Kigers at auction
Was at a horse auction bout three years ago in OR. Kiger was the featured breed and there was maybe 15-20 Kigers from one breeder there. Those horses have awsome color and an 80's rock star mane but after that its a tough sell. Amongst all the hoopla about these Steens Mtn. Kiges they started the bidding on the select ponys and the price just went down,down, down with no takers. Finaly the owner sends a string of about a dozen into the shute and the auctioneer starts again...nothin, in exasperation and seeing he's built a white elephant he asks if anyone would like to select a horse out of the string for like $600 please raise their card...nothin. The poor guy gets down to $100-$200 before he gets action.
When you see these horses against the other breeds they look strange, sorry Kiger lovers. Having never seen Kigers before that my first impression was "what the heck is that thing?" Huge head, long stretched out body, thick short legs,my impressions were not alone that day.
