Horse Market. —Mr T. Bullock reports for .thqweek ending 3Vd Dec.:—At the Bazaar on. Saturday there was an average attendance of settlers and others, but only a fdw' holes’ were; ’entered 1 for sale, most of which were light harness horses, and a : few fairly igood draughts, but the reserves placed upon, them by settlers were;too high, consequently the best draught stock werq passed. If farmers were only ;to accept market value for their horses moresales could be effected. Medium draught and light harness Horses sold much better than at previous sales. The entries for the day were 16, out of which ! sold 10, which may; be considered a very good sale indeed., ; The; prices realised were as fol-. lowa;—Medium.draught, LlB, Ll 5; light harness horses, Ll 6, Ll2 10s, Lll; hacks, from L6‘to L 6 10s.
