Fantastic foals: worldwide bidding is now open for the PS Online Foal Auction

It all starts today. From May 17–27, horse lovers around the world will be able to bid on exceptional foals in the third PS Online Foal Auction, all from the comfort of their own homes. The auction features a selection of young talents exclusively by stallions from the prestigious Paul Schockemöhle stud farm in Germany. Video below.

Some of the world’s best sires and dam sires are involved in the event. Sire Big Star, for example, won two Olympic Gold medals – one Team Gold in Show Jumping in London in 2012 and one Individual Gold in Rio in 2016. Dam sire Casall won the Longines Global Champions Tour and was a finalist at the European Championships, World Championships and Olympic Games. 

Among the 24 beautiful foals up for auction this year are the filly Big Casalla, born in March, who carries great Show Jumping genes. And for Dressage fans, the colt Fein Index by Feinrich x Don Index, born in February, already resembles his famous grand-sire Fürst Heinrich in type and movement. Other well-known names with progeny in the auction include Cornet Obolensky, Baloubet du Rouet and For Pleasure. For videos of each foal, current bid amount, veterinary reports (in German and English) and more details (in German), see the ‘current auctions’ sections here.

The online auction format is simple and user-friendly: anyone wishing to participate can register in a few clicks and submit a bid. The bidder will be informed via email or text (according to their preference) whether they are the highest bidder or if someone else has submitted a higher bid. And the greatest benefit of online auctions is for the foals and broodmares themselves, who have less travel stress. A report on a previous PS Online Auction is available here. 

For individual videos of the foals with their broodmares, please see here. For an overview auction trailer of some of the colts and fillies in the group, see the video below by the Paul Schockemöhle team.
