Give the young Ladies gentle horses - to drive & ride - don't let them get hurt - take good care of them - If they make a trip up the river you go with them for I want you to learn the country & see if any of your cattle are up that way... My old guide who goes with me every winter will be there to help you..." Usual folds, otherwise very clean in bright and in excellent condition.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
