THAT'S SCARY!
I know how to tell a drugged one now: enough time spend watchin grumpy dave horses. We took home a drugged one once..she wasnt a bad pony, just not what we bought, ya know? Anyhow, I know how to spot a drugged one now, i just wondered if the kill auctions still existed, and if there were any in az.

This horse was hell bent on killing someone, it put several people in hospital with some horrific injuries. It took 4 people to get a head collar on it, 2 to distract it, 1 to get a headcollar on it and one person on hand to phone an ambulance. Leading it from stable to field required several people and full body armour probably would have been a good idea.

My mother is extremely experienced with rescue horses, abused horses and generaly nasty horses but this horse took chunks out of her, It was out to kill someone.

One of these days we should have a meet-up at the Shipshewana Auction. Just show up with your username on your shirt or something. I know quite a few people on here have mentioned going there. It would be so cool to meet everyone from this area!

I've seen two like that in my short life time. One was a paint we had who just wanted to hurt someone. You could see it. And he'd wait til u weren't suspecting anything. Mean, mean horse. Beautiful but stubborn and cross all the time. Oh...by the way...we sold him...at an auction And we did inform the auction goers how he was. He was APHA registered though and brought a decent sum of money and didnt go to a kill buyer. So whereever he is, hes off causing someone hospital bills but not dead.
I just wonder what makes them get that way.


BY THE WAY...THIS "SHIPSHENUEWA" OR WHATEVER AUCTION..WHERE IS IT IN INDIANA? YOU SAID IT'S THE WEEKEND AFTER THANKSGIVING? LIKE THE DAY ALL THE WEIRDOS WANT TO STAMPEDE IN WAL-MART (I hate shopping and crowds)? I may be in northern Kentucky or Ohio visiting family for thanksgiving...Maybeif it's its not too far north in IN I could drive up too!

That would be neat. I might be there on the 22nd. My friend said the Friday after Thanksgiving is a nightmare and she doesn't even bother. I believe she is going with a relative to sell some saddlebreds or something. But, she'll be coming back empty LOL.

We decided to have him PTS rather then risk our reputations or risk him killing someone.

I'll be there that day. The BO of where I work wants to sell one of her horses. I'm trying to convince her not to though... I've sold two other horses through that auction, not by choice though. I still feel bad about it. I hate not knowing where they ended up!

Sometimes you just gotta do it. Which I know I sound awful for saying. Ours wasnt dangerous from the ground (unless you were the farrier..He was just mean to the point of needing a experienced rider who was ready for him. Not the newbies that had him for trail riding :P.

It's in Shipshewana, Indiana. It's the day after Thanksgiving, on Black Friday. You can look it up on Google, but it's way up north. It's an hour and a half from where I live in Michigan City, and that's about 73 miles away.
