AWESOME! Thanks for posting this. I have been searching and searching. We were unable to be there for the auction and was very curious as to what they would go for. As a previous adopter, I am very happy that this has given mustangs so much exposure.

Thanks again,

Christy said...

Oh good! Thanks for posting Tracey! It looks like the trainers I was following all got their babies back!

How does a city buy a horse? Especially for 50,000? I don't quite understand that. Also- do you know what happened to the horses that were part of the makeover but were not present at the competition?

Tracey said...

Amy, finding the results has been frustrating for many folks! Glad you were able to find the blog and read them (barely...golly, can't believe they posted in black!)

Christy, I'm not sure about the horses that weren't there. I suspect they'd have tried to adopt them out just the same. If they didn't find adopters, then they'd likely go back to the facility or stay with their trainers until adopters are found. But...that's just my guess. Not sure how many horses didn't make it.

As for how a city buys a horse? Private donations, I'd think. Sounds like it was a three way deal between the trainer, Mustang Heritage and the City. Pretty cool, eh?

WHEN they do this again (oh I hope they do another one) it would be really great if they could keep their website more up-to-date. Updating the page with a list of winners isn't too much work and updating it with a list of sale amounts would have been nice too.

I've checked their site numerous times today looking for a "Fort Worth was great" post, but so far there is nothing.

Maybe they should give our favorite blogger Tracey a ticket to the next show so she can fill their site with the info that we all NEED!

Tracey said...

LOL, Katee, I've been frustrated with their lack of communication, too =) Well, it's new to them, so perhaps by next year they'll have it a bit more together? But yes, it would have been nice to be able to see the results on their page rather than having to google all over the planet.

Katee said...

Thank goodness for Google!

Tracey said...
