    I saw in the Chronicle that there are two Farnley Belshazzar babies that looked gorgeous that will be offered for sale there.

    As a breeder VB, do you feel this is a great venue to sell your babies and young ponies?

    Limerick, yes I do.

    Incorrectly, many people view sales as a "dumping ground" for things that are hard to sell. And, in some cases, that is true.
    However, if you choose to go to a sale to purchase, do your homework. This is the most prestigious sale in the pony hunter world, and usually the cream of the crop up and commers are offered here. Obviously, private sales are the number one choice, but if you have an excellent consignor, you can do extremely well at this sale.

    Look at this sale over the years. Look at who has the best selling ponies.
    Look at the reputation of the breeder.
    Is this a pony that can go on and do the green division? Does it need additional training? Do you have the rider for it? Does it require a little pro rider, or is it ready for a child?

    Common sense should play an important part here.
    Go with the proven sellers. They didn't get to be the high seller or the best seller because they consign medicore ponies.

    Not that I'm buying anything but can't wait to go and see the sale. It's the 1st time my daughter is showing so I get to go over and see the sale. The online catalog has some very nice looking ponies.

    I must say the "lilac" pony is a 1/2 sister to our stallion . Keep her in mind guys, she's going to be a good one, just like her brother . Im sure she has te brains. movement, jump, attitude, and kindness as her brother, our studly. Also Foxmor Hoodoo is a grandson of our studly. Great lines in him and i've seen photos....hes verynice Just needs miles

    Limerick - nope our pony is not breaking his green yet, we're working on getting him fit and conditioned. She's doing another one in the Large Greens.

    Caylei, they are only half or full sister or brother if out of the same mare, not by the same stallion. Just to let you know. But she is very cute with a big jump!

    Congrats to your daughter-her riding progressed fast didn't it? From this perspective, it seems she had recently moved up from Short Stirrup with that adorable grey pony. You must have great trainers and she must be a great rider.

    Thanks Limerick she's a very hard worker and has quite a bit of talent. She now rides with Rob Coluccio and he has done some amazing things in a short amount of time.....incredible man!

    Our beloved Teddy was sold to my daughter's best friend that lives in New York. Teds will be at Pony Finals so it's double excitement to see him again

    I keep hoping that I have that winning lotto numbers before the auction because there are some really nice looking ponies that I would love to bid on I have this fantasy of buying a really inexpensive pony and selling it for hundreds of thousands of $ but I guess most people have the same fantasy

    Why did you switch to Rob? I thought you were really happy w/ your old trainer. Also, didn't your daughter have a jumper too? How is she doing w/ him?
