WELL THIS STORY STARTS ABOUT 1 YR. AGO WHEN WE SOLD A WEANLING COLT AT A LOCAL AUCTION. HE WENT VERY CHEAP BUT TO SOME VERY GOOD PEOPLE WHO GOT INTO SHOWING MINI'S A FEW YEARS AGO. THE WIFE HAD TO BEG THE HUSBAND INTO BUYING THIS COLT BUT WAS SUCCESSFUL. THEY TOOK HIM AND LET HIM GROW UP THIS YEAR, SHOWED HIM IN A FEW LOCAL SHOWS WHERE HE DID VERY WELL. THEN THEY PUT HIM WITH A TRAINER OUT OF TEXAS AND LAST WEEKEND THIS COLT WON GRAND CHAMPION JR. STALLION AT THE REGIONALS. THEY WERE SO EXCITED WITH THE WIN! AND ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO NATIONALS. THEY TOLD US THEY EVEN TURNED DOWN A BLANK CHECK FOR HIM. IF FACT, SEVERAL OF THE TRAINERS WERE ASKING WHO WERE HIS PARENTS AND WHO OWNED THEM.---

THEY INFORMED THEM THAT WE (ROCKING M FARM) OWNED THE 20 YR. OLD MOTHER AND SHE COULDN'T BE BOUGHT, AND THAT THEY DIDNT' KNOW FOR SURE WHO OWNED THE SIRE.-----WELL YESTERDAY, THEY LOCATED THE OWNER OF THE SIRE, VISTED HIM AND BOUGHT THE SIRE TO KEEP ANYONE ELSE FROM BUYING HIM.(THEY WANT TO BREED HIM BACK TO OUR MARE FOR A FUTURE BROTHER/SISTER).

SO YOU CAN BUY A GOOD SHOW HORSE AT AUCTION AT REASONABLE PRICES,IT JUST TAKES A GOOD EYE AND OH YEAH LIKE ALAN JACKSON'S SONG SAYS IT JUST TAKES MONEY!

[SIZE=14pt]Yes you can buy a good horse at an auction.... I sold a show stallion the son of a national champion at the Mt Airey sale...! I also know that some had bought hhorses from that sale before that went on to become national top ten horses.[/SIZE]

You certainly can get a good horse at an auction. I got my daughters gelding

at Sweetwater several years ago. He had all his hall of fame points [and ch wins]

as a yearling. He won the amatuer incentive at area 1, and has gone supreme.

Had you seen him when I bought him you would have thought I lost my mind.

He has made national top 10 several years in row and most important he is an

awesome youth horse. Linda B
