The horses have been shown and sold. Prime, our sorrel ranch gelding, didn’t show the best. We drew a cow that ran over us a little, but that’s no excuse. I just didn’t get him shown and that’s the bottom line. Whiskey, our bay ranch gelding, made a pretty good run. I was very pleased with how he did.
The sale seemed to reflect their performance, although there was more interest in the bay horse to begin with. Prime brought under $5,000, so we passed on the sale, otherwise known as a P.O. Whiskey, brought $9,800. Congratulations to Mr. Fullbright of Hebronville on the purchase. I’m pretty sure they have plans to make a head horse out of him. He has the ability to be a big-time team roping horse, so I’ll be eagerly following his progress down there.
