Post  Gallamist on Sat Sep 26, 2009 9:55 pm

Anyone here go today and stay till the end?

Over 200 head of horses went through today for dirt cheap. They couldn't even get 500 for a well broke horse....pretty sad!

Did anyone go to the Tofield sale this past Saturday? What were the prices like? I need to buy a few colts in a couple months to eat down some grass in the yard so hopefully I can still get a good deal on some environmental lawn mowers!!

Do horse sales often end up like that? I'm just wondering because I was looking at a horse that was priced at $7500 but they just signed him to a sale and I was wondering if the price will turn up low like that or if it all has to do with the sale you are at. Thanks

It all depends on the sales. You can do like these little town auctions, where you can place a reserve on your horse in case your worried of low offers, horse going to meat, etc. But there are also sales like the rancher sales, where the horses you see there are trained for ranching, there all cutters and ropers, etc. and the people at those sales are the ranchers looking for ranch horses so the horse is more likely to bring in that price and unlikely to go to meat as I'm also pretty sure the meat guys aren't allowed at those ones.

So it all depends on the sale he put him in.

At tofield I find most end like that. The last horses to go through are ones that the owners rarely walk them into the ring to show how good they are, they are usually the BYB's herds, horses that haven't been handled much or sometimes they are unclaimed that the local wildlife guys have found. These horses usually nobody wants to buy or don't want to pay much for and usually the meat man won't go over $400 for them but most don't want to pay that for these ones. Unfortunely alot of times they all go to meat as in this case here.

I need a couple horses to keep my boy company come spring when our fence is done and I bring him home.... I would love to buy from the auction as I want something cheap but I will have no corrals out there yet so buying something young concerns me. If they are not quiet and halter broke how will I ever catch them for vaccinations or for sale later in fall as I cannot afford to buy a ton of bales throughout the winter. I only need them as we have 20 acres of pasture land that needs to be grazed down as the previous owner ran cattle and horses over 3 years ago so the pasture has become quite over grown. I am debating on auction horses or spending a bit more and getting another broke gelding as a backup/partner for my husband to ride. I guess I have time to decide as have to wait for the ground to thaw enough for the posts to get pounded.

Well ones who are halter broke do come through and they usual find good homes at reasonable prices as well. You'll just have to keep your eyes open.
