The Farm & Ranch Show on April 10 featured the Performance Horse Sale, a sale of 24 of today’s top ranch, rodeo, penning and show horses to fit buyers’ needs. This year\’s high selling horse was six-year-old AQHA palomino gelding Misty Boy Rose sired by Chex Bueno Doc out of Go Misty Rose, consigned by Tyler Patten of Buck Lake, Alberta. This gelding was purchased by Todd Halina of Spruce Grove, Alberta for $9,200. After being to the preview just the day before, Halina had his eye on his new roping horse and had no intention of letting this golden opportunity pass him by.
Second highest seller at the sale, the flashy and well broke nine-year-old AQHA buckskin gelding CW Prime Whisky sired by Sunquest Whisky Hill out of Sheza Ollie, and consigned by Linn Jensen, sold for $6,400.
Following up was BSF Short Lil Wil, who has been ranch roped off and earned money in ranch cutting at Alberta Reined Cow Horse Association shows, consigned by Clayton Hines; and Royal Badger Lynx, consigned by Get-R-Done Horse Training, ridden by trainer Kody Potts, a horse that will earn a cheque for his purchaser either heading or heeling. Each of these remarkable horses brought their consigner’s $6,000.
