Cattle Auction And A Few Horses

V and E came to visit and V brought Mike with her so J and I took the lot out for the day to a cattle auction.  
 Cattle prices are waaaay down this year so J was interested to see how these 300 bred heifers would sell.   Last year they averaged $2185.  This year was closer to $1425.  J got a number but never used it.
 We finally got seats halfway through the auction.
 They provided a free chuck wagon lunch which was delicious.
 There was also a quarter horse herd dispersal.  There were weanlings, yearlings, two year olds, brood mares and stallions.  I don't think any of them had been handled much.  The yearlings were pretty big.
I thought I might have been able to handle one of the orphan weanlings but decided I wasn't in love with any of them so we didn't stay for the horse auction.  A pleasant afternoon to visit with people we don't see much and we didn't even spend any money.
