KWPN Online Foal Auction 2016

KWPN brings breeder and user together by facilitating an Online Foal Auction. This auction offers a platform for buyer and seller, where both the professional and amateur can find their ideal foal. Foals are professionally presented and recorded on video during the foal presentation day in Ermelo. The KWPN places and presents the foals on the platform kwpnonlinesales.com. The editions of 2014 and 2015 showed that the online auction is an initiative with a lot of potential and wide international reach.

About the KWPN Online Foal Auction

Several years ago, the KWPN launched the Foals for Sale list. Many breeders advertise their foals on this popular list to capture the interest of prospective buyers who visit the KWPN website. In 2014. we launched a new marketing initiative: the KWPN Online Foal Auction. This virtual auction is an enhanced version of the Foals for Sale list, and now yearly, KWPN members will have the opportunity to sell their foals through the KWPN Online Foal Auction.

Online selling has great potential for success and can reach a large international market. This initiative drives great interest from buyers outside the Netherlands, a number of whom purchased horses from the online auction collections.

The KWPN Online Foal Auction has its own specially for the online auctions designed website, with available foals categorized by breeding direction and pedigree. Each foal will be displayed at his own page, which will include a photograph, video, health declaration of a veterinarian, pedigree and dam-line performance in order to provide prospective buyers with ample information about the foals.

Sell a Foal

If you would like to sell your foal, please sign in in MY KWPN. Participating foals must be registered at the KWPN. Once you signed in, we will send you a confirmation e-mail with an official registration form. Foals registered for the sale will be received for selection by KWPN inspectors and filmed at the KWPN Center.

The selection criteria for the KWPN Online Foal Sale are as follows:
*   Foals must be free from external observable abnormalities (e.g. abnormal hocks, dissimilar/abnormal feet or an overbite).
*   Foals must have correct legs.
*   Foals must have a correct walk, trot, and canter.
*   Foals must be properly groomed. However, facial whiskers and hair on the inside of the ears must not be trimmed.

The assessment of KWPN inspectors is binding. Foals will be filmed during the selection process. Each foal will be filmed with its dam, which will be presented by a KWPN-designated handler. After the selection process, foals may return to their home location.
