In addition, 10 moreAbsolute Bloodlines horses from other consignors will be included in this auction event for a total of 90 horses. The sale will begin 4 p.m. at the Lancaster Events Center in Lincoln, Neb. and is in conjunction with the Nebraska Silver Classic Futurity.
With the exception of Absolute Investment, every McWhirter consignment will be sold with no reserve. If Absolute Investment does not meet his reserve, he will continue to stand at the Kentucky Division of Gumz Farms.
Dan McWhirter Quarter Horses has left its mark on the quarter horse industry for more than 30 years. The widely-known breeders have bred and raised some of the most influential sires of the performance horse world. This includes two Hall of Fame stallions, The Big Investment and The Invester, as well as Good Asset and Absolute Investment. These stallions and the success of their progeny led Dan McWhirter Quarter Horses to achieve an AQHA Top-5 Leading Breeder ranking.
Upon receiving this top AQHA status, Dan and Carol McWhirter decided they were ready to retire from the horse business to expand their farming operation.
“It’s a good time to step aside when you’re at the top of your game,” Carol McWhirter said. “We put a lifetime of effort into breeding quarter horses. Being recognized as a leading breeder by the largest horse registry in the world lets us know we have achieved our goals.”
Dan McWhirter Quarter Horses’ AQHA status includes Top-5 in Performance point earners, Performance class winners and Performance Halter class winners. They also tied for 18th in all-time breeders of AQHA Performance ROM horses and were ranked Top-10 in Performance Halter class wins and Top-15 in Performance class wins.
However, the McWhirters are quick to attribute their success to their clients.
“We are a Top-5 breeder because of the success our customers have had with these horses,” McWhirter said. “We spent a lifetime developing our breeding philosophy and are happy to be able to give others the opportunity to carry on the Absolute Bloodlines.”
