#120 Norma Jean - 14yr Palomino Quarter Horse Mare - $600

Norma Jean is a gorgeous mare who is said to be broke for anyone to ride, including kids and older people. The previous owner said she came up lame about 4-5 months ago. They had pulled her shoes and turned her out after that. They said their boys lost interest anyway, so they took her to the sale. Norma Jean was sold as unsound and did seem tender in the front, but did not have any issue trotting and galloping around her pen area. Norma Jean did seem nervous in the back pen area after the auction, but did seem to do better once turned out in the larger area with 2 other mares. I did not tape her, but she stands at least 15hh and has a nice solid build.

#121 Natalie Wood - 22yr Gray Quarter Horse Mare - $400

Registered as with AQHA - Papers Unknown Natalie Wood is said to be a 22 year old QH mare, Doc Bar and Peppy San bred, who is sold as grade with no papers available. She was broke to ride years ago but has been a broodmare ever since. They said she is good natured, good tempered, and hauls quiet and extremely well. The previous owners noted that she can be hard to catch and will kick if startled. She was pretty calm in the pen in the back after auction and did well when turned out with the other horses. Her hooves do need trimming but from what I could see, she did not appear to have any soundness issues. I did not handle her much and once she was turned out she was adjusting to her new environment and did not want to be caught. She did lead well and seemed to handle well on the ground in the ring and leading her into the back pen. I would guess her to stand approx 15hh.

#127 Nell - 15yr Sorrel Paint Mare - $400

Registered as "Dominate Sistah" with APHA - Papers Available Nell (registered as Dominate Sistah) ran through auction with no further information other than being lame. Dominate Sistah's pedigree top side reads like a whose-who of AQHA halter horses. Her sire is Dominate Venture who was a 2000 AQHA World Show Top 10 Yearling Stallion. He is by Dominate Clue (ROM Halter, 1998 AQHA World, 1997 AQHA Congress, 11 x Grand Champion), who is by Kid Clu (ROM Halter, Reserve World Champion, Top 10 AQHA Halter Champion, etc). Her dam's side includes both Halter and Performance. Her maternal grandsire is Lil Abner with 20 APHA points in Halter and 29 in Performance (Barrels, Reining, Poles, Trail, and more), then Snazzy Boy (18 APHA Halter Points, 24 APHA Performance Points, ROM is Racing) and other racing Quarter Horses. Dominate Sistah herself has her Register of Merit (ROM) in Halter and carries 11 APHA Halter points. She has had 4 APHA foals (all solid). Photos of her fetlock area are attached for your viewing. I do not know the cause of her issue, but she is swollen and seems to have dropped fetlocks. In my opinion she will never be sound and will need pain and inflammation management. She is so incredibly sweet, handles like the show horse she was, and seems so willing. She would need to be vetted to see what is going on and if she can be maintained comfortably for her. She also has what appears to be a sarcoid on her ear and an injury to her front foot as pictured which was fresh and looked superficial. She stands approx 15'2hh and is a beautiful mare.

#129 Neil Diamond - 16yr Bay Quarter Horse Type Gelding - $400

Neil is said to be in the 15-18 year age range, and his teeth appear to me to be in the younger end of the spectrum. He was started when he was younger, but never finished. He came in with #130, his pony mare friend and is said to be a protector of small horses and ponies by his previous owner. He is easy to handle, loves attention, leads well, and didn't appear to me to have any visible issues. I would estimate him to stand approx 14'2hh and he looked to be in decent body condition. His back hooves are past due for trimming and will need clean up. Neil picked up his feet easily, loved attention, and was very friendly.

#130 Nancy Sinatra - 12yr Bay Quarter Pony Mare - $400

Nancy is an adorable pony who is said to be 12 years old and was sold as a project pony. She stands about 13'2hh and looked to be in good body condition. Her hooves looked to be in decent condition and she was able to be handled for trims previously. She was worked with when she was younger in the round pen and their grandson has been on her, but I don't think she was formally trained to ride. She does have what looks to be minor stringhalt, but did not appear to have any other issues that I saw. Nancy is very friendly, loves attention, and seemed to have an in your pocket type personality. She is a doll, easy to lead, and very gentle on the ground.

#134 Nadine - 14yr Bay Thoroughbred Mare - $500

Nadine Is said to be a 14-15 year old TB mare who was ridden through auction. She is easy to handle on the ground and leads well. She rode well through auction but not much was said about her. I do not have history or an ID on her at this time. Her hooves are cracked, chipped, and do need a trim badly. She has an injury to her face as shown, and looks like she may have also had a previous injury or a halter that had been left on leaving a bump on her nose area. She seems like a very kind and gentle mare and might make a great trail horse partner. I did not tape her but would estimate her to be about 15hh.

AVAILABLE!

Orpheus - 8yr White Paint Gelding - $500

Orpheus was led through the Everson auction yesterday. He is said to be an 8 year old APHA gelding but does not have his papers so is selling as grade. He stands about 15.3 hands and weighs about 1100lbs. He is said to be green broke to ride, and I should know more about that after his evaluation. I was not able to attend the auction, so have not seen him in person. The information I have came from a Craigslist ad, which I don't have a copy of. *UPDATE* This is a sweetheart of a horse! He came right up to me in the pasture, and handled fairly well on lead. He walked forward fine, and stopped more or less when I did. He needed some encouragement to back up, but he did it. I also put a shawl on his head to see how he would react and while he wasn't a huge fan of it, all he did was try to shake it off. Then when I dropped it on the ground he picked it up in his teeth and played with it. He wasn't pushy, except for when I scratched his forehead (it was itchy) and was respectful of my space. There were cars coming and going in the driveway, and he was a bit worried about that. He didn't really want to/couldn't focus on me while that was going on, so we just stood for a few minutes and he was fine. I would say that while he has potential, he's not a kid or beginner safe riding horse right now. I put him on the longe line and he definitely knows how to longe - I tried to get a video, but the sun reflected off of my phone and scared him. He has an amazing extended trot (would look great in English tack, just saying) and he seems sound at the walk and trot. The footing in the pasture wasn't great, so I didn't ask for a canter. As far as physical attributes he stands about 15.2-15.3 hands and has a very nice, solid build. He has pretty brown eyes, though the right eye has a bit of blue in it - I don't know if that's just the color, an old injury, or what, but it doesn't seem to bother him. To summarize, this is a gorgeous horse with a really nice personality who really should not be where he is. With some training he should be able to do just about anything.
