I attended Waverly last week.....my first Horse Sale. Wow, what an experience! I was only able to be there Wednesday evening and Thursday for Horse Sale. I got to meet Joe, finally, as well as Dave T. I wound up buying one of his nice started colts. I also got a trained team of spotted draft mares. They were the main reason I had gone, in hopes I could get them. Lucky for me, 75% of bidders left by the time they got the spotted drafts. Guess they aren't really popular yet. Unfortunately, the harnesses were sold earlier in the day, so now I have 3 new horses and no harness. I've been trying to get them ordered, but it's taking a while with the voicemail back-and-forth the Amish companies are infamous for. I'm doing ground work and getting to know them, but really looking forward to driving them and trying them out to see how their power compares to our big team. Hopefully they will do what we need, so we can downsize. My spine has been stretched to the max by our 18+ hand boys, so these 16 hand spotted drafts are a breath of fresh air! Photo is my 10 year old daughter practicing her horsemanship skills with one of the new mares.
