Fourth Colorful Sale Held



The 4th Colorful Walking and Spotted Saddle Horse Auction was held November 20, 2004, at the Sale Of Champions Pavilion, Shelbyville, Tenn. The sale did not have as many entries as some in the past, but the quality and prices were well above average.

The top seller was the black and white stallion Professor’s Mountain Man, consigned by Bill Woodall, Tenn., and purchased by Jim Reeder, Tenn. The number two spot was the black and white brood mare by Gen’s Major General, Major Spot, in foal to Generator’s Got Colors, consigned by Bill Lancaster, Tenn., and purchased by Kenny Hopwood, Tenn. The third seller was the palomino brood mare in foal to Chance’s Sure Gold, Megan’s Gold Dust, consigned by Tim Vance, Tenn., and purchased by Bill Carr, Miss. The number four seller was the buckskin gelding, Buck, consigned by McIntosh & Vance, Ky, and Tenn., and purchased by Jerry Johnson, Tenn. The fifth selling slots were tied between First Class Bum, a black and white gelding consigned by Phil Dunivan, Tenn., and purchased by Tony and Alicia Brewer, Tenn., and Rock & Roll Preacher Man, a black and white gelding consigned by William and Martha Butler, Tenn., and purchased by Harold Johnson, Ala.

Sale managers Tony Neill and Tim Vance were well pleased with the quality and the attendance. The colored horses are still in strong demand. The next sale is scheduled for the last Saturday in February, 2005.
