KWPN auction season starts earlier and with more online foal auctions!
For years the KWPN organisaed Online Foal Auctions during summer. And also this year, KWPN will help its breeders with the sale of his/her foal(s). Given the success of recent years and the current corona crisis, it has been decided to start online foal auctions earlier and also to organize more auctions.
Physical auctions cannot take place for the time being due to the corona crisis. The KWPN has many years of experience with online auctions and over the years has built up a large international buyer audience. Just like last year, every collection appears online on a Monday, the bids start on the Friday after this and the auction closes after the weekend, on Monday evening from 8PM.
The very first KWPN Online Foal Auction of 2020 is scheduled for Monday July 6, the collection which will be available on Monday June 29 can be viewed on the auction website www.kwpn.auction.
All auction dates:
- June 29th collection online, closing auction Monday July 6th
- August 3rd collection online, closing auction Monday August 10th
- August 17th collection online, closing auction Monday August 24th
- September 7th collection online, closing auction Monday September 14th
- September 21st collection online, closing auction Monday September 28th
- October 5th collection online, closing auction Monday October 12th
Service and convenience
Nothing is changed in the concept of last year, to make it as easy as possible to join the auction for the breeder. Breeders only have to leave home once with the mare and foal. During the photo and video day, the foal is assessed by a KWPN inspector on exterior and in movement and clinically inspected by a vet. The veterinary report will be published on the auction website of the foal concerned and potential buyers can obtain more information from the inspector by phone.
The KWPN considers it important to support both buyer and seller as much as possible. In collaboration with our sponsor Horses2Fly it is possible to organize the transport of the sold foal abroad. The KWPN Online Broodmare & Embryo Auction has used this several times by various foreign buyers. A nice extension of the service, especially because more than half of the foals sold went abroad last year.
More information about the foal auctions can be found on the auctions page. If you have any questions, you can also contact Wim Versteeg on 06 54 20 18 00 or via firstname.lastname@example.org / 0341-255 511.
