A total of 77 foals with the finest dressage pedigrees were offered for sale at the end of July in the ‘OnLive’ auction of the Westfälisches Pferdestammbuch. On this bright occasion, Glamorous was not only the name of the top-priced foal.
The friends of the Westfälisches Pferdestammbuch celebrated their foals with a unique atmosphere when 65 of the 77 foals changed hands for an average price of €13,688.

The Glamourdale x San Amour daughter had already made a fabulous appearance during the video shoot, and during the auction the filly, bred and exhibited by Gestüt Schultenhof in Norden-Norddeich, trotted in perfect rhythm round and around, showing great expression and elasticity.

The same customers also bought a colt, Bon Totilas (Bon Vivaldi NRW x Totilas) for €17,500. He was bred and exhibited by ZG Welsing/Bornhorst, Ankum, and impressed with his type and flawless performance in Münster-Handorf.
The most popular paraded colt also lived up to his name: Total Dance (Total Diamond PS x For Dance), bred and exhibited by Daniela Graé from Senden. The liver-chestnut colt convinced with his first-class movement quality, and as the opening lot created a perfect start to the auction. Finally knocked down for €45,000, customers fought long and hard, both live and online, to acquire this descendant from a top damline.
Three pony foals were also offered during the Onlive sale, finding new owners for an average price of €6,583. The most popular, Noonlight, was a son of Neverland WE, bred by ZG Kellermann, Nottuln, presented by the Egge family from Cologne out of the reserve champion of the 2019 elite show Donna Cara (Der Classicer).
