  • Right to Title: Right to title shall not pass to purchaser until the animal has been paid in full and checks have cleared the bank, then they will be mailed to the buyer.
  • Catalog: Every effort has been made to assure correctness of the catalog, however, the seller, sale management and auctioneer are not responsible for errors or omissions. All statements and corrections announced at the time of the sale shall supersede the catalog. All comments stated in the catalog are as stated from the consignors and not the sale management. Again we have made every effort to assure the catalog is correct.
  • Important: Unless stated to the contrary, the owner or representative of each animal shall have the right to bid on his animal selling. A recorded tape will be made of the entire sale which shall be used to settle any disputes regarding statements made about animals while they are in the auction ring. It is the right and responsibility of each potential buyer to attend the preview and observe all animals prior to the sale.

    The sale management or sale hosts assume no responsibility whatsoever to anyone for blemishes, defects, the physical condition, soundness or the health of the horse and makes no warranties or representation of any kind in this sale, except in a case where the seller makes a specific guarantee. In such case, the guarantee is strictly by the seller and not the sale management. Right of recourse must be directed to the seller and not through the sale management. Management acts as agents only. The animals in this sale have NOT been vet checked. Buyers are cautioned to be sure to inspect animals before buying. All animals are sold “AS IS” and there can be no refusal to pay once you have signed the Acknowledgment of Purchase.

    Buyers assume all risk and expenses on horses after the auctioneer has said “sold.” Horses must be removed from place of sale by buyer, by noon June 11, 2017.

    Buyers and spectators are cautioned to be careful while on the grounds and particularly while horses are being sold or shown in the sale ring or preview. The management will not be responsible for accidents.
