Sale Highlights and ResultsThe High-Selling Horse, Jackies Double Chunk, was consigned by Shawn Grant and Bill Martin. Jackies Double Chunk is a 2000 Gray Gelding that sold for $24,500 to Stafford Ranches. This beautiful gelding is a well broke Head Horse and you can heel on him too. Shawn's son Skeeter did a great job roping and demonstrating this horse in the preview and the sale ring. Two of the very nice geldings made a trip to their new home in Hawaii, Tazzle Dazzle consigned by Les Oswald for Ted Konopisos, and Chicks King Via consigned by Cord Forzano for Jay Ayres, were purchased by Daryl Mederios from Kaui.
The Top-Ten Horses averaged $15,300. These quality horses were consigned by Shawn Grant, Les Oswald for Ted Konopisos, Cord Forzano for Jay Ayres, Jed Jacobs, Jason Hershberger for Aspen Meadows Ranch and Kim Adamic, David Chadwick, Alvaro Baeza, and Ty Saulsberry. Jason is always excited to see good horses from the sale go on to be successful with their new owners. Jason was glad to see the quality of horses that were brought by in by consignors from AZ, CA, NM, OK, KS, CO, ID, WY, UT, and MT. The over-all average sale price on the horses sold was $6,985. Thanks to the consignors who brought these quality horses.
