Investigators arrived at the monthly horse auction at 3:00pm. The auction is an old, run down building with approx. 100 pens. The pen area was extremely dark and the pens were muddy. To everybody’s surprise, there were only 2 horses offered for sale that day. Both of them were viewed outside in the parking lot, and only entered sale barn directly before the sale. The investigators will return to check the conditions on a busier sale day.
