I have no idea, Jen. I didn't see who won her but you can't buy them all in any case. It would be nice to think that she went to a good home although I just can't get over the selling price. The prices were actually the worst I've seen and I expected them to be much better considering the amount of people there and the start of the season here.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Is there anyway to find out who bought her ? Just curious , I don't know much about auctions if they would let that kind of info out.

Prices here in PA aren't much better for the auction horses, nice reg. horses were going for $50-$75

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

Was just at a South Dakota horse sale today and prices are the same. You can pick up nice registered stuff for $5-$200. It's pretty sad. I agree with Kevin, open up some of the slaughter houses again. Even if they aren't open here, I know of buyers coming down from Canada and taking semi loads of them back with them, so they are still going to slaughter despite it not being aloud here.

THOSE PRICES -- MAN! I would most likely have gotten myself into trouble had I been there! I can't believe the $50 price tag -- unreal!

There is no such thing as natural horsemanship, because nothing we do with horses is natural. There is only good and bad horsemanship.
