I'm interested but my normal handsitter isn't available and I really don't need any more animals. So I'll have to see how resolute I'm feeling closer to the date.

I'd love to go...one of these years...lol. If I wasn't so broke I'd probably go.

See Juska's post lol. Same issue here. I may go to Lolli's, though I've been saying that for the past several auctions they've had. So...probably won't.

Mt. Hope isn't TOO far away from me. But I know myself too well to let myself go. I'm too broke to go, and I know I wouldn't come home empty handed. So I just.. cant. Not this time around. :cry:

Same problem here, Sarajeku. Broke and really can't afford it, especially because I know I wouldn't come home empty handed. I don't have the self control for that!

Go with someone who is there to buy and then you can enjoy them attaining new pets. It works as long as they will also sit on your hands.

And duct tape your mouth so you can't make feeble attempts to shout bids sporadically.

Ahahahah! :lol: I love that wording!
The_Unstable, I'll sit on your hands, if you'll sit on mine! I'd bring home a baby coyote with my teeth if I find one though.. Image

Don't worry about sitting on your hands. Half the time I can be jumping up and down like a nut and they don't see me. I have missed some animals that way. Really ticked me off.
I will be there all three days. I might be looking at ponies.

Wow, that would have been infuriating, Lasergrl. I guess no hand sitting needed! Maybe if I were serious about buying, I should get one of those things that you talk in and they make your voice way louder...megaphones or something, I don't know what they're called.

The trick is to get in on the bid when its really low, that way when it gets to the end they will go back to you and ask if you still want in. The MR has this really loud whistle that usually gets their attention. Some auctioneers are better then others at looking around.

So how did everyone do?
I ended up with a pair of ring teal, pair of mandarin ducks, 10 Texas blue scale quail, baby pig, and a 5 month old quarter horse haflinger colt.

Dont see a market report up for this yet. Do you recall if they sold Bactrian Camels and for how much? Also how about Rheas and Ostrich?
