Going Once Going Twice
 
Some of you might remember me posting about having a plan to breed my horse to a Vanner stallion, purchase a foal or purchase a bred mare. Well I've been having some discussions with a Draft owner near me. She has a couple of her own Vanners and told me to hold off on the decision on buying one until I go to the Mount Hope Draft Auction in March. She told me that there are some very nice spotted drafts, Gypsy Horses and even Vanners and Cobs that go through for tons less than what the breeders sell them for. She told me that there will be 500 or so drafts there at the uncataloged sale. We should have a trailer by then : ).

So in honor of my decision here are some mighty fine horses going for the highest bid:

Drooling!

Kids make horses cuter and more expensive!

The Green Monkey $16 million dollars, never won a race!

That's how you sell a horse

I want!

Wow, I love the first team. Percherons? I couldn't quite hear it very well, but they are absolutely gorgeous. Of course I've always been a fan of horses much to big for me me being 5'1" and all.

I do believe they are a beautiful pair of Percherons. They need to escape their barn and come jump into my pasture!

Lol, we can trade off ;). Of course they'll make my Arabian look like a mini lol. That would be very interesting to see.

I wish we knew who all these Vanner/Cob people are, who are selling their horses through auctions. In the last six or so years, we have only seen one come through auctions. I believe that one was from Florida. Most of us who are serious about the breed, keep a very close eye on auctions. I'd bet that any who go through auctions, are probably crossbreds and just 'said' to be purebred Gypsies.

It was discovered that The Green Monkey actually had a spinal injury that kept him from being successful in the racing industry.

It bothers me when people call him a dud or a failure. Its not his fault.

....and thank God, since I believe she is a breeder/vet right? Poor little soul. I can't remember now, if this one one we spoke about on our forum a while back. Do you know where it went or who bought it? Do I have your permission to post this on our forum please?
