NYSDHC Holds Successful Fall Sale
CORTLAND, NY, Oct 21, 2002-The New York Draft Horse Club held
its annual fall horse and equipment sale on Oct 3 and 4.
Many volunteers made the day go off without a hitch, said Richard
Menkins, interim NYSDHC president.
There were 118 horses consigned at the sale. The top horse was
a Belgian gelding consigned by Jim Emo of Canisteo, NY, sold for
$2,700. Top selling mare honors went to Sharon Diamond of Erieville,
NY for her crossbred mare, which sold for $2,500. J. Peters consigned
the top selling Percheron mare for $2,300. Top selling Percheron
gelding honors went to B. Bird for two geldings, each sold for
$2,000. The top selling Clydesdale gelding sold for $2,300, another
Diamond consignment. Top selling Clydesdale mare went for $1,000,
consigned by M Welytok. The only consigned Shire, another Diamond
consignment, sold for $2,300.
This year's sale had a quality selection of tack. The sheet total
for tack was $76,009.45. Commission from tack grossed $6440.91.
This year's numbers reflect the positive direction being taken
by the NYSDHC within the past year. The popularity of the draft
horse in North America is also a key in the success of the sale.
The club will hold its annual banquet on Nov 2 in Syracuse, NY.
