Lazy K Ranch Prepares For Its 29th Annual Pick-a-colt Day Production Sale The First Saturday In May
Featuring Ranch Horse Bloodlines -- 60 Head Guaranteed To Be Sold for $575 - $975 Internet Purchase Option For Long-Distance Buyers
This Quarter Horse and Paint horse sale offers more than 75 colts, fillies, yearlings and a few very kid-friendly riding horses all priced to sell with at least 60 head priced between $575 and $975. All horses are pre-priced and sold on a first to pick first to purchase basis.
“We are excited this year to offer more colts and fillies from our new stallion Lotta Stuff To Shine,” said Larry Knapp, sale manager. “This outstanding stallion did a great job covering some of our best mares.”
The colts and fillies for sale the first Saturday in May come from the largest working remuda of kind, classy, registered mares on the West Coast. Each horse will be available to view online at LazyKRanch.com in January. Information on each sale horse includes their pedigree and a photograph plus the photographs of their sire and dam.
Buyers can visit the site and narrow their selections prior to arrival sale day.
For those who can’t make the trip to the ranch, the sale is open to Internet customers one hour after the sale begins. The Internet option allows anyone, no matter where they live, the opportunity to purchase a good ranch, show or trail horse at a great price and have it shipped anywhere in the country. Prices for each horse are posted on the ranch Web site, Lazykranch.com, the night before the sale.
On sale day, May 5th, the ranch opens at 8:30 a.m. The sale begins at 10:00 a.m., followed by the online portion of the sale at 11:00 a.m.
“It’s quite a sight to see when we open up the gate to the horse pens,” said Sherry Knapp. “People are so excited to finally see, touch and “PICK” the perfect horse that they have been viewing online for months.”
The Lazy K Ranch, owned and operated by the Knapp family, has run cattle and horses in the San Joaquin Valley and Sierra Nevada Mountains for three generations. “We started out as a cow outfit,” said Mike Knapp. “In the summer our cows run on 45,000 thousand acres at elevations up to 6500 feet. To get these cows gathered in the fall we
need a horse with a good mind, good legs and a big heart.”
