  1. Who are the judges?

  2. I think the consignment delnidae for Buckeye is normally in November, but the March sale normally fills up way before then, so the best option is to call and ask. I think the Signature sale hasn’t even started taking consignments.The Buckeye sales are mostly Amish buyers, though there are exceptions. We’ve sold/purchased quite a few show horses through this sale with success. But this sale brings about 250 consignment horses and a lot of quality if looking to buy at a good price.The Signature sale is more geared towards show horses, but they do take nonshow consignments. This sale has more show homes , but there are also a lot of Amish that come to the sale as well.We’ve purchased show prospects through both sales and did well with them.
