The neighborhood stud hasn't caused anymore problems, but then again, no one has been in heat. That mare went to a rescue, but she looked MUCH better before she left, thanks to my daughter and I.
Yes, I know about auction horses, and have never bought one myself. On friday night, we went to the local one, and I was just so shocked and disappointed. When I used to go, many years ago, the class of people who went were so different. This placed looked like the tatoo capital of the world. Trashy, sleazy, low class looking people, with dirty, trashy looking kids. Not putting down those who have tatoos, it was just that they were all so trashy looking. Instead of sitting on the benches, they sat on the steps themselves, and just watched my daughter help me struggle to get up and down, because I can't lift my legs very high.
I saw a few very nice horses, first one through was a huge, fat, stocky sorrel gelding with lots of chrome. Supposed to be gentle for anyone. I loved him. I believe he sold for $675, a very pretty small QH or QPony, worked great in the ring, $475, and a big flea bitten mare looked to be a fabulous riding horse, $675. The night my daughter and her family went, when they bought Miracle, a lady was there with a flash light, checking all the horses eyes to see if they were dilated or not.
