36th Annual Lopez & Meyer Quarter Horse Production Sale
The 36th Annual Lopez and Meyer Quarter Horse Production Sale was held at Faith Livestock Commission Co. on Aug. 20. There was a very nice crowd of new and repeat buyers on hand to sort through and purchase another great set of colts, yearlings and select ranch horses.
This was a very fancy set of yearling colts. They were sired by leading Quarter horse bloodlines and past colts from this sale are making great ranch horses. Horses from these programs are competing and winning in all levels in the rodeo arena, from 4-H to PRCA.
Guest consignors at the sale included: Hunt’s Open Box Heart Ranch, Arlen Hulm, Frink Quarter Horses and Steer Crazy Quarter Horses.
The top-selling colt of the day was Lot 24, Driftwoods Jo, from Meyer Quarter Horses. This March 2011 buckskin stud was sired by WC Driftwood Buck and out of a Fixers Crystal Brick dam. This sharp looking stallion prospect has lots of bone, eye appeal and a big hip. Bob and Sharron Haider, Mandan, ND, were the buyers at $3,100.
Selling at $2,100 was Lot 19, Rugged Jack, also from Meyers. The April 2011 buckskin stud colt was also sired by WC Driftwood and out of a Rugged Lark bred mare. This colt has a rodeo/ranch look to him and sold to repeat buyer John Hoven, Eagle Butte, SD.
Lot 36, Lopezspanisgold, from the Lopez Ranch, is an April 2011 palomino stud colt sired by Cee Heart Concho and out of a Frenchmans Guy mare. The colt sold for $1,750 to Dave Sehl, Cooper, TX, another repeat buyer.
