    It's dealers that *sell* to killers who will be there. Don't doubt it for a minute. The feedlot auction here in GA gets most of its horses from NC, SC and VA. They are purchased there by dealers who bring them here to sell.

    Yowza...what a list of horses!

    Ok, I might have to go. My husband will divorce me if I buy another horse......

    Maybe I can resell it in spring????

    Of course, I'd only buy the ultra cheaps, mostly to outbid the dealers. It would also have to be conformationally ok. I'd have to resell it. Cannot keep a 5th horse indefinitely. But, I can keep one for a while.

    Yea Mel!

    One of the mares for sale (You Oughta Know) is by Deputed Testamony. Linkage, a stallion who, if I'm reading this right, was second in the Preakness is also on the sale list.

    Several of the horses are by Winged Universe - he has Turn To, Princequillo, Jet Pilot, War Admiral, Bold Ruler, Nasrullah, and War Relic in his pedigree. The stallion Linkage, and a few mares in foal to him, are offered. He has War Admiral, Ribot, Turn To, Tourbillon, ManOWar and Bulldog in his pedigree. I have a granddaughter or great granddaughter of Linkage in my barn! The 87 gelding - that is the one I hope someone gets! Hopefully stallions, yearlings, mares in foal, etc. wouldn't go to the killers - but an 87 retired gelding? Somebody nearby go get that boy!

    Look at Hip #3, Envolee.

    Does anyone think she is likely to get a good home? Looks like she's had ONE successful pregnancy. One year w/ twins, the rest, empty.

    She is an '85 broodmare, won next to nothing.

    Marsyl Stokes Hammond

    Thoroughbred breeder Marsyl Stokes Hammond died peacefully in her sleep at her home, Liberty Hall, in Culpeper County, Va., on May 30. She was 82.

    Prior to moving to Culpeper County, Mrs. Hammond lived for 20 years at Foxhill Stud near Middleburg, Va., where she bred horses for flat racing and steeplechasing. She owned such notable mares as Boudella, Orabella and In-Command, and she bred horses both in England and the United States.

    Mrs. Hammond is survived by son Robert S. Montgomerie-Charrington and stepson Ogden H. Hammond II; two grandsons; and one great-grandson. Husbands R.V.C. Montgomerie-Charrington and Ogden Hammond preceded her in death.

    Contributions in her memory may be made to the Culpeper County Humane Society, 10144 James Monroe Hwy., Culpeper, VA 22701 or to the Fauquier County SPCA, P.O. Box 733, Warrenton, VA 20188.

    Not to speak ill of the dead or to criticise when we don't know the whole story. But I wish Mrs. Hammond had provided better for her horses in her will, especially the retired geldings. Seems like a good reminder to sound out family members on their plans for your animals in the event of your death, or to make other arrangements for them. Maybe the horses are being sold to cover expenses of the estate, but I'm sure a good lawyer could have helped her work something else out for the animals, especially those without any real value like the retired geldings.

    Never mind provisions in the will...

    Did you check out the breeding on those horses? There are a lot of nice stallions out there, and it doesn't look like the farm made an effort to find any of them (with the exception of one non-running daughter of Strawberry Road). Breeding a farm full of babies (and subsequent broodmares) by a stallion whose claim to fame is winning $59K and siring 14 winners in what must have been almost 20 years at stud is pretty much the definition of irresponsible breeding.

    This is very sad.

    Clearly, Mrs. Hammond provided for the retirement of her horses as long as she lived. It is very sad situation.

    C. Boylen, you are right to name this a wake-up call. I suppose it is hard to think beyond the boundaries of our own existence.

    (and learned how to spell Testimony "Testamony" at the same time)

    Deputed Testamony is Reputed Testamonys sire, and also this mares. She seems to have a lot of Chilean and Argentinian blood on the bottom and doens't appear to have any progeny registered yet. If I was closer I'd at least go and take a look and see what she goes for!

    Here's her link: You Ought Know Del Mar pedigree

    Linkage stood for several years at Rockburn/Meadowville in Marshall. What is going to happen to an aged, formerly useful stallion of fabulous breeding?

    Those mares have excellent bloodlines as well.

    I am calling the people who owned Maddie's sire to let them know about this sale. They are already horse poor but care for their animals greatly. Perhaps they and others like them can pass the word.
