It stays in the holding facility. I think, after it's a 3 time loser (up for adoption 3 times with no bids) then it goes to a certain pen in the facility where they keep the "lifers".
Of course, folks can walk through the facility and adopt those horses if they choose, but they aren't actively advertised as up for adoption. Most of those horses are older, some have serious soundness or conformational issues, and some just aren't "pretty" enough for someone to want them.
Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
