This auction requires that all donors and buyers be registered. This enables us to keep track of seasons for auction and who bids on them. It protects both ourselves as the auction providers and you as buyer and/or donor. Registration is simple and painless. Merely click on [New Registration] or on the top of any auction page.
Click on the name of the stallion you'd like more information about. If you wish to place a bid, enter your bid in the box below the stallion information, then click on the PLACE BID button at the bottom. You will then see a bid confirmation page. This is your opportunity to review your bid before it is submitted. If you are satisfied with your bid then click on the CONFIRM BID button to lock in your bid. Your bid will not be posted if you do not confirm it on this page! Should someone outbid you, the system sends you an e-mail notification with a link back here to the stallion listing. Click on the link right in your e-mail message and you will be returned directly to the stallion listing. You can then decide whether you want to raise your bid.
To raise your bid, go down to the PLACE BID input box below the stallion's information and enter your new, higher bid. You will then see a bid confirmation page. This is your opportunity to review your bid before it is submitted. If you are satisfied with your bid then click on the CONFIRM BID button to lock in your bid. Your bid will not be posted if you do not confirm it on this page!
Sometimes a donor enters a Reserve Bid. For example, a specific stallion season sells for $500. The donor decides they want to get at least $450 for it. So a reserve bid of $450 is entered into the system. In such a case--even if you are the high bidder at, say, $425--you will not win the stallion unless you match or go over $450.
The system automatically sends the highest bidder and donor of the stallion season an e-mail when the auction ends. The bidder and donor then are responsible for making their own arrangements to conclude the deal for payment. The bidding amount will be payable to the MQHRA. Other charges are completely between the donor and bidder.
This auction merely offers a venue for buying and selling. We will not, and legally cannot, be held responsible in any way for any lack of performance by any and all parties. We simply provide a place that allows people to buy and sell. HOWEVER, do let us know of any problems. We can and will close the account of anyone who abuses our auction.
