Fell Pony Sale - 19th October 2007
Penrith Auction Mart - Under the auspices of the Fell Pony Society


Fell Pony Sales 2007This year's annual autumn Fell Pony sale took place in Penrith on Friday 19th October. In total 93 Fell , 6 Welsh, 2 Dales, and 4 Exmoor ponies were entered, although on the day only 94 ponies went under the hammer. Top price went to Mrs Greta Noble's black Fell filly foal Heltondale Bonny Lass VI which made 4,600 gns. Sired by Murthwaite Look at Me (FP51001C*), who in turn was out of  Greenholme Jess (FP2054*) by Heltondale Bobby (FP644C*) and out of Heltondale Bonny III (FP2589) - who in turn was out of Heltondale May Dew VII (FP1551) by Heltondale Rover IV - Bonny Lass is said to be the last foal from this particular breed line.

As usual a Fell Pony show was held immediately before the sale giving potential buyers the opportunity to see some of the ponies at first hand away from the pens and sale ring. Judged by Mr T Capstick (Murthwaite Fell Ponies - Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria) the ponies were divided in three classes - colt and filly foals, in-hand any age, and under saddle. Show champion was finally awarded to the black colt foal Bybeck Hercules, owned by Mr C Roberts, from Tebay just south of Penrith, while the reserve champion was the winner of the in-hand class - Leo owned by Mrs C Logan from Nenthall, Alston.
