The Spader Quarter Horses Annual Production Sale was held August 27, at the Windmill Arena in Centerview, Missouri. The sale, held in conjunction with the KC Ranch Horse Classic ranch horse competition, offered 31 horses for sale. From weanlings to riders, these horses had some of the finest foundation bloodlines coursing through their veins. These horses go back to the likes of Lucky Blanton, Leo SI 100 AAA, McKeag, Driftwood, Blue Valentine, Joe Hancock, Driftwood, Bar Heels, and Gold Fingers. By combining proven families for speed, cow sense, disposition, and color, Spader Quarter Horses has produced athletic horses destined to excel at whatever activity their owner chooses. All this, and wrapped up in a pretty package too! It’s no wonder that all the horses sold.
The high selling horse in the sale was Moleo Rondo Sweetie, a 2005 sorrel mare, who sold for $6,300. Sired by Moleo Rondo Samuel and out of Uptown Sister, “Sweetie” was a truly broke, all around horse. A proven barrel racing competitor, she had also been used for ranch work and pasture roping, and was one that the whole family could ride.
The 31 horses totaled $45,250, for an average sale price of $1,460. The Top 5 horses brought $27,000, for an average of $5,420. This sale follows the trend of buyers looking for, and willing to pay for, proven riders.
