July 16: I just heard that some people are still seeing this Blog thingy and thinking the site hasn't been updated since May. I thought no one was reading  it so I turned it off...or I thought I did..The sales pages are completely current and those are the ones I see when I log on. Since I obviously don't know what I'm doing with this page, I'll just go back to updating until I figure out what I did wrong :) We have five current listings and a notice that a shipment is scheduled for Sunday.

Sunday April 7:  Four new listings. Just a 'Heads Up' about Cola, I believe there is a 'typo' in her description,I I think it is meant to say that Cola did NOT appear to have been ridden) but it's 2:30 in the morning and I'm assuming that Sam, like anyone else with a half-a-brain is sound asleep :) I will check with her in the morning and post an update on the description if it is needed...Still no reported instances of any illness from the New Re-homers, but it's still a good idea to stress QT.

                 Cupid - Sold

December 21, 2012 : The lay off  turned out to be a lot longer than any of us expected.  The Feedlot Owner's injuries were complicated, making extended hospitalization neccesary. And without him there to purchase horses, we had none to list until he was released and returned . There are eight beauties assessed and listed now. So let's get back to work!

              Bonzai    -  Sold

October 18: Darn it the Blogger page is acting up again! I wrote a whole long rant on the events of the past weekend and it's all gone now - probably for the best :)... In short, on Friday Evening, all of the slaughterhouses in both Canada and Mexico shut down without warning and without an explanation. They re-opened on Monday but all of the holding pens are backed up and the haulers seem to be having problems scheduling pick-ups. So our announced shipment, this past Wednesday was cancelled. The earliest the hauler can schedule a collection from the Zillah lot will be next Wednesday,( October 24)  but no firm date has been set, as far as I know...We haven't had any new assessments in all the confusion, but expect some new listings shortly.

I will be leaving the assessments up on the sales page as examples for a new group of listers which I hope will be using our service soon...And Yup, I know I should have thought about the confusion of leaving the horses listed BEFORE I started the project but this is just another example of a Brilliant Group having a Dufus as an admin ;)To repeat: All listed horses are Sold.

August 19: Just got a message that the schedule for shipping has been delayed until Friday  the 24th. I'm not  looking this 'gift horse' in the mouth, I'm just saying Thank You to whoever or whatever caused the delay and taking the extra time, because we really need it this week.

 August 3: The shipment has been delayed until Monday - Apparently the hauler has a big job with a herd of cattle, so the Horses will have another couple of days.

July 11..Update Shipment is scheduled for Friday, July  13, all arrangements must  be made by 10 A.M. they will be tagged at 11 and the tags will not be removed for late sales.
July 11...Okay, as you might be able to deduce from the long 'lag' in updating, my computer problems continued and turned into a saga of epic proportions. I don't like change and when I bought a new computer I couldn't figure out how to log on with the new OS, then when I finally surrendered and had my Old computer rebuilt I...well I basically forgot all about updating this page...Head hanging in shame, I apologize to all my 'Regular Readers' (all ONE of them :) ) and promise to return to  offering the Weekly Reports.
     The past couple of weeks have been weird. Very quiet and our number of re-homings was reduced to One while we added Five new horses which brings our total to twelve. No shipping date has been scheduled as of this moment, but as always, that could change in the next five minutes. We have something for everyone this time, even some really sweet mules :) The Horses available for purchase are:

          Seth  - In QT
          Aria - Sold
          Dusty Darling - Sold

          Prada - Sold
          Jeb- Sold

May 12,..We only have two horses listed at the moment. The assessor was at the lot helping to load one of the horses for it's trip home and she spied some newcomers, a pair of beautiful Standardbreds, trained to drive. She snapped a picture with her cell phone and will assess them on Monday or  Tuesday .
May 8...Don't get me started. My computer died and while I'm  trying to ressurect it, I'm stuck using the 'computer-saurus''s almost as old as I am and isn't happy about being called out of retirement. So I've called on the generosity of My Dear Friends and they  have done an excellent job getting the new listings posted...Thank You Michele!.. We are expecting a truck on Thursday, the  10th, just two days away  and we have listed 6 more horses, two of them from a brood farm:
       Laurel -Safe
       Brogan -Safe
       Basil -Safe

