This year, the Holsteiner Verband calendar is full to the brim with no less than nine foal auction sales scheduled. The opener is an online auction held on 22 Mai. 15 rigorously selected Holsteiner foals have made the grade with videos now online.
The online auction sale provides the clients with an interesting mix of offspring by proven sires and up-and-coming young stallions. The young sires include Cahil by Cornet Obolensky, who was a very frequently bred in his first season, same as Diamant van Klapscheut by Diamant de Semilly, who has already attracted attention at several outings in competition. Baloubet du Rouet son Baloucan (Hannes Ahlmann) and Chubkakko by Connor (Christian Kukuk) have been successfully shown in the youngster tour, both, and are both represented by offspring in this collection. And then the foals by internationally sought-after and established star sires like for example Big Star, Don VHP, Kannan, Caretino, Vingino, Grandorado or else Balou de Reventon. But no Holsteiner auction sale would be complete without Clarimo and Casall – these two names are just a must, and that on the sire as well as on the dam’s side of the pedigree. Speaking of the dam’s side: also in this respect, the collection leaves nothing to be desired. Like almost always in Holstein, the foals on offer are the produce of carefully bred and thus reliable and consolidated mare families. “This is Holstein’s strength and the envy of many competitors”, knows executive director Roland Metz. “I’m pleased we have again succeeded in putting together a balanced collection of above-average foals for the auction sale. In view of reduced travel costs and efforts, the online marketing offer is attractive in particular for our breeders outside of Schleswig Holsteins“, Metz continues.
As of now, videos and comprehensive information about the foals are available for viewing on holsteiner.auction. With the bidding starting on 20 May 2021 at 12 noon, the bid-up begins on 22 May at 6:00pm. Don’t forget to register in advance!
