MUD AUCTION

On Saturday, I had been told that there was a Auction going on not far from my home, so I decided to go take a “look see” at just what was there.  After finding a parking place, which was tough to do, I started walking around just to see and hear what a Auction is all about.  Above is one of the Auctioneers pointing to baby lambs to be auctioned off.  These people have their own language in selling off what is for sale.  They talk so fast that I just can’t understand them, except for knowing a few words they’ve said.  Guess you must be around them alot more often to take in what is said so fast.  The cute little lambs were selling at $30.00 for one animal.  That was the last bid I heard.

There are quite a number of Amish people that live in my area, so it seem’d that alot of them were here to see what could be bought.  Here are just some of the Horse & Buggy’s that they travel in.  Some have their Horse’s covered to keep them warm with a blue blanket.

Some of the Buggy’s even have padded seats!

2 day’s before this Auction, it had rained pretty hard for awhile.  This plus the snow melt from milder temperatures, made everything a muddy mess!  I shot this Image to show you just how over-cast it was.  The weather was not good, again!  It was cold & windy.  Notice the long lines of cars parked on the side of the road to the right and in the back ground.  Way in the back is where I had to park my car & walk in the slop for about a 1/4 mile.  I should have worn Mud boots for this!