       Lillian -Safe
       Saxon - sold
       Wynn -sold
       Darcy- Sold
May 5:. I suppose you can never 'tell' about people. A few days ago the Feedlot Owner shipped Cleo even though a Rescue had raised the funds to buy her and contacted him .just a few moments after she was loaded on the truck . He refused to unload her and she was lost to the shipper. But this morning the Same FLO sent a picture of some new arrivals at the lot, a beautiful Paint Mare and her small Paint Foal. We aren't waiting for an official assessment. The lot is a dangerous place for grown horses, this tiny baby needs to get out of there immediately. The current assessments are listed as:
       Lyric and Little Singer - sold
       Silk - sold

April 28: We lost Cleo to the shipper. RIP Pretty girl.
April 28 : Situations can change in the  'blink of an eye'. We were told two days ago, that there weren't enough horses on the lot to justify the costs of a shipment. Then, yesterday, the Feedlot owner called to say he was combining a shipment with another Kill buyer. These horses belong to him and he has the right to sell them as he sees fit.. But we don't have to like it. As of this moment, we have until this afternoon to get them safe, or they could be gone.
April 27: No truck date is scheduled as of today and ten new horses have been listed:
       Tickle - Sold
        Epona - Sold
        Cascade - Sold

January 24: For the first time in a very long time, all of our Listings have been re-homed a full day before the shipping date. Our Assessor says there may be one more horse to list before the Feedlot Owner clears the lot to deal with the Strangles virus. So we might be taking a break for a couple of weeks. But please keep checking back. because, unfortunately, as long as we allow Equine slaughter in this country, we will be finding these Beautiful horses on the Feedlot.
January 20 : A shipment is scheduled for next Wednesday, Jan, 25...Griffen died last week due to complications of the Strangles virus..RIP pretty boy.

Cinders, Leela and Jynx are sold so the ones left are:

     December 1: This could be the worst day in the History of our Group. We lost so many horses in the last shipment it's difficult to even try to express the sorrow... RIP Innocent Souls, we will remember and work to try to help those left.
                Bliss- Sold
                Rex- Sold             
                Kissie - Sold
                Bedazzled -Sold
                Karana - Sold
     Nov 30 : The last shipping date was scheduled  for Friday or Saturday then Moved up to today.. We can only hope Our Listings will be held back, and still be available tomorrow.
     We received word that the Gates were closed at the Florence Packing Company and no horses would be accepted until Sunday, November 13, and so the Shipment from the Feedlot will be, at the earliest November 14.

     November 5: We received new pictures of  some of the TB's. We do not usually list untrained horses. But these beauties are Well Bred, Young and Healthy. So they might find homes with People looking for an excellent Training Prospect. The latest report we have heard for a shipping date is  Friday, November 11th
                  Noah- Shipped
                  Bedazzled -  Sold
                  Justin:- Sold
                  Keifer:- Sold
                  Gemma -Shipped
                  Karana - Sold
                  Bubba - Shipped
                  Harmony- Sold

     October 28: 12 TB's have been listed. Their ages range from 3 to 20 years. All are registered and the papers are available. What a sad comment on the current Market when we are seeing horses of this calibre and breeding, standing on the Feedlot.
    The day has taken another 30+, Innocent souls to their deaths. But none of the Listed Horses were lost. All but four were sold. Still Available:
                 Kismet - Sold                                                                                                                                             Justin 
                 Keifer, still in the Kill Pen in Toppenish.

    The shipment has been delayed until Friday. October 28. We were given no reason for this - Sometimes the pens at Florence Packing are filled and cannot accommodate any more horses, sometimes the Canadian Canner has reached it's capacity and sometimes the transporter just can't make it as scheduled.We don't own these horses and have no voice in any of the schedules or plans for them. So we will keep working to advertise them until the gates are locked and the truck is gone.

    A shipment is scheduled to leave the Feedlot on Wednesday, Oct , 26. As always we cannot say which of the horses will be chosen, by the Owner, to fill the trailer headed for Florence Packing. Some, or all, of our listed  horses, might be held back for another week. But, at this point, all eight listed on the  Zillah Feedlot are in danger:
      Susie Que -Sold
      Firefly - Sold
      Haley - Sold
      Branagan - Sold
      Kingston - Sold
      Danny Boy- Sold
      Coco-Rose -Sold
    Keifer and Lincoln are in a Kill Pen in Toppenish and we have heard  of no change in their status. They are still there. But until they are purchased, they will belong to the Kill Buyer and can be sold to Slaughter at any time.
      Lincoln -Sold
