Take 80 east about 7 miles turn left on 1729 the sano community, go about 6 miles and you will come to a store at the crossroads and you will see the sign, not sure what time it starts.

Well I made my first trip to the sale Friday night. I will have to say I enjoyed it. I almost had a stroke because I thought they were way to rough with the animals. But I am not your normal animal freak either. The goat sale is what got to me. The person in the ring with the goats had a wooden cane that I would have loved to have used on him. The animals were scared to death anyway and him and that damn cane weren't making things any better. He never hurt one, thank God, but he was just way too rough. Put yourself in the animals place if you can. You are taken from your home to a ring in a room with people you don't know and lights and a lot of noise, you would be scared too and then some "person" whacks you with a cane just because you don't stand where he thinks you should. Just want to see them be a little nicer, that's all. I know everyone reading this thinks I am THE NUT, but that is okay. Opinions are like assholes, everybody has one. We did buy some chickens and some guineas. I loved seeing all the animals and I will be back. I'll just take a nerve pill before I go the next time.

I have never been to this auction. What all do they sell? I would like to buy me a little lamb. How often do they have this and what about the prices? Do you get animals pretty reasonable? Also first timer...thanks for the warning on how they are treated....I am a sucker for animals that are mistreated. At least I will be prepared for what I might see. I agree with you, I would have probably wanted to take a cane to the person myself!!
got the money

Auction houses are not the place to go to see good treatment of animals. It's all about getting them in, getting them sold, and getting them out. Whether it's this auction for goats and other smaller livestock, or the horse and cattle sales.

Personally, I like it when the idiots with the sticks (and there seems to be at least one at every auction I go to) get kicked or run over by the animals they're hitting on. I once saw a jerk off who would beat the horses with his stick get full on kicked in the gut, then run over as the same horse tried to get out of the ring. Ah, that was satisfying....

But this auction isn't as bad as some. I've only been once, and with the exception of a bit too rough handling, it's not too bad. They sell goats, lambs, chickens, ducks, geese, there even some people who bring horses, though they usually get sold in the parking lot so they don't have to figure out how to run them through the ring. Nice place though. I'd go back.

some of the animals there like any auction house are coming from people that maybe can't take care of them or maybe just for there owner to make a quick buck but you have to look at it this way they have to go somewhere hopefully to a better home and if i have the money mine. auction houses are there to make money but the reason i go is maybe give a few animals a good home where they don't have to be sold just live out there life happy and fat and i thank that is why everyone should go and see what they have and give a poor animal a good home ....

Most auctions aren't for people to find or sell "pets" they are to sell livestock. Most of these goats will be used as meat goats, in other words people eat them just like cows. Yes some are bought for pets, as we did when we bought some for our daughters.

Some people would like to go and by some for pets. Not everyone on this earth eats their pets. That is why I could never raise animals to sell. If I have to feed and take care of an animal I damn sure ain't gonna eat it. I'll eat lettuce first. I know they buy them to eat. I am not that stupid. I just think that something that is making your butt money, should at least be treated with a little respect.

Respect is a very good thing. That's exactly what the animals should be treated with.

The animals are rushed in and out and I do feel sorry for them and hope they find a good home. They may be better off going there than staying on a starving farm. I like the auction in Garrard County.
