If you look at the January 24th posting it is easy to see why Hill ‘N’ Dale Canada has had a busy week booking 4 mares to STORMY ATLANTIC. If not the most versatile sire in North America, “STORMY” must be among the top couple.

Also sold this week were seasons in OSS Freshman sire MARCAVELLY, and Champion LEONNATUS ANTEAS. Both horses are accomplished on the racetrack and stand at John Burness’ Colebrook Farms: http://www.colebrookfarms.com/

Hill ‘N’ Dale would be pleased to talk to you about your sales needs (buying/selling).
