Inglis to host auction in aid of bushfire victims

THE Australian bloodstock industry continues to rally around those stricken by the Victorian bushfires and Queensland floods with the news that the sales company William Inglis and Son will raise funds by conducting an online auction of donated stallion auctions.

Over 400 nominations have already been offered for the auction, which will be held in conjunction with Project Hope Horse Welfare Victoria (PHHWV) and run from April 20-24 at

Nominations to at least 26 breeds of horse, including several Thoroughbreds, will be offered at the auction.

"Stallion owners Tristan Bryan and Heather Studdy are to be commended for initiating this auction on Eques Online Horse Magazine, to help the entire equine community that have suffered in the fires and floods," said Mark Webster, managing director of Inglis.

"The money raised will be used to assist with the welfare of horses and their owners. Many owners are unable to feed their horses with barren or drenched paddocks, many no longer have facilities to maintain the safety of their horses and others require expensive ongoing medical treatment. This is a great opportunity for all horse lovers to unite for a worthy cause. Our goal is to raise at least $1m."

Donations of stallion nominations will close on March 20 and will be displayed on and
