Lone Oak 12 Viking was Raised on Our Farm!!!
We are very proud of Lone Oak 12 Viking which sold for $67,500 US at the Mid-America Draft Horse Sale (a.k.a. "Gordyville") at another record-breaking event. Pictured above is this year's sale-topper, a four-year-old Percheron gelding.
Bred by Lone Oak Percherons of Birtle, Manitoba, Canada, the horse sold to Brian Thiel & Jason Bexson, Didsbury, Alberta, Canada, consigned by Jeff Berger, Black Gold Percherons, Williston, North Dakota. This makes Viking the highest-selling draft gelding of any breed, any time, anywhere (he replaced Harry, a 6-year-old gelding which sold for $60,000 at the 2014 National Clydesdale Sale. Seller Jeff Berger is pictured above left, with horse manager Gordy Ruzicka on the lead, and horseman Cody Woodbury in back.
