Care of & Pick-Up

If a horse is kept overnight prior to sale a $4 per head per day feed charge will be assessed to the Seller. Buyer assumes full ownership and responsibility of the animal from the time it is sold in the sale ring. It is the new owner’s responsibility and sole risk from the time of purchase for proper feed, care, and maintenance. Do not take sale numbers off the animals, as they will be needed for checkout. The buyer and sale attendees further agree to hold the consignor and Sugarcreek Stockyards, LLC., harmless from all loss, cost and expense arising from illness, injury or death of such animal, or loss or damage to property, and injury or death of persons, caused by themselves, their agents, or employees, or by the animal, after the time of purchase.

Private Sales

No private sales with consignors either prior to the sale or after the auction. All animals brought to the sale must go through the auction ring. Any horses “no sold” in the ring but sold outside are expected to report it to the office. We will leave it up to the integrity of the buyer and seller to make sure this happens so the buyer and the seller will be welcome back to the sale.
