By Sue Hobby The Boers by Hobby 18th Annual “Hit the Accelerator” Sale was

our most successful sale ever with a sale average of $2,124 on 62 lots. Held on August 8, 2020, at Diamond-Bar Arena, Ceres, Calif., the sale was called by Auctioneer Pit Kemmer of Crossville, Tenn., and narrated by Bill Hobby.

This live auction included a masked crowd practicing social dis- tancing yet allowed buyers and spectators to view the sale animals in person. LiveAuctions additionally broadcasted the sale with 150+ viewers with more than 50% of the winning bids coming from online. The top-selling doe was Lot 20, Habi Biggs Flys Train H347, a

Trump Train x Westfall Mystery’s Encore daughter for $11,000. She was consigned by Ed and Sherri Biggs, Malin, Ore. Next in line was Hobby Keeping Pace J1933, a Hobby Pacesetter x Nats Major Star- dom dapple daughter for $6,500. She was consigned by Boers by Hobby, Hughson, Calif. We thank Celeste and Charlie Johns of Ea- gleville, Tenn., who won the bid on both high-selling does. Our sincere thanks also goes out to Sandra and Gary Duncan

of Able Acres Boer Goats of Crawfordsville, Ind., who were the pur- chasers of both high-selling bucks at $4,500 each: Lot 28 Hobby Moonshine J1997 (Moonslinger x Red, White, & Roan x Ruddy) and Lot 22 Habi Biggs 1361 (Fixin’ to Party x Daphy’s-Cannon x Swag).

the diversity and genetic story of the sale its best. Bill and Sue take pride in delivering most of the out-of-state goats by meeting buyers on the freeway to get their animals by no later than Thursday night (five days after the sale.) The Hobby’s are thankful for creating some of the finest bal- anced genetics including those provided by their guest consignors. The sale could not have happened without the many talents of our daughters Christie, Rebecca and Nicole plus the incredible group that helped wash, clip, photograph, lead and care for the consignment animals. A successful sale takes a team.

Our sincere gratitude goes to all of the buyers and bidders for their interest and purchases. Additional credits specifically go to Crede Garriot and Brooklyn Graham for assisting us on what Crede recently claimed Hobby genetics are “some of the most consistent genetics I have had the privilege of capturing.” n
