I never go to a sale unless I'm really able to afford (in terms of money and life/time) what is selling. I've learned that I don't have a lot of willpower when it comes to sales. I have enough willpower to not go, and that's about it. I shudder to think what would happen if I went to a horse sale "just to look."

Lol. I love those type of horse sales! I had you a mare picked out in the catalog, but then I watched the video and wasnít as impressed as I thought I would be. I didnít go through all of them though.

It looks like there are more just ranch horses there too. I like that. They arenít what you look for but always what you end up needing most of the time. Lol

I'm not sure what you mean? I know there is a hospice in in Salmon but I have not ever had reason to visit it. If you meant the new sale barn then yes that has been completed.


FWIW I went through the catalog once last night and found at least 13 geldings that I would like a better look at, so I will probably book my hotel here real quick and at least go watch the events and then if something really stands out that I would like to have I will bid. The ones I am interested in are mostly up for sale by outfits that usually interest me e.g. Flint Creek, RMO, C7, Yeaman Ranch etc. There were a few newcomers that have ones I would like to look over as well but I am guessing if I bid it will probably be on ones from solid trainers/sellers that I know make outstanding horses. I am guessing that most of what I am interested in will fall into the $8,500 - $15,000 range when all is said and done. I should have my yearly bonus from work by then as well so that will probably have a bit to do with what I do or don't bid on :)

Never know I could find a diamond in the rough or I could come home with nothing at all.

My personal riding horse is getting up there in age and this last summer I had to give him a six week rest due to a gracilis injury. I'm not sure how many more years he realistically has in him. So I am looking for his replacement. He was a finished reiner when I got him and he was one of a matched brother/sister set that was used for national level competition by a famous reiner. When it came time to fish or cut bait his sister was flashier/hotter in the arena so he was sold off to fund his sister's career. He is going to be very hard to replace so we shall see what happens at this sale.

When I was there they were building the hospice. I attended a sale in a park area that was raising money for it. All items were donated from the locals.

Best auction I have ever attended! I bought most gifts for my family there!

Also bough a punnet of the biggest, sweetest cherries I have ever eaten at that auction.

@Cedar & Salty did you see that at the Wyoming Gelding sale last year RMO sold a draft cross for $35,000? That's a wee bit out of my price range, LOL!

He was a good one! I remember that one! That's when I realized how lucky I got with mine!

No, I can't have mules. I have too many small animals and kids running around the place. I can't afford to have a mule or a donkey that might decide to defend its pasture and kill a calf, a piglet or a dog or bite or kick a kid. I know lots of mules are nice but it only takes once to do have an accident that can't ever be taken back. We had donkeys and mules in the Marine Corps for packing supplies and heavy weapons in the mountains in places like Afghanistan etc. It isn't an animal I would choose to own until my youngest kids are a lot bigger and I don't have as many small animals around and I would have to have more pasture so I could make sure the mule was never in the same pasture with calves.

I have been around some horses that you could not trust a lot either. One mare would pin her ears and try to bite any small equine foal she thought she could reach. She killed her first foal and was never bred again. Others would try and bite you sometimes and others could not be trusted not to kick.

So just saying there can be bad tempered, mean horses the same as mean bad tempered mules. I know that mules and donkeys have an inbred dislike for canines. It depends on what they were raised up around as to if they tolerate other animals.
