What a fantastic sale again for the Deveraux, Pischke and Thompson families who hosted the 4th Annual Full House Elite Performance Stock Horse Sale in Newcastle Wyo., on June 15. The events started the day before with a Ranch Horse competition for sale horses. Many of the top-selling horses in the sale competed in the Ranch Horse competition, showing off their roping and ranching skills. By sale time the seats were full of prospective buyers and bidders from across the U.S., who have learned that this is one of the premier horse sales in the region.
The horses in the sale are proven arena and ranch horses along with a few prospects that have an excellent start and are ready to go on to compete in most any level of rodeo, jackpots or everyday ranch work. Craig Deveraux, Jill Pischke and Frank Thompson brought their best horses, and they were very instrumental in hand-selecting high quality horses from reputable consignors. The horses were very well shown and came with a guarantee that they were accurately represented.
Topping this year’s sale was lot 24, Texas Shining Star, a beautiful 2006, palomino gelding sired by Yellow Rose of Texas by Peptoboomsmal and out of a Plain Dual Nic x Just Plain Colonel bred mare. This is a do-anything type of horse, pretty enough to carry the flag in the grand entry, plus smart and athletic enough to win in the roping, cutting and ranch horse competition. The gelding was consigned by Craig Deveraux family and sold to Bobby & Raquel Mulkey, Johnstown, Colo., for $30,000.
Selling at $26,000 was lot 19, Badger Bob Prom, a 2006 sorrel gelding sired by Bobalena Bob x Bob Acre Doc x Son of Doc and out of a Doc’s Hickory x Peppy San Badger mare. PRCA calf roper Brent Lewis has been roping and tying calves on him for several months and the horse was ready to go roping big time. The horse came from Craig Deveraux family and sold to Clayton Graham, Baker, Mont.
Lot 4, Handsome Advantage, a 2000 palomino gelding sired by Obvious Deception x CQ Splash and out of an Impressive Pie San x Top Vantage mare sold to Bobby and Raquel Mulky, Johnstown, Colo., for $20,000. Another “carry the flag” beautiful palomino that had been hauled in heading events, plus a do-anything ranch horse, consigned by Craig Deveraux family.
Also selling at $20,000 was lot 32, Taylor Made Magic, a 2006 buckskin gelding by Call the Taylor by Taylors Tivio x Poco Tivio and out of Bueno Chex x Refined Sugar dam. This horse ropes both ends very will and is excellent for doctoring calves in the pasture. Consigned from Craig Deveraux family, he sold to Dustin Wood, Gillette, Wyo.
Two horses sold at $19,000 each. Lot 13, Hunk A Chex Dunit, a 2006 dun gelding sired by Chex N Dun It x Bueno Chexnic is out of a Beckwith Dun mare. Consigned by Jeff Miller, this nice horse sold to Clayton Graham, Baker, Mont. Lot 30, Shining Pine, a 2008 palomino gelding sired by Makin Moonshine by Shining Spark and out of a One Great Dude x Great Pine consigned by Mike Kruger sold to Bud Coughlin, Bentor, Pa.
Selling at $18,500 was lot 22, TJ Codys Sugar Nic, a 2005 chestnut gelding from the Deveraux family that was sired by Two Nic x Reminic and out of a Scooter P Cody x Sugar Bars dam. Bob Stoddard, Douglas, Wyo., was the buyer.
Rounding out the top selling horses are:
Lot 18, ICT Espuela Cash, a 2008 grey gelding from Frank Thompson and Brent Lewis to Tom Bruce, Newcastle, Wyo., at $16,500.
Lot 33, Lil Honey Wagon, a 2008 grey gelding from Zane Marty to Bob Stoddard, Douglas, Wyo., at $15,500.
Also at $15,500 was lot 64, Nathen Payne, a 2007 bay gelding from Zane Marty to Jay Johnston, Glenrock, Wyo.
This was an excellent sale with some of the top arena and ranch horses around, and promoters that stand behind the horses.
