Buckeye Morgan Sale

The following post is from the Yahoo group, Positively Morgans, and is posted here with permission of the author, Julie Blair:

It was the usual “sea” of black coats and straw hats. Finding a place to sit was difficult on Friday and nearly impossible on Saturday. In fact, standing room was scarce on Saturday. Also typical, prices were higher on Saturday than Friday.

Generally prices were lower than usual and there were some tremendous bargains to be had. Lot 64 Parkisimo Sensation (Immortal Sensation x Royalton Benn Aida) f. 2005 was driving beautifully and ready for the show ring. A big, black, mannerly stud, handsome and tons of motion. His owner offered $1000.00 for a picture of this horse winning a class at OKC and he looked like he could do it. He sold for $4900.00.

A handsome pair of 3 yo black geldings sold for $6700.00 each. A pair of chestnut mares, Lot 151 and 152, full sisters, shown working together perfectly in harness, sold for $900.00 each.

I didn’t buy anything but my hand got a mind of it’s own when #231 came in. A 16hh, 1300 pound, buckskin mare, 10yo, trained to ride and drive, absolutely kid and traffic safe. One look in those gentle brown eyes and I was hooked. What a great vaulting horse she would be! The realization that I really don’t need another horse (and didn’t take the trailer) returned me to my senses around $3000.00 and the mare sold for $5700.00 (sniff!)

Lot 230, Front Gate Freedom Rings (HVK Belle Flaire x Whitmorr Wild Irish Rose) 4 yo stallion. An awesome driving horse went for $6000.00 and worth every penny.

Lot 214 JJP Miss Temptation a 2 yo double Noble Flaire filly by Spiceolife Right Answer and out of HRH Miss Congeniality drove beautifully and had a sweet temperament. She was extremely fine boned which might have accounted for a big knee in front and bucked shin behind. She went for $2300.00.

There were a few nice yearling colts and fillies that went for four to five hundred. The stallion presentation was awesome. It isn’t every day you get to see thirteen stallions all in the same arena at the same time. They split the presentation as there were 26 stallions total. JMF Selkirk Shadow slipped his bridle and got loose before the presentation. He smashed five cars before someone got a hold of him. They did bring him for the end of stallion presentation so I guess he was fine but the cars didn’t fare too well.

It was great to see several old friends again but we missed some of the regulars. I think gas prices discouraged a lot of the “english” people. Maybe we should learn to car pool like the Amish do. They still turned out in force.

    Too bad no one got any pictures! Lot 214 I would have loved to see. The dam was owned by my trainer before Mr. Peechy bought her and she was a sweet heart and beautifuly bred, she too had very very fine legs. And I think everyone who knows me knows I am a strong supporter of Spice O Life Right Answer, I wish I had gotten more photos of him while he was in Pa.

    I went to the sale….there were some good deals. I came home with three :). My husband and I stood out from the crowd since we were of only a handful that were not Amish. Which was lot 214?
