We are in the heart of 'horse country'. A friend bought a project 2 year old 2 weeks ago for $800.00. His sire stands for $2500.00 and his dam is a well-bred cutting mare that won a few dollars in the cutting pen. A gelding sold at the same sale for $3500.00. He, too, had won a little cutting money but was not good enough to haul. Someone will make a team sorting horse out of him or sell him to a team sorter.

We are less than a one-day trip from the Mexican border, so every horse is worth killer price. A 1000# horse without ribs showing is worth about $200.00. A slick, fat, open broodmare weighing 1250# or more is still worth about $500.00 to $600.00. Thin 700# 2 year olds will be set in at $80.00 to $100.00, more if they are registered and have good breeding or have a lot of color. We have a lot of really well-bred horses here. We also have a lot of traders that come to this sale including the main killer buyer.
