About Us



Elkhart Horse Auctions is owned by the Thomas family. The Thomas family currently live in Donie, Texas. Donna has 5 children and 3 great-grandchildren. The oldest of the children is Joshua Lewis, who married his wife in 2009. Joshua and Kayla have two children, a daughter named Eden, who joined our Lord and Savior in 2010, and a son named Braddock, who is 4 years old. Donna’s second oldest son is Pete Thomas, who you will find auctioneering from time to time. Calvin Thomas is the youngest son, who has been married to his wife, Lisa Thomas, since 2014. Tiffany Patterson is the oldest daughter who manages the cafe. She is married to Dakota Patterson. They have a little girl, Larami, who was born in July of 2014 and a baby boy due November of 2017. The baby of the family is Savanna Thomas who is 19. She is found managing the back of the barn.  The Thomas’s have truly been blessed with a wonderful family. Everything they do, they do to glorify God.

“Not to us, O LORD, not to us, But to Your name give glory Because of Your loving kindness, because of Your truth.”   Psalms 115:1



Every auction is started with a prayer and scripture reading followed by tack, saddles, outside sales, and horses. 

We strive to make this place, not just a horse auction, but a place where the family can come on Saturdays together and enjoy a safe and friendly atmosphere for the whole family to enjoy.

We honor God in all we do and we ask that you respect that. Please refrain from any foal language, violence, alcohol or drugs of any kind, or crude manners. 



We are proud to have one of the largest horse auctions in Texas. We have people coming from all over the United States every weekend to purchase horses. We average about 100 head every week. 

Every two months we have a special Prison horse sale where Texas Dept. of Criminal Justice bring us 15 horses. These horses are used within the prison for guards, labor, therapy, etc. They are big and beautiful. During Prison horse week we average about 150-180 head making it a huge sale. 

Nothing we do without praising God for it all. Without him nothing is possible.                              "With God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26
