Glimmer  $875

6 - 8 yr old, 17h, blk, Draft mare. This mare was tagged to be shipped last Friday and even with my sobs, whines, cranky complaints I was told she was to be shipped. The seller requested that she be slaughtered because he did not want to harassed by the new buyer. The feedlot owner surprised me and held her back, he called with the great news Sat. Luckily the brand on her did not belong to the seller or she would be long gone! The brand does not belong to the seller so there is no way the seller can be harassed : - ). The feedlot owner contacted the brand owner and told him the situation and that the mare he once owned had been sold to slaughter and I wanted to list her. The old owner and brand holder said no problem and told the feedlot about her history while he owned her. She was used and trained as pack horse and used in the mountains. Later she was trained to ride. She was easy to train and gentle and easy to ride. NO spook, kind and willing. This mare has the kindest eye and a bit of sunblock hair conditioner and she will have her jet black color back. For those looking for a gentle giant here she is!!!!! Her feet are in need of farrier care.

Hooray for your sobs, whines, and cranky complaints, Helen.  She looks like an absolute doll, and a fine ride especially for a larger, unsure rider.

Before we start fielding the questions about why she is priced where she is, perhaps this is a good place for a reminder that the feedlot owner sets the price based on meat prices per pound, and she is, unfortunately, quite heavy and of higher quality meat.   Crying or Very sad

Those were Sam's, sobs,whines and complaints, not mine ...And it must have been magnificent because she rarely mentions the  trouble she finds in getting access to some of these horses. We have to remember that this Feedlot Owner holds a contract with the Canadian Canner so , as long as he only buys horses which meet the new requirements ( which he does), he has a guarenteed market for them. This isn't the same as a KB at an auction or a simple Horse Trader. This guy doesn't need us to sell his horses for him. He allows us access mainly because Sam is willing to accede to his rules. She never gets the credit she deserves for all the work she does, just to get these Babies here, to the board. Thank You Big Time Sam, My Friend!

Dear God,

If I could win the Lotto this week,  I promise to buyout the feedlot and build a rescue stable on the Bueno loop road.

We honor the beauty, artfulness, and grace of your beautiful creations and know you wouldn't want this suffering. I know you're listening God, so thank you in advance.

P.S.  and Sun Dancer needs surgery right away, can you help make that possible too God?  He's really special and you'd make many hearts very joyous!

For this too, I (we) thank you in advance!
