Questions about horse sales

I'm looking to buy a clyde and found a website about the National Clydesdale Sale that takes place in Illinos. Has anyone been to this sale or a big horse sale? I'm trying to figure out how it works, if you are allowed to view the horses individually or if you just see them in the arena...also if you place bids on them like an auction or if you just find one you want and pay the asking price.

It seems to me on the website that you bid for them. I have been to one of the big Keeneland Thoroughbred auction and there was a place behind the auction ring where you could look at the horses before the auction started. From what I've heard and seen at some auctions some people do see if anyone wants to buy for a certain price, especially for the "lower class" ones. And if I were you I would buy a couple of those raffle tickets for that nice little filly!

I saw the info on the raffle. I'd love to win her, but I'm looking for my first horse and don't have the first idea of how to train one. Pluse I wouldn't be able to ride her for a long time even if I knew how to train her. So no filly for me, at least not right now Thing is, I want a clyde with a tail, and since "show" clydesdales are usually docked, I'm trying to decide if it is worth it for me to go to the show. I'm in GA, so it would be a trip to go all the way up there if they aren't going to have anything I'm interested in. I've heard the sale is a big deal, but I've done yahoo searches and posted on draft horse boards, and no one has posted that they've been or what it is like. I'm wondering if I should go at all

I mean yeah if you didn't want a a tailless clyde you could look for one online. My favorite cite is equine. I just looked there and there are quite a few on there but the only one with a tail was a stallion.

Breeding Program

Awesome breeding program with exceptional Pedigree for sale. One Registered Percheron Stud ( Black with white star- 4 yo) and Three Registered Percheron Mares (Gray: Mother + 2 full daughters) for sale. Price includes: training skid, shoeing stock, harness' collars and two-horse rubber-tired wagon. Stud: Grey Gables Xcellance. Pedigreed ancestry includes Happy Hill Midnight, Commander's Bob, South Valley Ha Ha, Just-A Classic and La Don Again. Mares: Grey Gables Katarina. Sire: Rexio Allen/ Dam: Pinewood Farms Michelle's Avon. Pedigree includes: Rolling Acres Rex and Successor's Lady. Daughters: Grey Gables Rosie and Grey Gables Silva sired by Hills Dale Chief. Pedigree includes: Bittersweet Chief David, College Chief, Hill's Dale Princess and Koncarlaet's Prince. If you are looking to enhance your current breeding program or start fresh, THIS add brings it to you.

Katarina is trained to farm equipment and wagon by the Amish of Ohio. Rosie is ground broke and has pulled wagon double-up with "Kat." Both are broke to saddle. Lance and Silva have minimal time under saddle and have not been harnessed. All give credit to the Gentle Giant Breed of the Percheron.

Legacy Farm is located in Prattville, Alabama. My drafts are for sale due only to personal health issues that make it impossible for me to continue in the realm of "Feathered Feet."

I know this is an older thread but the National Clyesdale Sale is not the place to buy your first Clyde. Pretty much the cream of the crop is going to be there. It is a "normal" sale. People will bid from the stands and online. They will throw pedigrees and owners at you and you need to know who their talking about. Average price was also $6K last year. Friday there is a preview and typically horses are worked during the sale as well. They will not be worked in the sale.

You've probably been told this before but the best first draft is a mature, broke one that will teach you all you need to know and can't get you in trouble.

Agreed! Another selling point in my book is: Never be the 'first' to ride or drive on your initial 'interview visit.' If the owner won't get on'm or drive'm neither should you. When first looking to purchase my Percheron's that was a very "ground-finding" experience that needless to say took me more than once to learn. HA!
