Sigh, well, I did it again! Went to an auction and TIER got another horse in need. Sunshine is an older QH type mare with an old wound on her right rear leg above the coronet band. The wound was not taken care of and as a result proud flesh formed and there is disfigurement. It does not seem to bother her though. It certainly didn't bother the guy who was running her back and forth in the auction. She is almost as thin as Zoe, but that girl did EVERYTHING her rider asked her too! I couldn't stand it...especially since 2 horse traders were having fun with each other and bidding her up.
Once it looked as if the traders had finished their game I bid. I had to raise my bid 3 times to make sure Sunshine would never have to go to another auction. (There went my car insurance payment! )
