    Default Virginia Hunter & Sport Horse Fall Sale Results?

    Just checking to see if anyone went to the sale today. Our stallion Penrhyn Sporting Chance had a lovely pony hunter daughter in the sale by the name of What Luck. Just wanted to know how she did in the sale!

    I'd love exact numbers, too!

    Per the H/J Forum, many of the ponies went for $2K or less. The large Falling Moon pony NSed at $6600. Um, normally a young large of that quality would be 3 to 4 times that price! Scary. I'd also love to hear the price on the Wicklyn pony by *Telynau Royal Charter.

    I just got back from the sale and while I do not have exact prices (sorry, I was there 7 hours), I can say that a number of horses did bring good prices but their owners no saled them (the 2 mares I was interested in no saled at 19K and 29K, and the 19K no sale horse had recently undergone surgery for a torn tendon but has recovered well).

    Are you sure about the Falling Moon mare? I thought that one had gone for quite a bit more but could be wrong. She was *lovely.* Also, while some horses really were a steal (e.g., a beautiful palomino gelding by Gold Apollo that was beautifully put together and had a lovely temperament), for others it was clear why they did not bring as much (eg funky legs, not well presented, etc). I also had the impression that many of the people shopping were looking for horses they could ride, now. If you are selling a pony it helps a lot to show them under saddle with a kid up. Some were not presented under saddle and others were presented by way too large adults. One little 12 hand pony was a super, super little mover but it was a little hard to see that because he was carrying a very tall guy. He would have sold for probably double with a little kid up on him - he was a great pony.

    The place was quite crowded - there were NO seats available in the stands and I in fact stood the whole time along with about 40 other people. Some people were bidding by phone. The atmosphere was fairly dynamic. I did not get the sense that we are in an economic meltdown - there were, as a I said, a lot of people there and a lot of people bidding throughout the day. They had approx. 160 horses - that is a long day. There were easily 2-3 ponies that really appealed to me and 2-3 horses, also. And some that did not look like much on paper really shined in person.

    I bought one, Grande Divina. I would have bought more but not being there makes it hard. I thought the auction people were really nice and I'll buy from them again. Of course I'm also thrilled with my mare.

    She is super. Have you seen her in person yet? A really wonderful mare. Congratulations!
    Two of the other mares I really liked were Floresca and the SF x Argentinus mare (she had a name like Avigna but not that).

    What a pretty mare! Congratulations, Jill! How exciting that she is in foal to one of your boys. That should be a lovely cross.

    Thanks everyone. I haven't seen her in person, hopefully she gets here in about a week. It's probably good I don't live close enough to attend.

    I wanted to say, I saw a number of very tempting prospects at the sales...if you weren't there...the opportunities were many! I loved the pony foal a fancy dark bay ..mmmm Good!!

    Thanks for the remarks about Grande Divina. On top of wonderful movement and conformation...she is a complete love. Divina was lightly shown and took top ribbons at Devon and Dressage at Devon. Her Three FULL sisters ( yes 3!), dam and sire have been winners in many venues.
    After EVERY ONE of my mares produced 2009 fillies...I got the message to move the bloodlines on to others!!! Have to say I am a bit sad to have sold her before seeing the Aloha foal...(sigh).. I am simply thrilled to have Divina going to a breeding farm and Gray Fox no less!! Jill has now added two full sister STARS I bred to her broodmare band this year alone!
    My goals as a breeder (formerly Tellwynd) have been realized over the several decades I have produced champion warmbloods. It is a great feeling to pass the genes along. Divina's dam was a terrifc producer; paired with Grande Saber she never failed to produce an absolutley wonderful sport horse. Her daughters have produced wonderful babies at Hunter's Peak. I still own Grande Desire and will continue to ride & breed her. Her 2009 filly will show on the line in 2010. Grande Sovereign is booking top mares for 2010. And so it goes.


    Sorry I didn't respond earlier.. I was out of town just after the sale ended...I am totally exhausted. Is it really Nov 15th already??
