Highlife Farms Diamond Select Sale To Offer Exceptional Sport Horses During Fun-Filled Event on March 28th At Jim Brandon Equestrian Center
Wednesday, March 24, 2010
Wilcox, who shows Highlife Farms’ Der Euro OLD and Der Dollar, is the head trainer at Highlife Farms. “By combining dressage and jumping lines, Highlife Farms has produced offspring with exceptional movement and a strong bone structure, as well as the sensitivity I look for in my competition horses,” Wilcox said. “Joan realizes that the key to her success has been her selection of top quality sport horses with exceptional pedigrees for her foundation mares. Bloodlines are from Oldenburger, Holsteiner, Hannoverian and Westphalen, many of which have earned elite status with the German Oldenburg Verband.”

The official auction photographer will be Mel Argyle of Melspix Photo & Design. Ringmen and bid spotters will be Charles Stickler, Bob Groves and David McMurrer.
