Well here's how they work around here. You pull up and there's trucks and trailers everywhere. Horses that have never been to town are tied to trailers and they're pullin back and breaking equipment. People are dressed like cowboys and cowgirls, but most of em are trail riders at best. There's skinny horses and culls everywhere you look. Some kids are riding a horse double that they have no business on, and it's bouncing off the trucks and trailers having a runaway. Over yonder there's the sound of a horse banging and scrambling and falling out of a trailer. Lots of horses pawing and generally acting impatient.
You walk inside the building and it's chaos. In the crowd there's dudes and dealers and in the ring there's a loud colered Walkaloosa with a knocked-down hip and a parrot mouth that won't gait right. They "lost the papers" but still the people are ooooing and aaaahing over it. Some kid jumps on it bareback with a halter and pulls it in a couple circles, then jumps off before the fireworks start. If you do see a good lookin horse, BEWARE! There's a hole in it somewhere. It's either blind, crippled, crazy, schitzophrenic, deaf, dumb, flips over when you get on, bucks, bites, cribs, kicks, foundered, criptorchid, snaky, stringhalted, stifled, wind-broke, or a combination of these.
Beware of the horse traders and jockeys. They're the fat ones standing in the ring with stock poles. They're fat because they don't actually ride, just go to sales and lie to people. You can spot em in the parking lot. They'll have a shiny new truck pulling 39 head of horses in a 24' stock trailer. They pay punchy kids $5 a head to ride horses thru the sale and the horses never seen a saddle
There's buted horses, sedated horses, and tranquilized horses. There's lies and exaggerations. There's wrecks and pandemonium.
did I miss anything? heehee just providing entertainment
