How much do those horses usually go for?

CRRoans 07-25-2011 07:25 PM

Prices have quite a bit of variation, since it's an auction and depends on whether there's a bidding war. Sale prices ranged from $500 to $11,000, last year. Last year's riding horses were mostly young, very green stock. This year, the riding horses are more seasoned with more age, experience and exposure to a variety of tasks.

DVAuction will be providing absentee bidding through real-time online bids or proxy bidding. My personal preference is the proxy method. Since DVAuction represents their own clients, all proxy bids are completely confidential. This process allows a prospective buyer to give a set amount to DVAuction that the bidder is willing to spend on a specific horse. Then, DVAuction's representative will bid on the horse up to the limit (proxy) given. It's recommended to avoid the more common thresholds if proxy bidding.

Thanks for asking!

Is it just me or are a lot of the horses in the catalog built downhill?

Ugh! I don't think I can go! How much do they weanling usually go for?

@xilikeggs0--same as any group of horses, there will be some that run downhill or uphill or completely level. Since I've seen most of the horses in person, my immediate response was, "no." Yet, I can understand your comment since our photos in the catalog are taken in a variety of footing, it does not always accurately represent the horse as if it were photographed on a flat, level surface. If you're interested in any of the horses, I'm happy to help identify if their conformation is suitable to your needs or not.

@ilovemyPhillip--Awww! We would love to have you. The weanlings sold for $500 to $6,000 last year. I would say most sold for around $1,000. There are some really nice babies this year.

Man! :( This a yearly sale? If so I will plan for next year.

Yes, it's an annual sale. You should make the trip sometime. :-)
