The second sale Dixie will be at will be the 5th Annual Farm Colt Sale in Quarryville PA hosted at the Abner Stoltzfus Family Farm (515 Hollow Road, Quarryville PA) on October 29th. This sale needs no introduction, as it has produced many of the best colts placed on the market for the past several years. The only difference in the October 2021 sale will be more colts. Look for 75 head or better at this sale. If you are one for tradition and consistency, this is your sale. There will be no disappointment in the stock, the atmosphere, the overall handling of the sale. Some of the top selling mule pairs over the last couple of years have originated from this sale. Blondes and sorrels will be the popular color at this sale. All colts will be coming directly off of farms and bred from the founding breeding stock of this sale. Abner Stoltzfus 717-806-0458 is the contact for more information. Also, Dixie will be displaying up to date preview photos and broadcasting the preview colt exhibition as well as the sale.
