Dozens of neglected horses will be auctioned Saturday by Collin County Sheriff’s office.  The 47 underfed Arabians, 27 mares and 22 stallions, were seized from a negligent owner.  Deb Valencia who runs a Arabian horse farm in Copper Canyon, says that owner was in way over his head.  She says for the most part, the horse market has bottomed out.   “They’re not a necessity.  Middle-income people have to make a decision between keeping their house and keeping their horse.”
The minimum bid is $250 dollars.  Valencia says the county will be lucky to get even that.  Horses not sold will go to animal advocacy groups or rescue organizations.  For more on the auction, click here
