Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo First Interstate Bank Horse Sale

Story and photography by Larry Larson

Records are made to be broken. Even in an economically challenged market, the 53rd Annual Black Hills Stock Show (BHSS) and Rodeo Horse Sale rose once again as a leading outlet for the horse industry. Presented in Rushmore Hall at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center, record crowds literally filled the facility for the two-day sale Jan. 28-29 that featured another strong group of select consignments screened for their talents in the performance arena.

The 2011 First Interstate Bank Horse Sale drew 158 consignments with approximately half selling each day. Held in the Crystalyx BioBarrel Show Ring, the sale corporate sponsors this year included First Interstate Bank, Ravelette Publications, Inc, Cattle Business Weekly and Larry Larson Photography, Inc. Auctioneer Lynn Weishaar, Reva, SD, and announcer John E. Johnson from Piedmont, SD, returned to the auction block once again for a sale that set an overall record average of $4,948.

Yet another record fell when the 2008 black stallion Lenas In The Bud walked out of the ring on the Saturday sale. An own son of Nic It In The Bud, a stallion sired Reminic and out of Genuine Redbud by Genuine Doc, his dam is a full sister to Smart Little Calboy, NRCHA World Futurity Champion, AQHA Superior Reining and 1989 Reserve World Champion Cutting Horse. This promising young stallion, with a bright future in the Reined Cow Horse arena, was consigned by Stanley Tippman and Frank Kenzy from Iona, SD. He left the ring after heated bidding at $23,000 with Nicole Wheeler from Baker, MT, now taking the reins – setting a new individual consignment record for the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo Horse Sale.

Also consigned to the Saturday sale was the 2001 sorrel gelding Jessies Gun Slinger. Consigned by Marv Gaubatz from Rockwell, IA, the outstanding sorrel gelding has been shown in cutting, working cow horse, heading, heeling and breakaway and is a NCHA money earner and AQHA point earner in several of the arena events. His sire, Young Gun, is by Freckles Playboy and his dam is Jessies Jennifer, an own daughter of Doc Wilson by Doc Bar. Catching the eye of Jim Simmons, Rapid City, SD, he brought a final bid of $17,000.

Showcased on the annual “Stallion Row” and presented in the sale ring prior to the sale each day, ten of the region’s leading Quarter Horse and Paint sires were once again a large draw and crowd favorite at the annual BHSS on the opening weekend. Alan and Cindy Taylor of http://www.horseauctions.com hosted daily live web coverage of not only the two-day horse sale, but the ongoing events at the Jim Kjerstad Event Center on the Central States Fairgrounds. Competition started on Saturday, Jan. 22 at the Event Center and concluded with NCHA Cutting on the last weekend, ending on February 6.
