Hello Ironbender,

While it's been MANY years ago, I use to go to the BLM Mustang horse sales in Rock Springs, WY. and Delta, UT

https://www.blm.gov/adoptahorse/index.php

Back in the day it cost $25 Today I think that it's $125

I think that I bought about 20 of them as a high school kid. Broke em, sold em, and did it again.

Been several years, but we enjoyed it for the atmosphere if nothing else. Several characters hanging around in 1800's styled garb etc...
They did have some nice horses go through, and I believe Jake Clark might have run some of his mule's through.

And on second thought, the mule sale I'm thinking of might have been a different venue:)

Got the brochure (not sure how) and don't recall any mules.

Fair number of draft crosses, though no real interest in them.

Just wondering if anyone has been as we are toying with the idea of going.

Ironbender as a rule I'm not one to recommend auctions but if you're considering it might want to look at Billings sales as well.

Ditto.

I'm not much of a horse person anymore. But the rep on the billings sale is as good as it gets for a consignment horse sale.

Thanks. We have an 'agent' with a good reputation at the Billings sale now with instructions. We'll see how that turns out.

Good luck with that IB. If you pick one up let us know and share your fun. Might want to hedge your bet and get some xrays Monday morning while still covered.
