I bought from camelot auction last november. You have to pay and arrange for transportation and qt. I was lucky I transported and was able to qt at my farm. Not everyone is so lucky.
There should be a link on the camelot facebook page where everyone can arrange for both and generally get the price reduced because they will transport multiple horses at once going in the same direction.
Also if you personally go to pick up and check the horse make sure you have the right coggins test and paperwork. They handed my paperwork for a mare when I got a gelding... so sometimes the paperork doesnt add up. :/
Otherwise I lucked out my arab gelding is the sweetest boy in the world!! He can't seem to keep weight on but other then that he is a darling.
If you go to buy from them sight unseen as most do make sure you have a vet ready to check him out once he gets to your property/boarding barn. You want to get everything redone, coggins, shots, fecal test for worms, full body exam, floating etc to make sure he is good health and has no isssues before you start throwing a ton of money into him. Also before purchasing have someone experienced look at the photos they have on fb showing the horse maybe they can find faults before you even buy him. Also if you have someone knowledgable I would have them call to discuss the horse with them so they can get the facts directly. Then if you think its a good idea you can call back and buy him.
if you go there to look at the horses bring someone with you!
