Seriously, this is a bump. Ya'll need to go check this out. The last time fernie fox went, the prices were REALLY low! The lovely registered TB mare that I ended up with sold there for $210 I believe. I think some babies went for like $75. I bet fernie will remember, she wrote it all down.
You folks who are just itching to rescue something and CBER is too far away - please consider this! The auction actually benefits the Florida Sherriff's Youth Ranch, so in addition to doing something good for a horse, you'll be doing something good for the kids! You will not be lining the pockets of a dealer.
I am available to go get a beastie (or two) and warehouse it for a time while shipping is worked out if anyone needs that kind of help.
Fernie: if you're going, could you grab pics of the following?

I thought about letting some of the CBER folks know about the auction. They are paying more than what these guys will probably go for and then some people are paying to ship.
Maybe some of the southern folks there would be willing to shift focus down here for a while. Any ideas on how to politely ask them about it? I don't want to post directly on the CBER thread because I mostly just lurk.
Fernie-since we have quite a few Southerners who wish they were closer to CBER to help.. something like, "Southerners, here's your chance to rescue a good soul" or "Southerners-auction horses need your help-many wonderful ones to choose from", or "Florida horse auction this Sat-horses need your help!
Just a thought...
It's so great that you are on top of this. Thank you .
Fernie.... I am sorry to say that we can't adopt any horses but we can offer help to anyone who does and needs a place to keep a horse for a few days. I can also offer my truck and trailer to get a horse to its new home if there is no other way.....

Hi all, new board member from Florida here! I wish I had the funds for another horse right now but I don't. I am however going to put a link to this thread over on the FLAhorse board that I frequent. I know that the auction has been mentioned over there, but they might be able to get more info by coming to this thread. Have any of you considered forming an actual rescue group/organization like CBER? I worked with a rescue up north for 15 years and miss it. I would like to get involved in saving some lives down here!
