Central City, Nebraska Auction Report
6 June 2010

The sale was pretty small, only 17 horses.  Seemed like mostly families although I am not sure about #42.  It is possible that he was buying for resale.  I did see one of the kill buyers from the Norfolk auction there, but I donít believe he bought anything (I donít even think he stayed for the whole auction).  Two of the horses were brought in by a young man that I have seen at the Norfolk and OíNeill auctions.  I believe he may have bought two horses to train and resale.  He also no saled his two horses (I suspect they will turn up at a later, larger auction). 

Over all the horses were in pretty decent condition although many were in need of hoof trims.  There were a couple of thin, wormy looking horses, but they were not the worst I have ever seen (the two young fillies were by far the worst, but I believe the gentleman that bought them for his granddaughter/daughter will do a good job with them even though they werenít what he came there for (he was bidding on the kid broke horses).  After he purchased them, he ran to the local feed store to buy halters, leads, feed, dewormers, etc.). 

There were a couple that had lameness issues, but only one looked like it might have been serious enough to prevent riding.  There wasnít a single mention of what happened to any of them.  I donít believe any of them were close enough to another horse to have been kicked, but it could have happened in the trailer or in the pen.  The worst of the group (grey gelding) seemed to walk on his injured leg fine, but it was just at a very odd angle.  I donít believe that he would have been ridable, but he did seem pasture sound.

The pens didnít have any water or hay in them.  The horses all arrived just before the tack sale which ran first.  The tack auction ran for two hours and the horse auction itself ran about the same amount of time, maybe just a bit longer.

I am so glad that I was able to have Jennifer go with me to the auction.  She helped me get the descriptions of the horses and to figure out what the final sale price and buyer numbers were.  She also acted as a great blocker so that no one would see me taking photos of the horses in the pens as well as in the stands.  We missed getting pictures of a few of the horses, but we were able to get the majority of them.  I could never have done this without her!
