    It's not my picture or hers. She sent me the link to it because she was there when the person who took the pictures were. No my friend isn't a breeder or a vet. I think you are thinking of Lively Leo's owner??? I doubt she'd talk me into going to an auction because she wants me to breed to her stallion and she'd lose my business if I bought something there. I'll ask my friend how much he sold for but I doubt she knows who it went to.

    Here is the link to that picture:

    Thanks so much.

    Am I correct in thinking this in a mainly Amish auction?

    Yes it is mainly an Amish auction. She said that one went for a little over $3000, if she remembers correctly. She said that there were a few smaller spotted draft ponies that went for $500 to $1000. She said she bought a beautiful 18h Spotted Draft gelding for $400 and he was rode through.

    If we make it to the auction I'll post pictures and keep track of what everything sells for.

    Hmm. Lot of money for a rather poor quality little horse. I know well bred colts, selling for that much.

    I heard at several auctions, they advertised that Gypsy Horses would be sold. Turned out they were crosses or Spotted Drafts. I still see people advertising SDs and others as Gypsies, in the classifieds on the net.

    I'd be grateful if you can take pics for us. Thanks so much.

    I wish I had $16M to shell out for a horse...

    Nice horses. Thanks for sharing the videos.

    I'm not looking for something with a ton of feather anyway. So I don't think I would have bid on him had I been there. I'm looking for something between 14 and 16 hands, spotted, drafty, minimum feathering, possibly rode through or driven and hopefully something younger. My husband will be looking for a black or grey Percheron gelding, rode through (not driven), barefoot, mid-aged and hopefully (with luck) something sound and sane (but with any horses you risk getting something that needs health care or training and we're prepared for that). We might also attempt to purchase a smaller pinto pony or Haflinger depending on the size of the trailer we buy.

    Well the little horse in the pic, didn't exactly have a ton of feather, although most of it was bog-burned, so difficult to tell. Certainly not breeding quality either. I hope he/she got a good home where it won't be bred.

    I hope you find what you seek at the next auction and I'm holding you to pictures remember!

    Don't forget also for your hubby, that the Draft rescues often have some fab horses for adoption.

    I know. We've been approved through Frog Pond Draft Rescue and if they come up with something that fits what we are looking for we are willing to adopt. First we have to get a trailer.
