Thanks for the info, im guessing they only advertise in the local papers?... I remember the days when people would bring in goats, sheep, rabbits, etc... and they would sell after tack but before the horses. If Im around the 4th Friday I might have to run up and take a look.

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

Ya i don't think they run ads except locally and they still sell goats, rabbits etc. after the tack. When Roger died they quit the horse sales for awhile but now his daughter and SIL run them. If you go let me know I'll try and go and meet you if you want I only live 17 miles from there.

You should move this thread to the classifieds where you will get some traffic. I really do hope that someone comes along for all these guys.

So many people are losing jobs or having their hours at work reduced, I've lost count of how many businesses and companies that have laid off or shutdown just in my area, it's really scary. People are having troubles keeping their's so sad.
