Online Pony Auction Sale Report 2022
Husseys are delighted to report that all ponies forward found new suitable homes that have been vetted and all for above the upset price. There were a couple of people who were denied the opportunity to bid including a lady with a large garden, a bloke in a caravan park and a lady who rung about 20 minutes before the last lots ended trying to leave bids, not being able to check people out last minute would have made the whole registration process pointless.
Thanks to all bidders who registered in the required manner the day topped at £820 for Phil & Richard Coakers Runnage Fudge a 15 month old gelding no doubt the lucky buyer was inspired by the auctioneer’s poetics!
