In the equine industry we know 'Legends' – the yet vibrant 31-Year-Old Frenchmans Guy is one of them. We also understand the importance of a 'Reputation' in our industry – Bill and Debbie Myers have earned theirs and they are recognized for that. All aligned for yet another successful Myers Performance Horse Prospect Sale on August 25th – the last large consignment of Frenchmans Guy and A Smooth Guy progeny being offered at public auction.
Myers Performance Horses – Bill and Debbie Myers and sons Chad, Billy, Brandon and Brady – presented an event for the record books returning home to the Black Hills of South Dakota for their 2018 sale. Held at Travis and Amy Lantis' Seven Down Arenas East of Spearfish, South Dakota, the facility was filled to capacity for the preview and sale with knowledgeable horsemen from across the Nation and Canada drawn to one of the Nation's most powerful sale offerings this year.
Myers simply summarized their sale with, "The great thing we are finding out…our horses are going to such good homes and we are so thankful for that."
Travis and Amy Lantis, Sitnal Livestock, donated the proceeds ($4,000) of a colt they consigned, SL DA VINCI, 2018 Chestnut Stallion, to the Black Hills State University Rodeo Team.

The 2018 Fulton Family Performance Horse and Production Sale was held August 17, 2018 with a large crowd of eager buyers, as well as numerous absentee buyers from across the country. The overall sale average for all lots was $14,868 for another outstanding set of prospects at the Fulton Sale.
Fulton's standout sire, A Streak of Fling, has surpassed $3.5 million in progeny earnings this year and interest is strong in his bloodlines with two-year old offspring fetching an average of $24,333. CS Flashlight has again proven himself as a sire, especially crossed on A Streak of Fling daughters, with some of the flashiest, rodeo built progeny to date selling for an average of $12,600 in the two-year olds. Junior sire, A Dash Ta Streak, wowed the crowd as he was visiting from his home at Highpoint Performance Horses, and had a two-year old son sell for $9,500.
The high seller of the day was lot 3, Streakin Silkpanties, a two-year old bay roan mare sired by A Streak of Fling and out of Famous Silk Panties by Dash Ta Fame. Her proven pedigree from top to bottom features the outstanding dam, Famous Silk Panties, who has over $235,000 lifetime barrel racing earnings. This silky-moving filly, consigned by Fultons, brought $62,000 and sold to Rafael Celeste, Oklahoma.
Second high seller was lot 2, Fling A Penny, sired by A Streak of Fling and out of the dam, Short Penny by Dash Ta Fame. This two-year old sorrel mare was not only pretty as a penny but is a full sister to the stand out performer, Fame Fling N Bling (LTE $765,000), and the last of this bloodline to sell at the Fulton auction. She was consigned by Fultons and brought $43,000 – she will 'shine' with her new owner, the talented photographer, Bee Silva, Texas.
A Streakin Traffic, a shapely buckskin weanling stallion, sired by A Streak of Fling and consigned by Fultons, was lot 23, and sold for $28,000 to Sally Widdows, Washington. This beautiful buckskin's dam is Morning Traffic by Frenchmans Guy. She is still running in barrel racing competition and and boasts lifetime earnings of $120,000!
Lot 1, Streakin Kingfatima, a two-year old bay roan stallion and lot 5, Tiny Gay Fling, a two-year red roan filly, both sired by A Streak of Fling, brought $26,000 each and sold to Howard Curtis, Colorado and Mike Larson, Nebraska, respectively. Lot 10, Streakinfrench Flash, the high selling two-year old sired by CS Flashlight, brought $15,000 and is heading home to Chris and Kim Abbott, Nebraska.
