Date: September 15, 2013
38 Horses – $3,524
Top 5 Horses – $6,660
Ladies and gentlemen, they did it again. Harry Kerr, Michelle Rotenberger and Grant DeSaye had another huge success with the Southwest Select Broke Horse Sale at the Bowman Auction Market in Bowman, N.D. The day began with an early preview at the All Seasons Indoor Arena also in Bowman, N.D. Here the potential buyers, pedigree announcers, and consigning comrades could find out first hand what every consigned horse was like on a very brisk fall day. No big accidents to report, only that there was some top quality cowboys aboard top quality horses, which all whom attended the preview and sale would concur. This sale is operated with all the cards out on the table and no hat tricks. The entire staff at Bowman Auction Market did an outstanding job and once again it was a strong, honest sale where everybody could buy and sell in confidence. Here is how the top stacked up:
Lot 3, Shawn’s Awesome Chec, a 2005 sorrel gelding consigned by Tyler and Janna Pennington, topped the sale at $9,100. Purchased by Brett Lesh of Ekalaka, Mont., most likely for his stunning good looks, desirable disposition, and freakish athleticism. This big gelding is out of Little Chec going back to Smart Little Lena on the top side with his dam, Tyler’s Little Angel, going back to Major Bonanza.
Lot 10, “Cat,” a flashy 2008 Bay Tobiano gelding was brought by the Entzel family and purchased by Jeff Ellison of Lemmon, S.D., for $6,400. Cat is a grandson of High Brow Cat on the top side and out of a Freckles Playboy dam. This horse was trained well and knew how to do anything and everything, many people wanted to take him home.
Lot 19, “Wade,” sold for $6,200 to Jeff Burger of Wibaux LLC, Wibaux, Mont. This gentle giant came by way of the Hammel Ranch, he was a good looking buckskin ready for any level of rider. He is a 2003 grade model and a good horse well worth the money.
Lot 31, WS Im An Orphan, 2007 gray gelding consigned by Wayne Kukla of Killdeer, N.D. “Razor” was a sure-footed, stout horse, good for everything. Purchased by Jeff Burger of Wibaux LLC, Wibaux, Mont., for $6,000. Sired by Skip Regulate going back to Sierra Te and his dam, WS Dee DS Orphan, going back to Docs Oaks Sugar.
Lot 25, “KC,” sold for $5,600 to Alan Maier of Elgin, N.D. This 2004 grade, gray gelding was consigned by Link Thompson and could do everything on the ranch with his eyes closed. An outstanding gentle horse consigned and bought by honest people.
