It was the monthly Saturday night Auction at Mike's Livestock Auction.  TIER was contacted by a TIER supporter and old friend of Carol Darnell (whom we miss dearly since her passing in November 2013) about an aged Arabian at the auction.  This person wished to help purchase the 22 yr. old Arabian gelding named Bey Rogue in Carol's honor if he could be brought to TIER.
Since we were not in attendance at the auction, TIER contacted Trish G. of Forgotten Horses Rescue whom we knew was at the auction and asked if she could help facilitate the purchase of this horse if he went for a reasonable price.  TIER is low on funds and hay is due to be delivered tomorrow (4k).  The donor pledged 100 and Bey Rogue sold for 180.
Thanks to our donor, Forgotten Horses for facilitating the purchase and the gentleman who hauled Bey Rogue to TIER.
Carol Darnell, this one is in memory of all your efforts for the Arabian breed and the old campaigners that need a soft place to land.  I miss you lady.
He was understandably nervous after a full day/night at the auction with all the goings on there.  He overnighted at the auction and I'm sure there was a lot of commotion, horses being moved, people going hither and yon.  Bey Rogue stepped off the trailer a little anxious but willing to listen to his handler.  He was placed in a corral and shortly thereafter settled in to eat and drink.
What a stunning horse with those big liquid eyes and lovely manners.
