HyLee Farm Production and Consignment Auction



On October 30th HyLee Farm hosted the 3rd HyLee Farm Production and Consignment Auction. There was a total of 34 head consigned, 10 from HyLee Farm and Jane Steffenhagen estate and 24 outside consignments. A total of 30 head were sold and 4 consignments had their reserves not achieved. All results are on the HyLeeFarm.com web site. The average price on the 30 head that sold was $6650.00. Corcel graciously donated a wool cooler to the top 5 selling consignments.

Those top 5 were: HyLee's Dannation, a handsome bay gelding by Liberation First Star and a half brother to HyLee's Goldsmith. He was a crowd favorite in the Park Saddle division at Oklahoma City this year. He was purchased by the Gefke family for daughter, Frannie, to show in the Junior Exhibitor Park Saddle division in 2011. Second high seller was HyLee's Goldmine, a black western pleasure mare who is a half sister to the World Champion, HyLee's Fanflaire. She was purchased by the Errington family for Lindsay to show in the ladies division next year. Boxford's O’Haire, a sharp moving, high-headed gelding, was ridden through the auction arena by Steve DeBolt selling to Art and Nancy Hattan in Ohio. Two horses tied for 5th highest selling. HyLee's How Sweet Itiz, a very showy 2 year old who was Grand Champion Mare at this year's North Star show, and who has great presence in harness was taken through the arena by John Oder and purchased by Jeremy and Lindsey Johnson in Minnesota;

HyLee's Grace's Moriah, a black 2-year old filly by Mizrahi, was ridden through the ring by Tasha Smazinski, and unknown to her until later was purchased by her parents, Andy and Cyndi Smazinski. This upfront-forward moving filly will be a star in the 3 year old divisionnext year. Both these lovely fillies are good candidates for the UPHA Classic classes.

All the consignors brought very useful and well-trained horses to the auction and there were horses suitable for many different divisions and trail and pleasure. Several consignors were breeders who offered their stock in all ages and stages of training. It is my hope that this auction will offer an outlet for breeders to sell nice young horses and get them out to the public so that more people will appreciate the type of horse each breeder is raising. We need breeders. Buyers came from the Midwest and the east coast with 9 selling in New Jersey, Connecticut and New York.

Bill Addis was again the auctioneer and he gave each bidder a fair chance to own a horse and every consignor had fair time spent in the auction ring to sell their horse. This year DV Auction was added to the auction program. This company put our auction in "real-time" in the showing and bidding of the auction. At our preview on Friday

night we had 33 people watching it on their computer. On Saturday we had 39 bids on the internet, 2 horses sold on the internet and over 300 people were watching it on the internet. This allowed people who couldn't travel or make it to the auction the opportunity to watch or actively bid.

HyLee Farm plans on hosting another auction in October of 2011, which will be the last weekend in October.
