Was at the New York State Fairgrounds over the weekend for a horse show and got wind of an auction being held in the Swine and Goat Building. Walking towards the building, I could hear the distinctive cadence of an auctioneer rattling off escalating bids. How they talk so fast, keep track of who’s bidding and how much makes my head hurt. I just marvel at this skill. The subjects being auctioned where South African Boer Goats. Cute and cuddly but, to the people bidding, they were breeding and show animals. I was surprised as bidding frequently went over $500 with some goats going as high as $1,000. It was a fun event to hear, watch and photograph.
Love the way you got wind of the auction!! Also enjoyed seeing the arabian Klyde. Beautiful creature.
I’ll pass on your comment to Klyde. 🙂
