in that is unfit for sale and to be turned away, to please call us and we will help. We would like to keep this line open, so please, treat them politely, professionally and with respect.
Next sale is Friday, February 19, 2010.
Tack at 1:00 p.m.
Horses at 6:00 p.m.
If you’ve never attended an auction, it’s best you not go alone. The people there were honest and friendly, but if you do not know how to assess a horse or follow an auctioneer, you may find yourself in a difficult position.
