A little slow on getting these posted, but I’m old, get over it. I thought the turnout was excellent, but then it was a very nice day. Quite cool in the morning, but warmed up nicely after lunch. I was glad I had brought a blanket!
The sale started pretty much on time, with slow bidding at first. I didn’t mind. I was enjoying a delicious, warm, Amish donut. Even if you don’t care for the sale, you should come get a donut!
The catalog listed 202 horses. They sold thru number 229. There were a lot of No Shows and No Sales. We left for lunch on #92 and returned on #124. The 22 listings in between I cannot say how many showed, or their disposition. For the rest, there were 47 NO SHOWS, and 28 NO SALES. That gives a 63% sell rate. Seemed a little low to me.
The high bids were:
|$2950||Flashy Paint X, with a good ‘show’||Ray Raber|
|$2800||Paint with good ‘show’||Ray Raber|
|$2200||Belgian Standardbred X, good ‘show’||Joe Raber|
The low bids were:
|$50||4 yo mini stud|
|$50||Jenny, age ?|
|$50||2 yo QH gelding|
