I was under the impression that an auction was a good place to start looking. I would have ever thought it was a place for horses to meet their maker.

No, they aren't but you take a real chance of a KB bidding on her. I have 4 rescue horses and help the ARM bail out many others. I would never take a horse of mine to auction. Sorry, didn't mean to sound harsh, but it's a reality

Does this mare have a left hip tattoo??? If so, that can tell you what WB Registry she was accepted into. Take a peak and maybe share the photo if you can. This could also possibly help truly identify her as well.

Folks, let me start first that at the auction you can put a down limit, so it will NOT be sold below certain amount (and plenty of people do it in fact). Secondly, during this year NY auction in Thurmont, MD similar horse (13 yo WB, showed him jumping 1-1.5 ft, not really on bit) was sold for ~$2000. While I don't think auction is a way to go, still saying everything is cheap there is simply not true.

OP, I wish you all luck with finding the buyer for the horse! It looks lovely.
