RAPID CITY, SD – Once again, when all that talk about a depressed economy has us knocked down to the bottom rung, there is an event that boosts us back up for the next round. The 52nd Annual Black Hills Stock Show & Rodeo Horse Sale proved that quality consignments continue to draw considerable interest from horsemen willing to spend top dollar for what meets their needs.

The 2010 First Interstate Bank Horse Sale took center stage the first weekend of the BHSS with two sessions – Friday, Jan. 29 and Saturday, Jan. 30. The 460 buyer numbers documented addresses from across the nation and Canada to bid on the 154 consignments from as far away as Florida and Kansas. Auctioneer Lynn Weishaar of Reva, SD and Announcer John E. Johnson from Piedmont, SD made their return back into the BHSS auction block, helping to set a new record average – $1,250 over the 2009 event.

Eighteen of the regions leading Quarter Horse sires were once again showcased at the BHSS Stallion Row on Jan. 29-31. Own sons of Shining Spark, Peptoboonsmal, Mr Eye Opener, Dash Ta Fame, Smart Chic Olena, Sun Frost, Smart Little Lena and Frenchmans Guy were presented along with the other stallions to the standing room only crowds in attendance prior to the sale each day. Nu N Shiney, a 2003 palomino son of Shining Spark and owned by Bud Fay from Gillette, WY, was awarded a horse blanket sponsored by First Interstate Bank as the Best Fit Stallion on Stallion Row for 2010.



A live internet feed of the 2010 BHSS Horse Sale was once again provided by Alan and Cindy Taylor of http://www.horseauctions.com. They hosted live daily coverage of horse events being held at the Event Center starting on Jan. 23rd – now a full week of events leading up to the sale at the civic center. Competition continued there during the second full week of the BHSS and concluded with NCHA Cutting the final two days of the show.

Trainer Casey Vaughn from Scenic, SD has always had that ‘soft touch’ in his training methods that fellow horsemen appreciate and try to emulate. His consignment to the BHSS offered that along with a powerful pedigree strong in arena performance bloodlines. Sired by the $3 Million sire Frenchmans Guy, the 2000 bay mare Frenchmans Wish drew phenomenal attention prior to the sale and topped the market at an impressive $16,000. The talented mare, out of a double-bred Country Bill mare, was billed as “having done everything there is to do on a ranch,” already raised two foals and left the ring on a bid from Ken and Roxanne Ripley from Mobridge, SD as part of the Saturday sale offering.



Consigned by Cody Wilson of Lennox, SD, the 1999 APHA bay overo gelding Painters Van Go was the second high seller, also on the Saturday sale. Beau Bonanza and Scenic J Bar bred, the loud colored, multi-talented gelding caught the eye of Dave and Kathy Bauman, owners of Bauman Red Angus in Linton, ND. on a bid of $13,000. Sharing the spotlight as high sellers at $8,400 on the Friday sale were Sabres Blue N Cowy, a 2002 gray gelding consigned by Clint Hufty from Rapid City, SD and Okies Spring Doll, a 2001 bay daughter of Okie Joe Glo, consigned by James Leach, Sturgis, SD.
