Horses were kept in large pens with access to hay and water. There was no overcrowding, possibly due to small number of horses present. The majority of horses were in satisfactory condition with a few underweight and bony. One horse had an apparent and highly contagious strangles infection (yellow puss dripping from nostrils). Trucks of Frank Carper, kill buyer and owner of Camelot Auction, were parked on the premises. Carper, who also frequents New Holland Auction in PA, ships horses to Canada on a weekly basis.
