Well it’s official, on April 24th, 2018 the USU bidding closed at 8 pm. Reagan sold for $8,600 and collectively we earned around $118,000 that will go back into our program! Our top yearling was a stud colt by HF Mobster who sold for $11,500!
This class was such an amazing opportunity for me. I loved working with Reagan and seeing how far she has come from day one until now. While our protocol is mainly conditioning on the Hot walker she was able to pick up round penning quickly and seems to enjoy it.
During this semester I was able to learn the ins and outs of selling at a barn. This included different ways of advertising, what to say, getting the horses photo ready, getting them show ready, and so much more. This was my first time being apart of a horse sale and it was really interesting. My wish for the person who bought Reagan would be to enjoy her weird personality and give her the chance to reach her potential.
I will miss her like crazy and it will be sad to walk into the barn and see a empty stalll. But thank you Reagan for everything you have taught me this past year.
Until next time!
This was taken on our last day together.
