How to buy a Horse from SlaughterA Slaughter horse. How do I buy a Slaughter horse?
Things you should know.......
Wish more folks would hop in their trucks and go to their on-site bidding, top a kill buyer and pick up a happy horse. These are some easy steps to get you on your way into an action-packed quest that can make a difference in your world. Find a specific item first. In essence, these sales are an opportunity for the owner to free himself from the cost of an undesirable horse.
Usually the owner sells the horse to a retailer who takes it to the market. Horsemen and traders are creating a bumper for horse lovers, so that they do not have to be subjected to the horror of auctioning and battle management. Years ago I purchased a horse from Kneeneland Thoroughbred Racing Sales.
When you are at a low-end bidding, you can look forward to a horse with a ragged holster and a guide rope made of heather. Usually I have two full haybags and a pail of corn to help the horse with loading or to make quick buddies with a new mule.
Lung out. It' s astonishing to me that most auction horses with a "GET ME OUT OF HERE" setting are willing to hop on the trail. Just in case I'm wearing a lunging line to help me with the loading. It is also sometimes useful to see a horse move on a longe before you make a bet.
You may be fortunate at some auction and find an area to quickly see a horse on a longe. I will also be bringing a 10 g allon box for each horse. When you fill a large pail (8 QT) and your horse only takes a drink, it is not simple to fill the rest back into the 10 galon canister.
When your horse is very athirsty, you may only need to fill him more than once. Unless you rely on your own vet knowledge, please be aware that an approved vet will be present at each anuctions. Many will give you fast on horseback prior to bidding.
Ace was only used once at an online sale when a tyre exploded on my car just before the George Washington Bridge. Travelling alone with three ponies and lying on a bustling highway also made me jumpy, so I decided to give the thoroughbred a CC from Ace, which seemed to reassure us both while AAA was changing my tyre.
As soon as the horse is full, you will want to keep going and your only stop will be for throttle and aquatic herds. I' m suggesting we come to the sale an extra minute. Take a ride and look at the holding ponies. Bring a memo map to record the horse's hips and memos about each horse.
Unfortunatly there is no numeric order through the ring. Pay attention to each horse you want to bet on, as you never know when it will appear in the ring. Remember again and again that YOU are NOT ACCOUNTABLE for a horse participating in an event - spare what you can afford to spare, but don't try to get involved in an emotive commandment to rescue a horse that isn't fit to be saved.
Please remember: you must take home, take home, take home, take home, take home. When a horse with" autographed paperwork" shows up in the ring, it means that it has not been given any carcinogen (Ivermectin/Wormer or Bute/Banamine) for at least six month. Usually there is also a group of "loose horses" - the wildcard herd.
They are a mix of age and schooling. Those ponies, so undesirable that no one would bother to see if they were broken or broken to go riding. They' re hunted into a ring (loose), all have their signatures and are immediately sold to the killer.
One of these "Loose Horses" I once purchased at the Billings, Montana Auctions. "Wallace " was a little frightened at first, but two years later he was selling himself as a military policeman for $25,000. For Wallace, I'm always anxious to consider the Lose Horse pen. When a horse has pulled a marking through his hips, it means that he has already been selling.
There is no information about the sale of the horse at the auctions. But if you want to save a particular horse, stay close by. Someday someone will move the horse. When it is a kill buyer, they often offer you the horse for a small gain, other time they will give you the horse for a big gain.
$160 over the $160 for a horse once bought to a killer. A further consideration is that each of the "Fangreiter" jumps on a horse for $20. When considering a lose horse or a buyback from a kill buyer, mark one of the horsemen riding in the ring during the bid.
It gives you a complete evaluation of a horse while you are watching from the sideline. One of them turned out to be VERY bankrupt, the other not so much. Fangreiter declared that the "not so much" horse was probably a floating horse and in the course of times a beautiful horse to ride.
It was just right and now I have a lovely young horse riding and driving! Keep in mind that any horse sold for less than $700 is at stake for slaughter (although the price varies according to offer and demand). We do not slaughter colts, sightless ponies and weaners under six month.
Elder gray horse soil does not deliver for slaughter, but younger gray horse soil does. Miniature hippos slaughter, mule butcher.
