Thursday, October 1, Jamison Herefords & Quarter Horses held their 6th annual Quarter Horse Sale at the ranch in Quinter, Kansas. The 110 horses offered consisted of 50 geldings (from started to finished, 3 to 15 years old), 19 saddle mares (many broodmare quality prospects), 1 performance stallion prospect (a well started 2 year old), and 40 2009 foals (fancy stud, filly, and gelding prospects).
The performance stallion prospect, JA Tuckerwood Frost, was the high seller. By PC Frost Em Peppy, a son of Sun Frost, out of JA Lady Tuckerwood, the 2007 bay roan brought $10,000. Besides being good looking and athletic, he is intensely linebred, going back to Driftwood 10 times.
Since 2 horses tied for 3rd highest seller and 4th highest seller, I’m going to report the average for the top 6 high selling horses. These horses brought an average price of $8,917.
Of the 110 listed, 106 sold for an average price of $2,737. The sale percentage was 96%, proving that although the horse market has taken a beating during the recession, it is far from being dead.
