Successful Smoky Mountain Sale Topped By Walking Armed



WHITE PINE, Tenn. - The place to be on Friday and Saturday, February 21 and 22, 2003 was at the Smoky Mountain Sale in the beautiful Smoky Mountains. Rain on Friday, beautiful 60 degree weather on Saturday, and snow on Sunday didn’t prevent the large crowds that appeared at White Pine to see all kinds of horses and bidding was lively.

The staff of the sale, held at The Great Smoky Mountains Expo Center in White Pine, Tenn. was extremely pleased with the event. By the lively bidding, it was evident that the Walking Horse industry is flourishing!

The bidding was brisk and competitive on everything from broodmares, yearlings, pleasure, spotted, racking and performance with plenty of fine stock in each category. With 264 horses being cataloged the sale started on Friday at 5:00 p.m. The two-year-old session was held on Saturday afternoon. Many horses sold outside the ring and several were resold after their purchase.

Walking Armed topped the sale and this beautiful Gen’s Armed And Dangerous stallion was consigned by Latham Stables. Faye Witcher II was the new owner.

The reserve spot went to Busted And Bay, a high stepping two-year-old stallion by Pusher Busting Loose. Busted And Bay was consigned by Buzzard View and was purchased by Charles McSpadden to be campaigned under Paul Livingston’s Stables. Busted And Bay topped the two-year-olds at the sale and was the reserve highest priced horse in the sale.

The two-year-old Cut All was the third overall in the sale, consigned by Keith Blackburn and purchased by David Perry.

The fall edition of the Smoky Mountain Sale is scheduled for November 7-8, 2003 in White Pine, Tennessee.
