Just got word that my mare's younger sister (same dam but full TB) is possibly headed to auction this weekend. Owner will give her away prior, but needs her gone. Has siblings on both sire and dam side eventing... apparently sound, just didn't like the gate.

Which auction is she going to?

Have the connections made any attempt to get her to one of the local rescue/rehoming groups like Circle F or New Stride?

I doubt it. Will send you a PM.

People want her GONE.

She's gorgeous. Hopefully someone will step up to help, and end up with a nice mare.

Ibex, can you PM me more details and I'll post this in the Auction Horses forum? If you are not familiar with it, the group focuses on horses at auctions or at risk of going to auctions/kbs in the PNW.
