    It has been a while since the last COTH auction and I have noticed there are a few threads about horses in need and people starting their own charity bidding threads---sooooo is it time for another?

    Thoughts?

    I was thinking that another goods auction would be a great idea, too. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif I've got a few things I'd like to donate, but I wasn't sure how things were operating now, since Freebird sent out an email a week or so ago saying that she didn't plan on having another auction for a while. She's the head admin. for the auction board, so I figured if that's what she stated, then that was it.

    I'd love to be part of another one. I liked the one Freebird did where either you or the offeror got to choose where the proceeds went to. This way no one group or individual felt left out.

    I may even be talked into offering my classic saddle: Stalker Crowne-Parisian.

    I'd love to see a few choices listed, such as CBER (feedlot horses going to slaughter), CANTER. Some folk smay not have a specific rescue in mind and if we just had a few we could make a larger impact as a group. Just a thought.

    Here is the complete list of Horse Charities that our auctions have supported in the past. The only caveat is that the organization must be 501(c)3 registered.

    Sorry guys - I just now saw this thread!

    I would LOVE to have another auction, for sure!

    lee. - I didn't mean that all auctions in the near future were off, I just wasn't ready to have one any time soon when I wrote that email because not everything went so smoothly in the Stallion Auction, so it left me a bit frustrated, and with a bad Auction taste in my mouth, I guess.

    Chocomare: I agree. I like it where the person donating the item gets to choose where the $$ goes towards, that way, as you said, no one org. gets left out.

    How about everyone post their thoughts either here or over on our Auction BB, and lets all try and get something started in the near future?

    Yippee! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif So what time-frame are folks up for? Obviously, a bit of time to post items, which allows for browsing (2-3 weeks?), and then the actual live-bid period, which would probably be a week, based on past auction practice.

    I've got a Picture Trail account, which I set up for the stallion auction so we wouldn't have to deal with the auction forum site's habit of blocking photos in listings that were coming from another domain. This happened with F.E. Copper Top, little Duke, and a couple of others, and I got so frustrated with it that I anted up for the premium membership so I wouldn't have the photos blocked anymore.
    http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif So...if folks have photos of items they want to list, you're more than welcome to email them to me to upload so we can make the listings a bit snazzier with photos of the items folks can bid on. Just a thought....

    Seems kind of yucky, doesn't it?

    For anyone that's not familiar with the Auction Forum, check out the board at: COTH Auction Bulletin Board

    Super! Thanks, Cindi, and thank you 17htb. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_razz.gif

    Anyone else who's donated in the past wish to step forward with something? And you Greenies and Training Level folks that have never participated before...want to get involved? And would a few hard-working and reliable individuals like to step up to be moderators for the auction? http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif
