OMG - this made me sad :( I'm so glad your mule and Karma have you, now! They are lucky and you are kind.

Oh I am so happy to hear that. CONGRATS and now you and Indy don't have to work so hard

When you give a personal lesson in meanness to a critter or to a person, don't be surprised if they learn their lesson.

Karma is well trained as most likely a hunter so we are just covering the bases to make sure she's not stolen because it just seems so odd for a horse with training like hers to be in a kill pen.

Oh and you should have seen the prices of the other horses going there. A beautiful blue roan colt sold for $10 as did several other babies under a year old. Donkeys went for around $20. Another Leopard Appy that had come with Karma sold for $200. A black Perch went for about $400 and these are all from the kill pen sales. We didn't watch the sales ring horses because we were done once we got these 2. The prices were lower this week than they were on October 22.

We knew we were taking a gamble with Karma since she was in the kill pens but we really lucked out with her! And who knew I'd be an Appy person? LOL!
YAY! You are a lucky person I wish I could find something that cheap, that pretty and well trained haha. Congrats! And Karma--what a cool name for her. Seems like she's living up to it: your good deed of giving her a home as come back around as a good horse with sensible training!

Poultry, look at the other thread I just posted a mare for you.

We bought a horse that came from an auction. Kind of sucks cause you have no idea whats happened to the horse. we thought he was lame because he was barefoot well needless to say its not its his tendon. So the vet thought then she came out the other day and is now saying that it could be and old surgery in his pastern, because she feels a scar there. Ugh... Its sad because he's a QH so he's so sweet and we bought him for my two nieces for christmas. Hopefully he will be ridable when he heals but we might end up having to do xrays or sonogram.. :(

The very first auction I went to was with a friend. I was 14, and she got this mare in exchange for a horse she bid on. The horse she actually bought was a black baldface colt, probably a little over a year old, and he kicked her when she went to get him from the pen. A couple guys offered to trade her this puny, furry, tick-infested paint mare in exchange for the colt. And now we have Naomi! :) PS, she paid $300 I think.

Ok, for those that do make it to the sale... I will be there with a halflinger and a grade liver chestnut for horses and three women for humans. Here is an old pic of me and the other younger lady that will be with me. Hope to see some of you there. Sorry that we have to miss you PoultryGirl :( It would have been nice.


YAY!!!! Somewhere between 21 and 35 signatures, I was granted chat access!!! Now out to be with all the animals
