THE HORSE MARKET CONTINUES TO BE TOUGH. GOOD RANCH HORSES ARE IN DECENT DEMAND BUT OVERALL THE HORSE MARKET IS TOUGH. MONEY IS NOT LOOSE AND YET THE QUALITY OF HORSES IS MUCH BETTER THAN WHAT WE'VE SEEN IN THE PAST. GOOD FAT QUARTER HORSE CROSS MARES AND GELDINGS STILL TOP THE MEAT MARKET . TODAY WE SAW THE TOP AT JUST OVER THE .50 MARK WHICH IS BETTER THAN THE LAST SALE! FOR SOMEBODY THATHAS LOTS OF FEED, IT MIGHT BE A GOOD YEAR TO FEED SOME THIN HORSES.
