    A bit of a spin-off from this thread:

    It would appear that these riders SERIOUSLY want foamy...

    Are they all sired by the same donk? I wonder if someone is breeding Mammoth Jacks with auction trots ?:D
  3. The number of horses who did not sell far...

    The number of horses who did not sell far outnumbered those who did.

    I would not call this event much of a success.

    #28 sold, and (IMHO) somebody got a steal. 3yr old Liberty Gold filly o/o a...

    The word auction here in the US seems to conjure up "rejects", "bottom barrel deals", etc. Where as in Europe auctions are prestigious and usually garner good prices, are well attended, etc. Does...
  5. Online WB auctions -- will they ever catch on?

    Ok, last year RPSI had the first ever online foal auction. Results were not horrid, but certainly nothing that would compel me (as a breeder) to offer my foals in the next event.

    I would have to agree that the number of horses a breeder produces has no bearing in how they price their young stock OR their ability to accurately evaluate those horses. This depends more on the...

    As JB notes, we need more info. But off the top of my head, I'd say "Get a better handler." Any handler knows that when you are working with a chain you don't just "hang on" because every horse will...

    Actually, THAT is not what I was trying to express. The per pound quote came from a friend who was there...I haven't bought a horse by the pound since I was a kid.

    I found that the term "hot" like the term "green" has many, many different interpretations. It's not like there is an actual definitive definition of "hot" written down somewhere.

    Some 40 horses just went through a local auction to be sold for $1.51 per pound. Here are some of their pics. Pretty much most of them were sound, had fairly correct conFORmation (not conFIRmation)...

    Twenty-three horses have won both the Derby & the Preakness only to fall short in the Belmont. Since the point is to win all three,...

    ^^^^Exactly!! It's sort of "chicken vs egg", but if the SPORT was changed to put more emphasis on stamina, longer distances and longer careers, then breeders would follow suit.

    I thought the tagline on the website said PSG. But I-1 is even better. Hopefully next year he will send some of his hopefuls to compete on the world stage.

    Agree with Siegi. And DeNiro is another who used to be great, but no one is having much luck with his current stuff since they change the protocol.

    It's not suppose to be doing much...and this sort of thing is easier with a horse who is uber-sensitive...and most Akhal Tekes are. That can be both a gift and a burden for the rider.;)
