Likewise, anyone guaranteeing registration papers but not having them in hand will have their check held until the sale barn receives the papers. **********Important!********** We do expect the horses that are advertised to BE HERE for the sale! Effective immediately, if you advertise your horse with us ahead of time and do not bring the horse to the sale, you WILL be charged a $50 fee, no exceptions. Many of our buyers drive a good distance to get here and it is very disappointing when the horse they drove to see doesn't show up! BUYERS! Don't settle for a tiny auction ring - buy horses where you can REALLY see them move! 72 HOUR SOUNDNESS GUARANTEE!!!!! Carolina Horse Sales is proud to offer a 72 hour soundness guarantee on horses that are sold sound for $1000 or more in our ring! YOU MUST BE THE HIGH BIDDER IN THE RING FOR THE SOUNDNESS GUARANTEE TO APPLY! Horses bought outside of the ring (for example, a horse that is no saled in the ring then bought out back after) are NOT COVERED by the soundness guarantee! If you want the guarantee, be the bidder IN the ring! Here are the basics. The soundness guarantee is specific to the following: Lameness, absence of vices (i.e. cribbing or weaving), soundness of wind (heaves, roaring), free from parrot or monkey mouth (overbite or underbite), and sight in both eyes. A seller may declare a horse to be a cribber but otherwise sound. In that case, you are buying the horse with the guarantee minus what was declared (In other words, you can call us with a lameness concern on such a horse) What is NOT covered: Any horse sold under $1000 is not covered by the guarantee. Any horse sold "as is" or "buying him there in the dust" Horses sold "as is" or "there in the dust" are announced as such so please listen to announcements on each horse. Any horse sold outside of the ring is NOT covered, regardless of cost. You must be the bidder IN THE RING. Lameness: Obvious lameness that is observable is of course covered. A failed flexion test alone on a horse that travels sound otherwise is not acceptable as flexion tests are not a reliable stand alone diagnostic tool. Sickness. Anytime horses congregate in one area, sickness is a concern just as when you send your kids to school. We STRONGLY recommend that ANY horse new to your herd at home is quarantined for at least 21 days no matter where it comes from. We have horses here from all over the country and with that of course comes the risk of viruses passing between them. Be smart, be safe, and quarantine! :) Be an informed buyer! Get here early, go back to these stalls and speak with our consignors! ASK those tough questions. Look the horse over BEFORE they enter the ring. We have asked our consignors to do their part and represent their horses as they are. We also ask our buyers to be smart consumers. The barns are open and the horses are here - go through them ahead of time and shop smart!
