I had originally planned to and know of a couple other people that are going, but I am going to wait for the LynnCliff dispersal instead in November. I saw the dwarfs too; at least this time they're listed as dwarfs.

Are several openly identified as dwarfs? Yes, but I disagree that all dwarfs that go through that auction are properly identified. (I wish they still had pictures available from the last auction.)

Taylor Jo, here's the link to the next auction: http://www.lollibros.com/minihrse.htm

I found it in my Journel June/July issue, Macon, Mo about 3.5 hrs from me. But, it doesn't have any AMHR/ASPC's like I want listed so I won't go, I'd be to tempted to come home w/ something I didn't need. I'd feel sorry for one or two and they're I'd be. TJ

They lady only lists what the owners say. YOu cant call something a dwarf just by pics or with out the owner saying so. HOw would you like it if you were to consign a horse and they listed that it was a dwarf, blind and crippled if it wasnt??????

I have been to this sale several times. Every dwarf is announced as so when it comes in the ring. I am sick of people bashing this sale.

If you really look at the picture the saddle is sitting on a handkerchief. It is clearly there for decoration because it is way to small, not for kids to get on and ride. If she was used at birthday parties, I am sure it was as a petting zoo type thing. That wouldn't be so bad if the dwarf was healthy, it maybe even enjoyed it.

That saddle is so small.....I doubt if even Whipflash the Taco Bell monkey could fit on it. It looks more like a prop/decoration.

When I started this thread, I wasnt bad mouthing anyone.. I really wanted to know WHO was going? There were some nice horses listed.

I just said there are some dwarfs listed. I dont like that someone is making money off of these dwarfs and they will probably go the highest-I hear this happens all the time. It is just irresponsible to sell them for big bucks and toot the they are sooooooo cute and can do parties and such. If I bred a dwarf I would either keep them or GIVE them to someone who devotes themselves to dwarfs like the couple here on this forum-sorry cant remember their names...

It bothers me that people will do anything to make a buck these days. Now I would really commend them if on the auction site it said dwarfs for FREE to anyone who will love and care for them til they cross the rainbow bridge no matter when that might be...

If people see them for sale or auction for high prices then they will TRY to breed a dwarf, which IMO is not right... Its that anything to make a buck thinking...

I think the horse sell today. I know someone who was down for the exotic end of it and he said that there was no one there. If you took the crowd X3 there still wouldn't have been anyone there. Prices on the exotics were cheap, really cheap except for the camels they were bringing about what they should have.

I do know someone who went to the sale. She said definately a buyers market. Registered horses going for $300, $400, etc. But there were a few that went for $1000 & up. She also said that there were quite a few registered colts (I can't remember if she said weanlings or yearlings) all were pinto's that went for $25 - $75 each. I asked why so cheap - she thought they were nice looking just didn't have the "known" bloodlines in them. I had my eye on a small mare and my friend purchased her for me: she is AMHA 29 1/4", black/white pinto, and is still to have a foal this fall and she was purchased very reasonably $400.

I asked her about the dwarfs and she said she hated to watch them as they went for pretty high $. The one that everyone is talking about with the saddle on it - she said they had a young toddler/baby that they sat in the saddle - and she too hated to see that.

Any auction owner who wants to have a respectable reputation would simply not allow that to happen.

They do not need to let just anyone or anything come thru their auction. I blame them as much as the owner perhaps more -they have no excuse they do know better!

Guess it's good I didn't go--according to the info my top pick wasn't there anyway. Sounds like some good buys on the Ramaker horses. Congrats on yours kmh.

Thanks RockRiver......we are very pleased with our new Ramaker filly. Her sire is Perfecta @ Buck On Ranch. I have always admired that Wardance line and now we finally have it in our herd.

We are looking forward to showing her in 2009.

Steph
