The auctions are open to the general public. They are great places to shop as one gets to see many horses during the course of the day in one place, rather than running all over the country looking at one or two. A kill buyer doesn't buy just any horse. He has to be able to make money on it as he will likely be feeding it for a while. Horses don't go directly from auction to the kill plant. Most kill buyers will sell a horse privately as long as he makes a more money that what the market pays.

Fairly good conformation. Would like color (app, paint, but if the horse is great and has no color I would be just as happy.)
Fairly calm no higher then 5 (0 being deadbroke/bombproof. 10 being crazy/dangerous)
NC/SC border. (GA 2 far)
$o-$2000 (MIGHT go higher for PERFECT horse)

My last post (the one about my desired horse) was directed more towards iridehorses.
Btw, how do you list your horses in your "barn"? (new and can't figure it out)

Blondie are you looking for more of a Project horse, I know someone with a pretty little buckskin gelding, who acts slightly studdish and they are only wanting 200$ for him.

We also have a little 4 year old Bay Registered paint we may be willing to sell, i'd have to talk to my mom about it. But we have discussed selling her, due to my sister not riding her.

I can keep looking, I also know a guy here that raises and breeds registered paints and he always puts out VERY well trained horses, I can also get his contact info if you are itnerested.

Sure. (bout the contact info) Into geldings though. What part of my description sounds like a project horse? Not really into those unless its something simple, which its usually not.

Not suggesting you did, but you didn't specify that you didn't so I thought I would ask before I suggested horses that needed a little work. I'll see if I can get the guy's info with the nice horses.

O! Ok. Thanks. Do you know generally where he is located?

Here in NC, i'd say around Vale. But I don't know exactly.

Ok. Thanks.

Was that ad by the actual owner of the horse, or by someone who was trying to save it? I know here in WA, there are kill buyers that ship off horses on certian dates by people that drop them off, or horses that are a no sale at the auction houses.
Theres people that after the auctions try to find homes for the horses before the shipping dates that use phrases like that because theyre true. May be a complete differant situation but there may be other groups that do the same elsewhere and are trying to help rather then hurt. :)
