INVERCARGILL HORSE MARKET
Messrs J. A. Mitchell and Co. report as follows :—We held our usual sale in the Prince of Wales Yards', and had an entry of 50 horses—a varied assortment, including a consignment of draught and light horses from Mr James Thomson, Balclutha. While the demand was nowise brisk, ,we managed to place this lot, with one exception, at satisfactory figures. [We sold draughts at £35 to £2B for ordinary sorts, and withdrew several good animals at considerably higher prices ; aged active horses £25 to £lB ; old and stiff not in request. Hacks and light harness horses.— Nothing specially good forward. One unbroken four-year-old gelding, ‘by Blackwind, brought £l7 15s ; other ordinary sorts, £l6 to £l2 ; light and aged £9 to £3 ; several young unbroken animals, fair values.
