Since is is only a few miles from my house, I have been there several times. It is an interesting experience, and every time I have been there it is a bit different. Unless you are a VERY experienced horse person, or have one who will go with you,I would not recommend buying there. However, I find it sort of fun. They have a mix of horses, like any auction. THis one however, I woudl describe rather like a Mennonite/Amish used car sale. Truely. The vast majority of the horses are driving/working horses. They typically have a few riding horses, but not a great selection (like have been at Camelot auction lately.). Prices vary, but the nice driving horses (their transportation) are usually the highest priced.
That said, there was really only once I came close to coming home with one, and it was a draft cross baby with a large untreated (fresh) cut on his leg that sold for $10. (to a private person, not the feed buyer). There are also feedlot horses there, so if you go, be prepared for that.
I go EARLY, and like to watch them unload, which tells you a lot-it shows you how they unload, something about who brought them, and more than if you get there to just see them standing. Many have not had Coggins, and get them after sale. Because of this, anything bought there would need quarantine, like is recommended for any auction horse.
I may go the 23rd, depending on what else is going on here.....I certainly do NOT need another horse.....lol
