In 2012 the Limburg Foal Auction entered a new era. For eleven years the organisation was in the hands of the Stichting Limburgse Veulenveiling (Limburg Foal Auction Foundation). In 2012 the Limburg Foal Auction was organised by Stal Hendrix for the first time. Stal Hendrix also thus committed itself fully to the breeders in Limburg. They are given the possibility to enable their foal to find its way in the world. The aim of the Limburg Foal Auction is to provide a sales channel for breeders in Limburg.
The 2016 auction was characterised by the large collection comprising 107 foals. But this thirtheenth edition was more successful than ever. The main reason for so many foals is the cooperation with dressage specialist Gertjan van Olst in the organisation. A separate selection committee for dressage foals was also set up. This provided a great impulse.
In total 107 foals were auctioned and an average auction price of € 9.100,- was made. This is again an increase in comparison with last year. The top-seller of all times, Lardeaux (Ferdeaux x Wynton), was sold for € 38.000,-. The most expensive foal ever sold in the Limburg Foal auction.
The auction has gained a very international character. More than 40 percent of the foals were sold abroad. Interested parties from 29 different countries followed the auction via the live stream website.
