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

    Thanks!
    (1) Mare bred to Tara's Star was breeding sound only, had a racetrack injury to both left ankles. Sold for $300.

    (2) I have my prices above this post.

    Very buyer-friendly prices I quite liked one, but it ended up selling for a fraction of the advertised price...makes me think I should have made an offer

    My friend and I were really surprised that some horses/ponies who seemed really nice went for really cheap or didn't have hardly any bidders, but others that we wouldn't give a second thought to went for more than expected. I think that the biggest surprise to us was that the first pony sold, Annie Oakley, who was a super star in the classes that morning, had hardly any bidders! She was registered and absolutely gorgeous...I realize they said she wasn't for a beginner, but she looked like a super nice pony.

    And what was the deal with them disclosing soundness issues halfway through the bidding process?!? That's the first time I've ever seen that happen at one of their sales and I'm sorry, but I thought it was kind of tacky.

    The Barracks horses were all gorgeous and seemed to be REALLY well trained. If I were looking for another horse, I would have gladly taken any of them home with me.

    For REH, Tish Quirk would very much like to know who bought Stella (Sentimental). If you would PM me or Tish with the info., I'll make sure that Tish gets it. She would like to welcome them to the JTB family and that might be a nice them for the buyers should they ever have questions about Stella. Thanks!

    it happens a good bit especially when a seller "forgets" to mention it when the catalogue is being printed or it has happened in the 3-4 months since consignment...announcements made at time of sale supersede all others...that's just standard auction policy most everywhere

    The Barracks didn't have any horses consigned at this sale. Barracks Stud Farm had 6, including one from Shadowfax, LLC. The Barracks and Barracks Stud are neighbors, but entirely different entities.

    A friend who breeds Dutch horses asked me & I didn't know, so I thought I'd post -

    Anyone know where Ultra Violet, the Dutch mare from VT, went (Hip #109)?

    I was interested in her, too, but didn't make it to the sale this year.

    #105- Sentimental $8100
    #106 - Shergar $900
    #107 - Steelman $2950 no sale
    #108 - out
    #109 - Ultra Violet $2200
    #110 - Panza W $1550
    #111 - out

    Sorry in advance if some of these are incorrect. The sound was horrible, couldn't hear or see hip numbers. It was almost unbearable to watch.
    The summer sale was much better quality.

    Some very low prices. I'm glad I didn't take anything to sell, but wish I'd taken an empty trailer

    Call Professional Auction Services and see if they will tell you. They may not, for privacy reasons, but it can't hurt to ask. Or you can ask for the seller's contact information (which they do give out), and call and ask them if they have the buyer's info.

    I will send the info to Tish. I wanted to ask their permission first before I sent it onward.

    Thanks!

    Don't know about her previous sales, but I've seen that horse go locally a couple of years ago, and thought she was quite nice. Unless there was some major issue that I don't know about, whoever bought her got a deal.

    She certainly was pretty but the seller disclosed that she had a tendency to abscess, particularly on wet ground, and that needed to be shod every 4-5 weeks. They also said she was best with consistant work (5-6 days a week). Those things may have driven off some people. I can deal with the consistant work part, but I've got one already with foot problems and they are no fun. Lovely mare though.
