No Pony for Christmas? Then How 'Bout a Fort Worth Cattle-Drivin' Quarter Horse?
|From the Stockyards to your back yard? A steal at under $1,000 ... so far.|
I went over to the auction site to see if that's still the case, and that's where I noticed that the Fort Worth Convention and Visitor Bureau is auctioning off a close to 11-year-old Quarter Horse named McCoy, who's no slouch. Says the gelding's got potential as a trail horse, given the fact he's spent the last year as part of the Fort Worth Herd that runs through the Stockyards twice daily, "which entails roping, sorting, popping a bullwhip from horseback, working pen gates, riding around heavy traffic and motorcycles, around concerts and parades." Left messages for the FWCVB. Auction closes January 4. So far there have been two bids, and neither has rung the reserve bell.
