because they know the background of the people there. And no kill buyers are allowed. And considering most kill buyers buy per pound and they don't sell horses by pound.

You are right, they do buy by the pound but they do know how to estimate the weight of any horse. By the horse that is cheap and they are cheap right now. I have seen a horse (stud) rode into a sale that was only at $125 and still no bid. The kill buyers didn't buy him, he was not no saled, but he could have been bid on by the kill buyer and would have went home with him. This was a well known stud from NE that was brought to a sale in SD. Just saying that I don't believe you can totally keep away a kill buyer. I believe they are at each and every auction at sometime and will buy the horse that doesn't sell and the owner doesn't no sale it. I am not sure how they can know the background of each and every buyer. I think that would be next to impossible.

Jmho! An owner that cares about their horse will never sell at an auction. You have no control over the buyer and could be sending that horse into a situation worse than a slaughter house.

I live in PA, and I don't know why I upset myself going to the New Holland auction, but for some reason I used to. There are kill buyers there, but they do not seem to pay over $100 for your average sized horse, a little more for a draft.

It is pretty obvious who the kill buyers are when they bid and win $50 horses who are dead lame and buy a lot of them. It would be nice to think that they are rescues, but I am not quite thinking that.
