SOUNDNESS/VICES
THIS AUCTION IS JUST LIKE ANY NORMAL EQUINE AUCTION- WE WILL BE 100% OPEN ABOUT ANY KNOWN DEFECTS, SOUNDNESS ISSUES, OR VICES ABOUT THE HORSE. IF X-RAYS ARE AVAILIBLE, IT WILL BE STATED ON THE AUCTION PAGE AND WE WILL POST A LINK TO THEM. PLEASE EXAMINE PICTURES AND VIDEOS CLOSELY FOR ANY ISSUES. IF ANY ADDITONAL VIDEO OR PICTURES ARE NEEDED TO DETERMINE SOUNDNESS OR CONFORMATIONAL CORRECTNESS, WE WILL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO PROVIDE THEM! 

ALL HORSES SOLD ON THIS AUCTION PAGE ARE COMPLETELY SOUND TO OUR KNOWLEDGE AND BY OUR JUDGEMENT, BUT ULTIMATELY IT IS UP TO THE BUYER TO DETERMINE THAT FOR THEMSELEVES. WE WILL GLADLY ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS AND FACILITATE ANY ADDITONAL INFORMATION TO ANY INTERESTED BIDDERS!

END OF AUCTION BIDDING
*****AT THE END TIME OF THE AUCTION, I WILL POST ON THE PAGE “GOING ONCE TO [high bidders
name].” I WILL WAIT TWO MINUTES, AND IF NO OTHER BIDS HAVE SHOWN UP, I WILL POST “GOING
TWICE TO [high bidders name].” IF A NEW, HIGHER BID IS MADE, THIS PROCESS WILL START OVER. IF NO NEW BID IS MADE WITHIN TWO MINUTES, THE HORSE WILL BE “SOLD” TO THE HIGHEST
BIDDER.*****

NEW: Solo Select Horses reserves the right to increase bid increments to $100 after auction end time at their discretion. This may be done if the auction is taking too long to end (i.e.- two people bidding in $50 increments for 20 minutes)- both bidders will be notified if this takes place! 

THIS MEANS THE AUCTION WILL TYPICALLY NOT END RIGHT AT THE “END TIME,” SO IF YOU ARE
BIDDING, PLEASE BE PREPARED TO BID AFTER THE END TIME. THIS IS DONE TO ENSURE EVERYONE IS
ABLE TO POST HIS OR HER FINALS BIDS. MANY PEOPLE STRUGGLE SEEING THE HIGH BID DUE TO THE
WAY FACEBOOK HAS SET UP THE “COMMENTS” SECTIONS ON PAGES. 

PAPERWORK
CURRENT COGGINS/HEALTH CERTIFICATE WILL BE GIVEN WITH PICKUP. PAPERS AND A SIGNED TRANSFER ARE 100% GUARANTEED WITH ALL SALES. IN SOME CASES, PAPERS ARE AT AQHA FOR TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP AT TIME OF THE AUCTION. IN THIS CASE, PLEASE ALLOW 4-6 WEEKS FOR THEM TO BE RECEIVED AND SENT TO YOU. IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT IMMEDIATE AVAIBILITY OF PAPERWORK TO YOU- FEEL FREE TO ASK BY CALLING OR MESSAGING THE PAGE!

PLEASE BE AWARE OF THESE RULES,
AND IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AT ALL, ASK BEFORE BIDDING.
