The UC Davis Equine Teaching Program

DAVIS – Even during tough economic times for the horse industry, the UC Davis Equine Teaching Program held a successful sale June 19 that provided proceeds to benefit the teaching program at the university’s horse barn.

Equine facilities supervisor Joel Viloria said six yearlings, a pair of yearling mules, two Warmblood/Thoroughbred cross weanlings and two broodmares were sold at a sale average of $550. The sale-topper brought $875.

“It’s a low sale compared to what we’ve had in the past, but it’s a tough time,” said Viloria.”On the bright side, the horses and the facility looked great.”
