We have a monthly local horse auction and I headed over today to see what the prices were like - unbelievable.
Three AQHA weanlings selling with transfer papers went through that were pretty nice looking, the buckskin filly went for 315.00. The others 250. And 125. A few riding horses that were decent and papered went through for less than 400.00... our sale is bad in that you can't ride the horses and the ring is too small to let the horses do anything but turn in a tight circle - so it's a big gamble... but I have never seen the prices so low. Of course that is probably in direct relation to the fact that hay is so high- we had a great growing year here in Colorado, but the folks in Texas have apparently been coming up and so our prices are nearly double last years - I spent 10.50 a bale for barely decent alfalfa - yuck.
Kind of a fun day window shopping though -
