INVERCARGILL HORSE MARKET
Messrs J. A. Mitchell and Co. report that they held their weekly sale in the Prince of Wales Yards on Saturday last, and had a fair entry <3O horses). The draughts, with two or throe exceptions were a very ordinary lot, and were also very hard to place, but by auction and privately a fair number changed hands at prices mostly in favour of buyers. The Clydesdale stallion “Sandow” (sire McArthur, dam Blossom by Old Clyde), was sold by auction to Mr ’James Wilson, Seaward Downs, at a satisfactory figure. They sold draughts at £3O to £2O for ordinary sorts, and quote good Morses to £4O. One useful spring-carter sold at £2O. Hacks and light harness horses—This class at presellt, owing to the high price of feed, is difficult to sell at anything but low prices. Several useful animals were placed at from £l2 downwards. rj,
