8432–nice hock action, flashy…I wanted to put him into my ‘favorites’ but he looked base-narrow in the hind…or maybe just close hocked? Do you see it or is it just me?
BLM actually captured more mustangs than are up in this auction. Mares are MIA, as are the youngsters. Maybe they are not finished putting them up on the site. I’m HOPING they’ll get some mares in there.
But, there is a decent selection already. Good news is everyone seems to go for the paints and appys and roans. So the bays and sorrels/chestnuts/browns are pretty available. I always search on them first and leave the colorfuls to the massive audience for them. Some really nice bays go without much competition for them. My strategy is to bid once, bid high, and not look again until it’s all over. There will always be another auction.
This group of horses will be available for pickup in Colorado. So i may have a road trip in my future? fwiw, BLM has approved my application for up to 8 horses…4 adoption and 4 sale authority.
