Kill Pen Horses

Current Yakima County Horses
Hidden Treasure - Red Roan QH Mare - $400

This sweet gal has been a career broodmare and may once again be bred. She is at least halter broke, leads well, and usually likes attention. She did not want to be caught to be evaluated but I have spent time with her in the past and she is a gentle and manageable mare. I will try and get an age on her when I go back, but if memory serves me right she is in her early teens. She stands about 14'3hh and although she could use some tlc, she is in decent condition.

Helena - Chestnut Arabian Mare - $400

This shy mare has been at the feedlot for some time. Helena came in thin and has gained weight. She appears to be a young Arabian but nothing is known about her and we do not have any history. She is possibly bred and has been exposed to a stallion. She is a beautiful mover and appears to be sound. I have not handled her as she has not wanted to be caught. Helena stands about 14'1-2hh. She has had a bit of eye goop probably resulting from hair in her eye but I have not been able to catch her to clean her eye. Her hooves are overdue for a trim, as would be expected.

Fanny and France - Black/Gray Mare - $500

Fannie and France are a mare and filly pair that are being sold together. Fanny is smaller, around 13'3h and under 10 years old is what I am guessing by looking at her teeth. She has a bump on the right side of her face that may be dental related. France is said to be crossed with an Andalusian. Both appear to be sound. Fanny is said to be broke to ride but I do not know the last time she was ridden or what level rider she would take. The filly has halter marks and the mare also seems okay to handle but is not very cooperative about her mouth.

Hold on 3/19/2014

#924 Fox - 11yr Chestnut Gelding - $450

Fox was ran through auction loose and is listed per member request. He stands about 14'2-3hh and has a slight sway back. He is very easy to handle, friendly, and loves attention. He will follow you around and loves to be scratched. He pics up his feet, tolerates weight, and has a mellow personality. He gets along well with horses and is generally very easy going.

She was reported to be greenbroke, but we only saw her led around. She is a little thin and has halter marks on her face. In the ring she moved very oddly and it appeared to be in both her front and hind end. Out back she was very reluctant to move at all and seemed to be in pain. She does have a crack in her right front but other then that there was nothing we could visually see wrong with her. She stands about 14.3hh and was well mannered.

#216 If Only - 4yr Black Donkey Mare - $200

This donkey jenny is black and appears to be around 4 years old and stands about 13hh. #216 and #217 came in as a pair and were run through the auction loose. These donkeys are perhaps a bit underweight, but their main problem is their feet. I don't think that their hind feet have ever been trimmed and they are extremely bad. The feet are very long and twisted and I'm not sure that there isn't permanent damage. Both donkeys were extremely scared at the auction and do not appear to be used to people. I was able to put a halter on both of them, but I don't think that they are halterbroke. I was also able to pick up the front feet of both donkeys, but they kick badly about their back feet. I do not think these girls have ever been handled much at all and they seemed to be very afraid. They let me handle them but it seemed to be more out of fear then anything else and they did not really relax even when just been petted and scratched.

This mare is super sweet and friendly. She is cute and very typey and stands around 14.3hh although she seemed smaller because she is dainty. She does pick up her feet but wasn't great about it.

#208 Indiana - 7yr Varnish POA Mare - $400

This varnish POA mare was probably once a bay with a snowcap. She is reported to be 7 years old and her teeth look consistant with that. She has a good build, was in good shape and appears to have been taken care of other then a little rain rot on her back. She was reported to be a family pet and no information was given about her being broke to ride. She is extremely friendly, but was a bit pushy and rude. She led nicely but she did not like being in the stall and was impatient for someone to take her out. She has appy eyes, but they appear to be perfectly fine.

This chestnut mare was said to be 16 years old, however her teeth look younger to us - possibly around 11 years old. She is either a Quarter Horse or a breeding stock Paint. She is slightly underweight and her feet are a bit long, but overall she seems to be in pretty good condition. She does have a scar on her left hind hock but it didn't seem to bother her, although we only saw her at a walk. She stands about 15hh and is a flaxen chestnut with three socks and a blaze. He was very calm and good to handle other then she did not like her teeth looked at. She was said to be broke to ride, but to have been at pasture for 3 years and so needing a tune up. Her tail hair has been chopped off.

