View 21: Goat Auction

Goat Auction

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.
