I have met and work with a few horses out of camelot. A lot of them are drafts from amish country. As such, they tend to be very sweet and well mannered but will not pick up their feet for love or money. There was a FANTASTIC riding/driving mule that someone got out of camelot originally. That said I also met a horrible draft with no brakes that was "saved" from the slaughter pen. This horse was lame, had a giant tumor on its head and would bolt/had no brakes or regard for anyones safety. That horse was euthanized a few months after purchase due to safety reasons.

If you do get a horse out of there, I would take someone who has experience with the auction scene. There can be some shifty goings on and having someone who is both familiar with that scene and even better can spot a lameness is really valuable. A fair number of horses end up at auction end up with lamenesses and that can be a headache. Some people due to experience and an eye can really spot a lameness (even a slight one) and that's valuable. Particularly if you are looking for a horse to ride. There is also a skill to reading/deciphering the descriptions. Don't rush in to it and if you know what you are looking for you can find some real gems.
