Cowboys and cowgirls from across the west brought their best mounts to town for the 2023 Full House Horse Sale over Memorial Day weekend. “This is our fourteenth year, and the horses this year were some of the best consignments we have ever had.” Said Abi Deveraux, producer of the Full House Horse Sale.
Over 50 horses rode through the ring, all the looking great and ready to go to work. Whether it was a barrel horse, a calf horse or a working ranch horse, the sale had something to offer every purchaser with a variety of different price ranges.
The sale events kicked off on Friday night with a community BBQ hosted by the Deveraux family and sponsored by Pinnacle Bank. It was a laid-back evening where cowboys from across the region could catch up and swap stories and share their thankfulness for all the moisture the region has received this winter/spring. Speaking of moisture, the rain did not stop the cowboys from getting out in the mud and showing off their horse’s talent during the Saturday morning preview. “Horses that come here are in homes where they work no matter what the weather. Letting people see how the horses are under all conditions is something we strive for at this sale.” said Craig Deveraux
The overall sale average was around $19,000 and the top seller was Lot # 10 LDG Foxy Cat “Showtime” sold by first time consigners Kurt & Kade Kinghorn for $62,000. Showtime is headed to a ranch in Bozeman, Montana.
The WRANGLER Futurity Focused Equine News was live onsite with up to the minute sale coverage and partnered with the Full House Horse Sale for a “social media takeover” of sale and preview. “Partnering with the Deveraux family is always a treat, and we are so impressed with their forward-looking ideas on how to promote their sale to ensure that the cosigners receive top dollar for their horses.” said Dave DeLancey Co-Publisher of The WRANGLER. Repeat sale customer, Todd Hornbuckle came back for another purchase this year because he knows that “you can take it to the bank” what the Deveraux’s tell you about the sale horses. Todd ended up being the purchaser of Lot #2 Circle Bar Rabbit consigned by Broken Arrow Livestock for $41,000.00
Consignments will open in November for the next Full House Horse sale which will take place on May 25, 2024 at the Weston County Fairgrounds, Newcastle, WY. See www.fullhousehorsesale.com for more info.
