Unfortunatly a team of 18 yr old Percheron mares, trained to drive double, went for meat, today at the Lindsay auction. The one in the picture that shows entire body is sound, in good condition, friendly, probably around $600 would save her. The mare in the other pic, with part of her body not showing is not currently sound, and I am unsure that she could be ever in the future. She has obviously pulled alot in her time and has blown her front suspensories. She was obviously sore, I find it even more distressing that her owner put her thru this, poor soul. He was present at the auction and he did not look happy that they went for meat. If someone wanted to take a chance on her she could be saved for around $400. I must say that out of 15 horses, only 2 of them are meatbound, this is better than I had expected. I really wish we could save them all but we do have to consider the adoptability of the horses that we save.
There was only one horse at the Woodville auction and she did not go for meat, Yay!