Sold on 4/8/2014
#215 Immortal - 10yr Black Friesian Cross Gelding - $500

This big black gelding was brought in with no history other than that he bucked his owner off. He does have white scars from a cinch, so it is obvious that he has indeed been ridden. He stands about 15.2hh and we are guessing him to be around 10-12 years old. He looks to be a Friesian crossbreed, but of course that is just judging from his appearance. He is very good looking, with a nice build, cute head, and slight feathers. He was very well mannered and responsive. He was calm and respectful at all times and did everything that we asked him to do. Leads, ties, backs, picks up feet, yields quarters, etc.

Holly Berry - 18yr Bay QH Type Mare - $350

Holly Berry stands about 14'3hh and is in need of some tlc. She has been bred by a bay stallion with 4 white socks. She is said to be an 18 year old kids horse and well broke to ride. No one has ridden her at the feedlot. She came in thinner but has been gaining weight at the feedlot, was wormed with Ivermectin at a 500 lb dose two weeks ago, and is currently on grain and alfalfa away from the general population.

Herman - 29yr Black QH Gelding - $350

Registered as with AQHA - Papers Unavailable Herman is said to be broke to ride and a kids horse who has many miles under him and a lifetime brand card because he was taken all over on the trails. His AQHA reg. # is 2351969 ID 0886924. He was sold as a 2 year old in 1987 and has been with the same people ever since is what I was told. I would expect him to have some age related arthritis, but he did not have visible lameness issues. He has been at the feedlot gaining weight since these pictures were taken a week ago, but he will need some tlc and a farrier appointment for his overgrown hooves. He stands about 14'3hh. Herman picks up his feet, is easy to handle, and had a pleasant attitude.

Sold on 4/8/2014 to Alicia
Hoofsie - 6yr Strawberry Roan QH Type Mare - $400

Hoofsie has not only stolen my heart, but just about everyone else's that comes to the lot. Her hooves are a mess. I'm listing her because so many people have requested and because I think she would be a great farrier project. She has one foot that is apparently clubbed and the other front hoof is very long. She actually walks okay and even trots with ease despite the horrible condition of her feet. Hoofsie stands about 14'2hh and is at a good weight and otherwise appeared healthy. She came with a group of horses that were said to be broke to ride but I do not know if it applies to her and hope that she wasn't ridden in her condition. Hoofsie is very sweet, gentle enough for anyone to handle, and will give you her feet when you reach for them. She doesn't mind if you lay with her while she's napping and seems to be very trusting of people.

Sold on 4/4/2014
Hug Me Henry - 30yr Black QH Type Gelding - $100

Hug Me Henry ran through auction and no one wanted him. I evaluated him after auction and he really deserves a chance to find a home and retire. He still has quite a bit of spunk left and is in really condition for his age despite needing weight. He looks like he has all of his teeth and they are in good condition for his age. He actually looks pretty sound and his joints aren't too bad. Overall, he's a nice boy and behaved quite well even in the chaos of arriving at the feedlot. He has saddle marks on his sides and his feet are overdue for a trim. He is not in with the general population and his fee is to cover his coggins, transport, and feed. He has no ship date but the lot is no where for him to be.

Sold on 4/2/2014 to Melanie
Francisco - Chestnut QH Type Gelding - $400

Franciso seems like a been there done that horse with a lot of miles on him. He is easy to handle, and appears to be sound from what I could see.

Sold on 3/31/2014
Ford - 10yr Bay QH Gelding - $550

This is a nice horse! Ford stands about 15'2hh and has a very stocky build. He is said to be a broke to ride solid trail horse in the 10 year age range. He was very well behaved and had nice manners except for not wanting his mouth touched. He appears to have some sores from an ill-fitting bit which may have been why he did not want his mouth touched, He picks up his feet and his hooves appear to have been well maintained. Overall, he is in good condition, appears to be sound, and gentle enough for a beginner to handle. He can easily carry a larger rider and is ready to be your next steady trail horse.
