2016 Yearling Gathering at Rising Star Ranch
We had a great time and sold some great yearlings during the 2016 edition of The Yearling Gathering at Rising Star Ranch. This year’s yearlings available to sell were down in volume but high in quality. Many yearling had sold quite well during the spring of 2016 which left the supply of the top quality yearlings for the sales during the Celebration somewhat limited.
