Mid Atlantic Breeders Sale

by Nancy Galusha


The Mid Atlantic Breeders’ Sale enjoyed another successful year both in attendance and quality of the Morgans presented. The quality continues to improve year after year. The sale days changing to Friday and Saturday seemed to help with the event taking place on Dec. 7-8, 2007. As always with the fall/winter sales, weather is always a factor but Mother Nature cooperated for the most part. Consignors came from all over the East and as far away as Iowa and Michigan to present their horses to potential buyers. At the Mid Atlantic Sale both consignors and bidders can enjoy a relaxed atmosphere where you have a chance to catch up with old friends and meet many new ones as well.


Peter Fenton once again read pedigrees and was joined by auctioneer Jim Price. The return of Jim Price this year was a good move on the part of the Mid Atlantic auction. Price made sure all horses received adequate time in the auction ring. In addition the team of Fenton and Price made sure that things kept rolling along while adding some humor when needed.


It was evident that the sales committee consisting of David Lantz, Dan Allgyer, David Glick and Dale Stoltzfus had been working hard again this past year and continue to make great strides in making the sale better for both consignors and buyers.


Friday evening saw the first 75 of a total of approximately 200 horses come through the auction ring to be sold. Saturday morning started with the popular stallion presentation. Eleven Morgan stallions were presented to the public. Some of the stallions to be presented to the public included LVM The Black Ace (by Simply Maserati), De La Renta (by Mizrahi), MEM Bacardi (by MEM Bailamos), MCC Lady’s First Dance (by Born To Boogie) and Sharped Dressed Gentleman (by ZZ Top). 


The high selling horse sold for $8,500 was consigned by Sam Lapp with Lynn and Kathy Peeples acting as agents. The lovely SSL Unique Creation is by Tug Hill Celebrity out of the Born To Boogie daughter, Honeytree No Illusion. The second highest selling horse, which sold for $8,200 was the almost black western pleasure gelding Flairely Apparent who is by HVK Noble Wind out DSF Leader’s Duchess. Lisa Brown rode her lovely gelding through the auction and Jim McCleester acted as agent.


All in all, the sale continues to be well supported within the Morgan community. It has become a great place to shop for broodmares and prospective show stock. It is definitely a sale to put on your calendar for 2008.
