       WHITE PINE, Tenn. - The Smoky Mountain Sale hosted a great turnout with a total of 220 entries. It is a two-day event that was held on Feb. 23 and 24, 2007, at the Smoky Mountain Expo Center in White Pine, Tenn. The sale got under way on Friday evening around 6 p.m. with the starting of a great selection of two-year-olds. Over 60 colts paraded through the sale for selection. Crowds gathered around inside and out looking for their special horse. Many spectators, buyers and trainers came out for the event from all across the country.
“Whether you are looking for a pleasure horse for your family or a show horse to ride, you will find it at this sale,” said Kenny Smith.
