[RC] Feedlots and Auctions - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: Belinda Romanuski bj3romanuski@xxxxxxxx or 

Hi.  I am enjoying reading this thread.  We have 13 horses and all have come 
from auctions.  We do not ride endurance, but just trail ride.  Sure we have 
had a few that we resold at the auctions, but we have also had great horses 
that we have resold to other homes and are doing great.  One woman that we know 
purchased one of Khemosabi's last daughters for $250 from an auction.  She does 
have internal problems from an infection so she will never be able to carry a 
foal, but she is very rideable.  Buying from auctions, you have to be able to 
evaluate the horse after you have them and be prepared to resell if it does not 
work out.  Alot of the horses run through have been neglected and underfed for 
a while.  It is not the horses fault.  Last month we purchased an Arab gelding 
for $50, and that included the saddle he was ridden with.  Sure he is walking 
skeleton, but such a sweet disposiion, and great legs and feet.  In a few 
months we will put him under saddle and try him out.  It is a heart breaker to 
see what these grand animals are reduced to.
