AHHS Limited Breeders Stallion Service Auction

The 2010 AHHS Limited Breeders Stallion Service Auction was held Saturday, Feb. 27th at the Old Stone Inn in Simpsonville, Ky., and boasted a terrific turnout of more than 85 people for cocktails, dinner and stallion service auction.

The organizing committee of chairman Chris Gantley, Steve Kildow, Tom Lowry and Rodney Hicks worked hard to plan the event and helped make it a big success.

Approximately 85 people made the trip to enjoy the event and bid on stallion services of some of the most popular and prolific Hackney Horses and Ponies. Those in attendance represented Texas, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Georgia and Kentucky.

AHHS President Randy Harper conducted an information session which included answering questions from the group. The AHHS Limited Breeders program has been revised for 2010 and now closely resembles the highly successful All American Cup. Both events are held at the All American Horse Classic in Indianapolis, Ind.

The evening also featured a silent auction and one of the featured items available was a full set of Roadster silks donated by Diana Buerkley.

A total of 45 stallion services were sold which included 38 pony stallions and seven Hackney Horses.

The top selling pony stallion service was purchased by Bruce Ekstrom and Charles McCallister. Heartland Head Of The Class, donated by Darrel and Sandy Kolkman brought a winning bid of $3500.

Darrel Kolkman had the winning bid of $1750 for Twin Willow’s McMillan. Ed and Jean Wilson, of Twin Willows Farm, donated the stallion service.

Carl and Kathryn Nichols not only donated the service to Dun-Haven Phenomenal, but they purchased it back for $1600. They also donated service by Crystal Creek Commander which was purchased by Sandra Surber for $1500.

Golden Creek Farm donated service by Twin Willow’s Handsome Dan and purchased it back for $1600.

Co-owners Karen Frickey and Brad Bacon donated service by Dun-Haven Celebrity. Brad Bacon had the winning bid of $1100.

Jerry Elmer paid $1000 for the service by Dun-Haven Regal Attraction which was donated by Dan Light of Light Farms.

Brickell Romeo was the highest selling Hackney Horse Stallion Service. Glenn Werry donated the service which was purchased by Carl Nichols.

Steve Kildow spoke about the success of the event: "It was a very good day for the Hackney. The attendance was outstanding. I think everyone was ready to put winter behind them and have some fun. We accomplished that. We are already planning for 2010".
