I'm sure Fugly once posted with advice for how to proceed at an auction, and what to look out for, but I've searched the blog and can't find anything :/ You will find several auction reports here
, though, which may tell you more about the kind of things you'll see going on.
Advice I do recall seeing posted is to know exactly what you're going for, and know exactly what your financial limits are, and stick to your guns. There will be many horses there you won't
be able to save and making the necessary decisions can be tough.
