Sorry I wasn't able to post last night, we were at the auction until after 9pm. We got there around 9am, so it was a very long day. There were over 400 horses run through!
We were only able to save 11 of them. We spent just over $3,000, all of the Slaughter Fund and more.
We got some very nice horses, most aged 9-18, we did thin white Arab mare, and a thin TB gelding with swollen front legs. He went for $100.00. We also got some very nice dude string Quarter Horse types who will make wonderful horses for people who are looking to adopt. I will post pics and more info later, but for now we need to go back and load up four of them to head back to Vegas for the long drive home. The other seven will be hauled to Vegas by a hauler from Fallon, they should arrive in the next few days.
It was an exhausting and difficult day for all of us. Eleven of four hundred ihardly seems like a drop in the bucket, but it makes a difference to those eleven who were able to save. Still, it's hard to think of the ones we had to leave behind.
Huge thanks to everyone who has pitched in for this auction save!
