Re: [RC] "pound dog" mentality for horses? - Truman Prevatt

I'm wouldn't characterize the auctions in FL as feedlots or killer lots. I'm sure there are some meat producers there looking for horses but it seems that the prices may be high enough that it is not economically feasible to buy many of them for meat. The auctions seem to be well attended by people looking for a horse. And there are quite a few with or without papers that end up there. It is amazing how many good horses come on the market because of divorce.

A surprisingly large number of horses at the Killer Feedlots go there accompanied by their papers showing they have been extremely well-bred.  Bad things (divorce, owner illness, etc.) happen to good horses.
