The sky opened up during Twin Arrow Ranch’s 14th annual Paint and Quarter Horse production sale on Saturday.

Despite the stormy weather a crowd of more than two hundred people showed up for the event. The sale featured 75 colts, mares and riding geldings for auction. 41 of the horses featured came from Twin Arrows Ranch with another 34 from outside consignors. While in the past many of the ranch’s horses have been sold internationally, this year’s edition are staying closer to home. Most were sold to buyers in British Columbia and Alberta.
