"Another Great Auction"
“It was another great auction. The collection was suitable for a very diverse audience. For many horses, there were several bidders who tried to take their chances” says Nico Witte.
Tim Coomans added, “we have seen and talked to a lot of people during the past few weeks when they came to see and try the horses. In addition there were also buyers, who without any questions in advance, had the winning bid and were able to take the horses home, which shows there is great confidence in our auction!”
