    Richard Taylor's Venture Stable (www.venturestable.com) has some fabulous things in this sale.

    Hip No.'s: 2, 12, 17, 23 & 28 are all nice animals. I've seen them and can promise you they are exactly as they are represented!

    I hate to break it to the sellers and i wish them all the luck with a successful sale....but NO ONE is buying right now .

    I've had an imported gelding up for sale for 2 months now. Auto changes, cute mover, as low maintenance as it gets, jumps 2'6-3'6 with ease...all the potential in the world with absolutely Zero health issues (i just have no time to ride right now).....and we have yet to get more than 5 inquiries on him. His sale price has dropped from 10,000 to 7,000 in a matter of a few weeks. I have only the 2nd person coming out to actually see him this weekend.

    The economy is in the toilet right now and its really, really bad for sellers right now. I think there is going to be a lot of diamond in the rough type of horses there and a lot of great deals to be had by all.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for everyone but i'm not expecting much. Good luck guys!

    I'm sorry to hear of your troubles, Farmgirl, but we've had a TON of interest already in the boys we're sending to the sale. We've had visitors to the farm everyday since the sale info posted and it appears to me that at least a few people are looking for horses. I know horses aren't bringing the very best prices right now, but many are moving through private and public sales.

    I agree the market is much worse than I expected this fall. HAve MANY nice horses available for rock bottom prices and very few lookers and they appear to be tire kickers. Honestly in all the years I have been marketing horses (35 years) this is the WORST year. Even last year was better! Had some good sales early in the year and usually things pick back up in the fall but jsut really hasn't. Wish the consigners the best of luck!

    Yes, you are right. But I don't think Nightshade was ever off Solomon Farm so I believe the foal would have been inspected and branded at Ann's annual RPSI Keuring. I could be wrong though . Regardless the dam of Sentimental is certainly not unknown.

    As a sale barn I have to say that horses are still selling. Yes the market is very slow but if you have what the market wants the horses are selling. For me, I would normally say that ponies seem to be the slowest but we (very fortunately) just sold six in the last 6 weeks. However, the broke geldings that are over 15.2h, (non tattooed TBs are ok) but people prefer wbs, draft crosses, QH crosses etc that anyone can ride. If they jump a course and swap leads even better! Babies and mares, especially TBs are harder to move so they have to be very special and very well priced. I find that cribbers are near impossible unless sold to professional barns or AA horses and are really nice.
    Well I wish everyone luck at the sale and with private home sales. I have also had interest in my sale horses entered in PAS so I hope it is a good sale. It is definitly a buyers market but things will turn around soon!

    The sound isn't too good on the webcast (at least for me) & I can't tell what number is in the ring - or what they are selling for.

    Could someone who attended (or who has better audio than I have) post sale results, when you have time?

    Thanks

    When I watch the Fasig-Tipton (thoroughbred) auctions on my computer, the sound quality is a little better, but they also put the Hip # right on the screen, along with where the bid is, and whether it is a sale or a RNA (reserve not achieved). Maybe for future reference, there could be a graphic with hip # & price? I'm technologically challenged, so I don't know if what I just said is asking for a lot or just for a little!


    We didn't make it to the sale today (obviously) & by the time we knew we weren't going, it was too late to meet the requirements for bidding from afar without an agent. But I'd love to hear who went for how much . . .

    While we choose not to sell at auctions, I can say that we have just had a very successful summer and early fall selling ponies. I've been extremely please at the brisk market these past few months and have quite a few ponies who have found great new homes. It was a significant increase over last summer/fall for us.

    Just to clarify any confusion (sorry just seeing this thread now), Sentimental has papers, but at the time my agent put in the listing, I couldn't set my hands on them and you can't list them as papered if you can't hand them over at the sale. So, I sent off for a new copy (goodbye $100) and the new owners will get them once they arrive.

    I'm really excited about her purchasers--she was exactly what I had envisioned her perfect home being and the teenager told her mother she wanted to get a mare and name it Stella, which happens to be Sentimental's barn name. Kizmet.

    I'm so excited and can't wait to follow their career together!

    Hello all:

    Questions:

    (1) If anyone saw Hip #102 go through the sale (Seattle Slew line TB mare i/f to a Hungarian stallion named Tara's Star) could you please PM me? I tried to find information on both the mare & the foal's sire & could not find anything at all.

    (2) How did the following hips sell: #53, 109 & 110

    Thanks!
