IF first impressions are made in 15 seconds, then good first impressions were the order of the day at the Young Stock Sport Horse sale at Cavan on Thursday, November 21.
This sale surely kept pace with similar sales in September and October. The Premier foal section was definitely a draw for buyers and there was the added attraction of some extremely well bred and well turned out two-year-olds and foals in the regular part of the sale, where some excellent prices were achieved.
The average price shows a €300 rise on the same sale last year, with 30% more Lots changing hands.

Lot 212 – Two-year-old bay gelding by ‘Ard VDL Douglas’ – €8,500;
