QH Sale

I went to the QH show in Lexington yesterday, I didn't know they were having a sale to but it was really neat. they have books that tell you about the horses and you can go through the barns and check them out and then they run them through an auction, There were paints, QH's, and Appy's.... anyway...

I was surprised by the prices... One mare that was really really cute and western pleasure trained, won big the day before only went for $1125 becuase she was a cribber but then... a really cute mare, nicely started under saddle buckskin went for $4200 which I thought was a great price until I realized she had impressive bloodlines (which I really like by the way) but that she was not tested for HYPP, that to me was a high price to pay knowing there could be a potential issue...

Then there was a horse there, i dont think it went through the sale... I hope it didnt that get this! was purchased for $200,000!!!!!! OMIGOSH! and it was there, competing at that show! WOW!

As with all auctions you have to look at the region, the horse and then color. Dilute colors are the "in thing" right now so Buckskins, Palominos, Cremellos, ect. are going to sell for more that Sorrels and Blacks. AQHA show horses are always going to bring in a ton of money as they're "America's Breed" and you can market and show then ANYWHERE. Nobody wants a horse that has issues which is why a super nice, pretty horse that cribs isn't going to sell for much (the bidders have to take into account the cost of repairing their fence continuously).
