Location: Faith Livestock, Faith, SD

TSLN Rep: Dan Piroutek and Scott Dirk

It was surely a day of mixed emotions as Faith Livestock Auction hosted one of the biggest horse sales in their existence on Sept. 1. Buyers were from as far north as Canada and from California to Florida to witness and buy generations of proven AQHA breeding programs. A partnership that began many moons ago between the Lopez's and the Meyers walked through the doors and were offered for sale for the last time by these 2 great breeders.

Bob and Karen Meyer of Glad Valley offered stallions, mares and weanlings. The highlight of the sale was Star Struck Dun It, 2002 Buckskin Stallion sired by Hollywood Dun It out of Starleenic X Grays Starlight selling for $13,000 and will be standing at Fleetwood Farms Quarter Horses Alberta Canada and Four Star Quarter Horses (Patton Family) of Dublin Ohio. Fleetwood Farms also acquired Lot #7 Larks Shorty Lena (own daughter of Rugged Lark) as the 3rd highest selling mare of the Meyer's Program for $5,000.

Another great stallion from the Meyers program, SNW Northern Frost will be traveling just down the road at Parade SD at the Jim & Sharon Wright ranch. Their high bid of $9,250 won the son of PC Joes Frost out of the legendary Sun Frost. Jim Wheatley of Hughson, California purchased Frosted Sunman, 1999 Buckskin Stallion, sired by PC Frenchmans Mark X Sun Frost and out of Ima Sweet Note sired by Snippys Cowboy for $8,250. He also purchased two Drop Of Frost Daughters to add to his program.

Irish Goldmine, a 2015 Brown Mare sired by Irish Pay out of Little Black Bird was the high selling mare fetching $7,500 by Jace Booth. She is carrying a SNW Northern Frost foal for delivery in 2019. Lot 5, Dam of Irish Goldmine, Little Black Bird (Ninety Nine Gold Mine AAA X Wonders Florida AA) was the 2nd top selling mare at $5,250 and will be joining Kit Miller in Amidon ND.

Lee Lopez dispersed his last 2 mares with colts at side at the same sale. Frenchmans Parfait, a daughter of Frenchmans Guy, will make his home in Buffalo WY at the Davis Ranch after claiming a $5,000 bid. Jeff Anderson of Pierce NE purchased Streek of Red (Cee Heart Concho X PC Skipper) which goes back to the great Lopez Stallion Hunkey Tonk and PS Sun Socks on the bottom side.

Many breeding operations took advantage of the outstanding bred mares sold. $4,210 was the average of the top 10 mares sold. There was a total of 36 mares sold with an average of $3025.

The top 14 weanlings averaged $2,214. with Lot 50 of Bob & Karen Meyer's with a final bid of $3,600, a buckskin stud colt by Frosted Sunman X Starlight Patzi. Denny & Doris Lauing's high selling weanling was a sorrel filly sired by Colonel Frenchman out of Comos Hickory Cash, a home-raised mare out of their former stallion Lil Easy Feature and out of a mare that goes back to their senior sire Comos Cottoneye. Guest Consigners Glen & Janet Long's high seller was Lot 93 fetching $2,100, a bay roan stud colt out of Watch Me Go Cowboy X Gunsmoken Cowgirl.

4 yearlings were brought by guest consigners Ross Potter and Lane Lamphere of Sturgis that goes back to the Lauing's great stallions Colonel Frenchman and Dare To Be French. Lot 83 Pecos Two the Hilt (Dare To Be French X Chex Two the Hilt) brought an outstanding bid of $3,800 belonging to Ross Potter.

An outstanding bunch of riding horses were offered as usual. Archie Hulm's was the high seller Larks Fox bringing $8,750 originating from the Meyer's program was purchased by Gill Red Angus, a 2014 sorrel gelding by SNW Northern Frost X Larks Shorty Lena. Lil Frenchmans Peppy, a 2015 gray gelding (Frenchmans Hickory X LL My Gray Peppy Gal) consigned by Jake Moreland claimed $6750 purchased at a previous sale from the Lauing's. Kyle Edoff brought a 2012 sorrel gelding that won $5,500. Denny & Doris Lauing brought a 2015 gray mare Miss Comos Peppy (Colonel Frenchman X Comos Hickory Badger) that found a new home in Wyoming at $4,750. Trainer Sarah Moreland had put 90 days on the mare.

On behalf of Bob & Karen Meyer, Lee Lopez and Denny & Doris Lauing, we would like to extend our immense gratitude to those that attended in person, on-line or on the phone that bid on and purchased our horses. Thank you to Lynn Weishaar and John Johnson for doing a fabulous job as well and to the ringmen Dan Piroutek and Scott Dirk.

Auctioneer: Lynn Weishaar

Announcer: John Johnson

TSLN Rep: Scott Dirk

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.
