Hosted by the Nova Scotia Chapterin 2010 - details posted. Bidding is done by phone and current bids are placed on the BID BOARD.
The stallions are divided into 4 groups in random order. One group will be bid on each hour starting at 1:00 p.m. Stallions with a valid bid at the close of their allocated time period will be considered SOLD and no new bids will be accepted, except as noted below and between parties which were actively bidding on that stallion service during the last 5 minutes.
At the end of each hour, those stallions 'not sold' during their time slot will be marked as such and will remain open for bidding until after the 4th group is closed at which time the auction team will continue to accept bids on those stallions listed as 'not sold' during their initial allocated time until final closing at 6:00 p.m.
Bids will be accepted on Second Round Stallions after their bidding hour - their 2nd round status will be noted on the bid board as 'not sold'. The Second round bidding will run from 5:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. at which time any further bids will be placed in the Final Round of bidding to close - Date tba.

The successful bidder will decide on the stallion of choice when they are signing the stallion owner's contract. These farms have donated a choice this year:
