The Return to the Remuda Sale at the Four Sixes Ranch in Guthrie, Texas, on October 2 saw 168 horses sold to the public and the highest gross in the history of the sale.
The annual sale experienced the largest crowd ever on-hand to preview and purchase from the legendary ranches of Beggs Cattle Company, Four Sixes Ranch, Tongue River Ranch, Pitchfork Land and Cattle Company, King Ranch and Wagonhound Land & Livestock.
“I thought last year’s sale would be hard to beat, but this sale surpassed all of our expectations. Our buyers came from all over the country—California to Florida and 21 states in between,” said Four Sixes horse division manager and resident veterinarian, Dr. Glenn Blodgett, DVM.
The sale gross exceeded $3 million with an overall average of more than $18,000, a 32 percent increase over 2020.
“The 2-year-old geldings and yearlings stayed consistent with last year’s sale, and we saw a considerable increase with aged geldings, weanlings, and older filles,” Blodgett said. “The biggest gains were with the broodmares and stallion prospects, having above average offerings in those categories.”
All the ranches expressed appreciation to everyone who participated in the Return to the Remuda Sale.
“The success of the sale acknowledges our efforts in producing horses that are sought after for ranch use and in the arena. There is nothing more satisfying than to see sale graduates thrive under new ownership,” Blodgett said. “We wish all the buyers success with their new purchases.”
