What can I say? I couldn’t stand to miss another sale so I decided to make the trip to Mt. Hope for the Mid-Ohio Fall Draft Horse Sale. As always, it was a sight and experience to behold.
The number of horses entered in the sale seemed to out-number sales I had attended in the past. Horses were tied in stalls in all the barns, in tents and stalls were even set up out in the open without a tent to cover them. I had never seen that before. Not to mention the horses that were tied in every possible space in the old barn.
It is hard to really truly get an idea of what the sale is like without being there. Since I had some friends selling horses this time, I decided to video as they walked their horses back to their assigned stalls in the barn after hitching them. The video is shaky because we were walking but it gives you an idea. Actually, this trip was calmer than normal because often horses are going both directions in the aisle while people are trying to walk through at the same time.
As long as everyone keeps enjoying the video and photos I take, I’ll probably keep attending the sale, because it really is a fun and very exciting experience.
Take a look at the photo gallery and video below from the sale.
