Hot was the word of the day in describing the 20th Annual Ranchers Quarter Horse Breeders Association Sale. Over 250 buyers came out for the sale day activities along with a large number that viewed and bid on the internet. There was lots of interest in the offering and it held strong through the entire sale.
Winning the Yearling Filly Class was Snippys Shine, owned by Mike/Linda Howie, bred by Long Quarter Horses.
The Yearling Gelding Class was won by Cowboys Streakin Jet, owned by Bunny Bothwell, bred by Long Quarter Horses.
The Yearling Stallion Class was won by WS Just Watchin, owned by Tairyn & Stoyan Lucey, bred by Gumbo Quarter Horses.
Winning the Two Year Old Class was Becky Amio on Harlans Lucky Seven, bred by HM Quarter Horses. Winning the Three Year Old Futurity was Tom Coolahan riding Boonys Skeets bred by Shield 5 Quarter Horses.
It was getting downright hot, when the unique to this sale, weanling showcase began. The showcase allows potential buyers to compare foals side by side in the arena. Saddle horses had a chance to show their “hot stuff” in the preview on cattle, barrels or ridden prior to the sale.
RBQHA appreciates consignors, buyers and sponsors alike. Next year the 21st Annual RQHBA Sale will be Aug. 22, 2021.
